I have done translation and interpreting work on an individual basis and for large groups. Over the past 4 years I've worked as a Licensed Personal Banker for 2 large banks in New York.

As a Personal Assistant I managed the team and kept things running in the office. I touch type 60 words per minute and I am very comfortable working with computers.

    Serbia - Last active: 25 days ago - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 19

    Strong white hat SEO skills, I continue to grow and follow closely, on daily basis, all changes introduced by Google, incl. latest Penguine modifications. I am very careful with job selection, I don't apply or take what I can not deliver for sure. No generic emails/applications. Highly experienced in SMM, particularity Facebook marketing. I would be a perfect choice for jobs that need a prompt reaction regardless of the amount of job or time of the day. I love to work with start-up projects, ideally customer-oriented (customer perception related) jobs. SEO is my personal favorite, but I don't believe in fix-and-go solutions - it has to be a constant process. Online Marketing specialist, established blogger, ex TV & Radio journalist and as an ex PR executive with an extraordinary technical skills and advanced web development techniques and intensive experience with several major international organizations, mostly within communications, on-line marketing and customer-support departments, I can cover variety of jobs. I joined oDesk only in December 2014, but I have done/participated in more than 30 on-line marketing related projects through other similar platforms over the last 2 years. Here - so far, so good: 5 stars, happy clients, above expectations execution. I transcribe and do translations, only when I am bored and available due to lack of other jobs that I enjoy more, but if I apply for it, you can expect it done in highly professional manner. Voice-over in Serbian is my additional formidable skill - over 20 years of TV/Radio experience. Due to family issues, I need to start working from home only. Therefore, I seek online jobs, with entry level/low rates included, in order to get some positive feedback to continue climbing around here, but I am not really interested in data-entry jobs without added value.
