    Montenegro - Last active: 17 hours ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 4

    I'm not one of those people who are being satisfied with the simple things. In life I have learned to respect the deadlines, follow the instructions and use them to get to the best possible result. I do not accept a job solely for financial gain but because I want to improve and perfect my knowledges. From my employer I expect to provide me a totaly freedom, because a perfectionist like me knows very well how to do his job. I like to improve myself everyday, learn unusal and non common things. My biggest passion are languages. I am fluent in Italian, English and Spanish. I'm a professor of Italian and Spanish and I have a strong desire to prove myself. I would like to open language school, which will be dominated by Italian and Oriental languages​​, above all Hindi. I have extensive experience in translation and I'm a person that will meet all your expectations in terms of translation. I speak Italian from the age of seven and the majority of Italian speakers do not believe that I was not born in Italy. This is a brief summary of my experiences and expectations, and you should contact me if you are offering a job in the field of Italian language. My primary interest is the Italian language but I'm also interested in jobs like: data entry, administrative support, blog writing, article writing, virtual assistent, web design, autoCAD modelling etc. My expressed qualities are optimistic spirit, communication skills, accuracy and extraordinary verbal skills.

    Australia - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 10

    Born in a competitive environment where a pause was an error and an error was a catastrophe I quickly learned that desires had to be gained too. A programming and IT industry background gave me an analytical thinking that, coupled with a natural cool blood and patience, makes me able to solve the most complex issues and obtain the best results even complex tasks with pressing deadlines. Well before the legal age I had to take the reins of a family business, giving it a x3 income boost in less than two years, while my home country faced one of the worst crises in the recent economical and political history. That was only the sparkle that started it all; I've already two successful start-up under my belt (from initial business plan to deploying) and the chance of new challenges makes my mind rev faster. I'm an "hands on" approach lover and if I choose to undertake a project I always succeed and exceed expectations. When I wished to learn about web and social media marketing I ended up writing a book aimed at new start-up and entrepreneurs. I'm a great buyer, I love it; give me an internet connection and an Excel spreadsheet and you'll have the best buy at the lowest possible price. When I find a good offer, then I'll make it a bargain. I've experience in leading and coaching small to big sized teams (50 people) through complex tasks and tight deadlines. As an added bonus I'm passionate in everything is complex and, thanks to a continuous learning process, my knowledge cover a vast amount of different topics.

    Web Researcher, Data Entry, Bookkeeping/Acctg

    Philippines - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 8

    I have been working as an Accounting Specialist for almost 6 years in one of the biggest call centers in Davao City, Philippines. It has provided me a lot of knowledge, discipline, and taught me how to be an effective & efficient employee and most especially to be a better person. I was the Team Lead of Treasury Section, the custodian of all petty cash funds of the company and do its corresponding reports. Since the company has its few number of Admin employees, I did a multitasking job both in Treasury & Accounting/Bookkeeping. Monitoring of company's Receivables was one of my responsibilities. Now, I am seeking for a more challenging job & other responsibilities that could benefit everybody, me, my family and of course the employer itself.
