    transcription, customer service, writing

    Philippines - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 8

    I love the English language and have always been drawn to jobs that require its usage. In college, my feature articles figured in the local paper and I even won an editorial-article-writing contest. I've also worked as a radio DJ for 4 years total. Other than my DJ job at the station, it was my duty to collect news daily and transcribe them for broadcast. I have also worked as a customer service representative at a call center for almost 4 years. Communicating well with our American clients over the phone was key. Customers called in regarding their bill,to complain,to upgrade services, and to ask for technical support. I've learned to be ready for whatever issue the customer had and resolve it within the call especially when I was promoted to the escalation desk. I am now a new mother of a beautiful son. I currently have a job as an office clerk at a local cable company. I'd really love to work from home and be with my baby as much as possible while earning significantly more than I am now. I'm very much willing to learn and to work very hard to attain my goal to provide for my son while being home with him. Thank you for reading.

    Tech Savvy Executive Virtual Assistant with international experience

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4

    As a virtual assistant it is my goal to assist small and micro business owners to run their back-office smoothly, handling their Inbox, calendar, travel, correspondence, procurement and meeting schedule without a glitch. I have 15+ years experience as an executive assistant for international companies. In addition, I am also a certified translator (Spanish-English) and WordPress website creator. WordPress is my favorite tool to create functional, user friendly websites for clients, because it has a lot of flexibility to customize a site without having to write all the code. If clients are interested, I also like to teach them the basics to maintain their own site. Besides Spanish, I also provide Dutch language services (native speaker), such as translations, proofreading, editing and transcription. My thirst for knowledge allowed me to become an expert at work as an executive assistant, while getting my degree in Spanish to become a translator. After reaching that goal I began studying WordPress in my spare time to create over 20 customized websites with various purposes (blog, business profile, forum, eCommerce, etc.) and I currently manage such sites for my clients. I like to have an open communication with clients so there will be no misunderstandings and everyone can go home happy.

    Translator and Content Editor

    Argentina - Last active: 21 days ago

    As a multilingual translator and content editor I understand how to communicate effectively with individuals who speak another language. For the last 20 years I have been communicating across cultures and I because of that can ensure that all parties involved in a project, regardless of geographic location and background, come together and stay together through successful project completion. I have been awarded a translation subsidy by NORLA (Norwegian Literature Abroad) for the translation of two books of a major Norwegian writer. I enjoy working with people remotely as it is to work face-to-face, and cross-cultural communication is not a challenge for me.
