Data Entry Specialist, CSV/Excel/Word experience, Web Research.

United States - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 2

Owned a data entry company a few years ago called Data Express. Companies would give me very large projects on petition sheets. My job was to enter all the information from hand written petitions into a database accurately for my clients. I am highly skilled in entering, moving and manipulating large data files quickly and accurately between programs. I created and hosted an article website. Clients contributed thousands of articles. On occasion, I would have to do massive data manipulation of the mysql database. I have listed thousands of products on Ebay. I would perform bulk uploads to Ebay with data I generated from a massive Excel spreadsheet. This would also include scanned pictures of the products I was selling. This would usually be in a CSV file format.

Taylor Smith

House cleaner, nursing home volunteer, baby sitter, caring for animals

United States - Tests: 8

Hello! My work experience is years of cleaning houses for the elderly, many hours of volunteer work at a local nursing home, baby sitting, and taking care of animals. As for my education status, I graduated high school and consistently made almost all straight A's. I am fairly fast at typing on the computer and have many years of experience using computers. I would probably be great in customer service or answering questions because I am very patient, polite, understanding, and kind. I also am able to explain things in a way that almost anybody can grasp, even kids. Even though I don't have any work experience as a Freelancer, please do not dismiss me for that. I will prove myself as a dependable client. Anyone interested in hiring me will find that I am very polite and ready to follow orders. I will conduct myself very professionally. Here is some additional, less important information about me. I live in Pennsylvania, my birth place. I am 21 years of age. At the moment, I prefer payment through a Paypal account but may open up a bank account in the future if it may be easier. Although it's an odd number, I'm asking for $12.22 wage so that I can make 10 dollars, since Odesk and Paypal each take out a dollar fee. I see that it's recommended to make a video, but I don't have a recorder. If you have any questions or concerns, please message me. I look forward to hearing from potential employers!

Editor, Proofreader, Publishing Consultant, Web Developer

United States - Tests: 7

I'm an editor, writing instructor, publishing consultant and author with 30+ years of experience in the industry. I have held Senior Editor and Managing Editor jobs with print and digital publishers, and I was a bylined editorial staff member to the late Irving Wallace, one of the top-selling authors of modern times. I offer high-quality editing and proofreading services to authors and publishers. Self-publishing authors are welcome. I guarantee my work, and I've never had an unhappy client. For manuscripts over 10,000 words, I charge $.01 a word for proofreading, $.02 for copy editing, $.03 for line editing. I offer discounts for well-written copy and books over 80,000 words. Please request a quote for shorter manuscripts and projects requiring heavy rewriting. I also offer publishing support services: e-book and print formatting, cover design, ISBN and bar code allocation, and copyright filing. As a writing coach, I can help you with grammar and style, guide you on a project, or assist you in developing your own unique voice. We can explore the pros and cons of self-publishing versus traditional publishing and why/when you should seek an agent. My coaching fee is a very reasonable $45 an hour. I offer a "pre-review" service with a detailed critique of the first chapter of your book. I will perform intensive editing of selected passages and give you examples of how you can improve your work in progress. A pre-review will help ensure that you are on the right track before you invest your time and effort writing an entire book. I charge a flat $75 for this service. I began my editing career as a writer. I published my first article at age 14, and since then, I have published 12 nonfiction books, two novels under pseudonyms, 500+ bylined articles, and two dozen e-courses on writing, grammar and Web programming. My latest book is "Discover the Power to Change Your Life," available on Kindle and in paperback Feel free to contact me if you need an editor or proofreader, or if I can help with your projects in other ways. Have an awesome day!
