    Determined Fast and Reliable

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7

    I am currently doing volunteer teaching work in France. I speak, read and write both English and French with English being my first language. 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. Within the bank I managed the sales team, was responsible for meeting sales goals and assisted the manager in managing all functions of the branch. I have strong sales skills but also excellent oral and written communication skills. Part of my job was written communication with clients from diverse backgrounds. This helped me to become proficient in writing, proofreading, and correction. Also I have worked as a Personal Assistant and Manager where I was in charge of organizing meetings, travel arrangements and doing research projects. 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. I have transcribed videos and audio files. I enjoy writing and this passion has helped me to write many articles on a variety of topics in both English and French. I know the value of getting work done quickly and accurately. I am good at leading others to accomplish that same goal.

    SEO/SMM/PR/Publicity/Comms/Online Marketing Strategy/Translation

    Serbia - Last active: 1 month 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.
