    My previous line of work led to the start of a VA business. My goal is to work with what I like and keep up the trend of various tasks. The rate described is my lowest rate, which I usually apply because I sometimes like to do assignments to keep my skills at a recent level, and then that rate apply. On the other hand could other duties require a higher rate. My VA role is one of the multi-skilled, or multifaceted as I use for marketing since I've learned a lot of different skills during the positions I held. I'm very service minded, as I started out as a cashier and office girl and had the privilege to work with people with genuine feeling for service. I find it likable and I also think it makes sense to keep a service minded attitude towards customers. If you see someone without a smile - give them one of your kind of recaps what service is. Additionally to the service offered in the line of work, that is. Later on I've for several years each, held positions as sales secretary, school secretary, administrative consultant, application specialist and web/system developer. Besides having extensive work experience, the studying of sociology, psychology and computer science at an academic level constitutes useful knowledge. Still today I feel at home in almost any constellation of work, I like to do repetitive tasks from time to time, and challenging tasks from time to time. Work satisfaction is important to me, and it means delivering good results, to be of benefit to the receiver. For myself the help and learn part goes a long way. One other thing to mention is that I learned to type at an early age. That skill has been both useful and fun during the years. Besides skills in service and typing, I'm interested in languages, both human and computer. Regarding human language, I write with a fine imagination, do my research and have a splendid vocabulary. Regarding computers, I like to make life easier for end users, and I also focus on usability. Regarding both languages, I also like to enhance the experience for the reader/user. Oh, I nearly forgot (if you're still reading this short essay that is), I also do some graphic designs from time to time. Web design, Logo designs, Business Cards, Newsletter, formatting in Word, layouts in PowerPoint and so on! We need beautiful things! Cheers!

    Well before the World Wide Web was a common phrase as it is today, before most people even owned a home computer I was programming code in a variety of languages for a variety of network related projects back when you had to put the handset of a telephone on a 300 baud modem. Trillions of lines of code under my belt and a mind that functions like a computer processing unit I not only understand today's most popular programming languages, I know how the languages themselves came to be. I am an expert who has owned, operated or worked with thousands of technology based businesses over the past 25 years. More than a programmer, I am a valuable consultant to any business wishing to build or improve any online enterprise. My work is relatively fast, accurate, functional and most importantly well constructed based on your exact needs. I do all of my own work but will bring in experts if necessary to accomplish the goals of your organization. I am an American living in Pennsylvania.

    Australia - Last active: 13 hours ago - Tests: 14 - Portfolio: 2

    A PHP programmer with almost 10 years hand on experience in various platforms. Stumbled upon zoho early last year and found the features very attractive and the API is super easy to customize. I can grantee seamless integration of zoho to your existing systems or if you want to go zoho from the begging I can be your consultant and the developer. In 2005 I started my journey as a PHP Programmer and graduated from the university of Colombo (Sri Lanka) in Bachelor of Information Technology in 2009 with a first class. During my tenure in the IT industry I developed my skills in PHP, Magento,Dot Net, Joomla, Drupal, Zend, Wordpress, CS Cart and Zoho. Accomplished in all areas of software development including, requirement analysis, architecture and design of applications, coding, QA and Testing, debugging, installation, troubleshooting, maintenance and Project Management. I was successful to achieve an overall band score of 8.0 for IELTS and have passed English Spelling Test ( both U.K & U.S. Versions) in oDesk. Therefore I strongly believe my English levels (specially written and spoken) are up to the international standers. A note about pricing: Usually I work on a fixed price basis. I will work with you to develop a project specification and then quote to do the whole job rather than working on an hourly basis. This means you have the peace of mind of knowing exactly how much a project will cost. If the scope changes, we will obviously need to discuss a change in price, but I think it is crucial that your expectations are clear as to how much you will be outlaying.
