    United States - Last active: 09/05/2014 - Tests: 2

    Over the past 15 years I have developed a wide range of skills working as an independent contractor. I love to learn and because of that there are multiple jobs that I enjoy and excel at. Although I enjoy all of my jobs, I am most passionate about writing. I am fortunate to have a lot of experience in many areas, such as: Writing: SEO Content, Copy writer, Creative (bachelor's degree in Journalism), Mac Specialist, IT (tech support for AOL), Paralegal (legal asst. degree), Private Investigation (licensed), Researcher, Data Entry, Writing for ChaCha and Ask.com, Accounts Payable and Receivable, General Automotive Knowledge (1 year auto mechanics), and more. However, whatever it is that I am tasked to do I give my all. It is very important to me that I do the job to my employer's expectations; it makes them feel good which makes me feel good.

    Canada - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 11

    Designing and creating high-quality, stylistically pleasing, stable, functional, predictably formatted documents using the automated functionality features provided by the MS Word software, is what I do best. I have recently completed several MS Word formatting and template design projects through Upwork comprising: legal, financial and business documents; operations and technical manuals; training and course materials; all which were well suited to the numbering algorithms and other features provided by MS Word. I also have many years of experience working for the federal Justice Department typing, coding, tagging, formatting, proofreading and publishing legislation (draft bills, statutes and regulations) and other documents. Due to the high-profile nature of this work, I was required to produce quality work without errors prepared within short timeframes. Publishing for public accessibility was on paper, CD-ROM and the departmental website. I am from Canada and my native language is Canadian English so correct English spelling and grammar usage is quite natural for me. My knowledge and experience includes: - analyzing requirements and creating document formats and structures accordingly; - creating templates, style sheets and Definition Type Documents (DTDs) to enforce format and indexing specifications; - creating documents using different text editing, publishing and xml editing software: Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, Interleaf, Folio Views, Arbortext, Adobe Acrobat; - transcribe files using Express Scribe and InqScribe transcription software. I have a very good knowledge of legislative formats, structures and terminology. My performance evaluations frequently made positive reference to my dedication, commitment, reliability, conscientious attitude, persistence, efficiency, competence, creativity, perseverance, tactfulness, discretion, and attention to detail.

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 25

    I am an autonomous, results-oriented, high-energy, hands-on professional, with a strong history of accomplishments and proven track record of success. Most of my experience is in the retail and food service industry, as an assistant researcher at the University of Illinois at Chicago and as a Paralegal/Public Notary at an established Workers Compensation and Personal Injury law firm in the Loop of Downtown Chicago. While working at the law firm I was responsible for compiling, obtaining and summarizing medical records in order to draft Chronologies/ Abstracts for hearings presented before the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission (I.W.C.C.). In addition, I was responsible for drafting and filing subpoenas, motions, letters of demand and settlement contracts and many other legal documents.I was also responsible for case management of clients in all aspects form intake to settlement. I would either sign up new clients via phone or in person while having a duty to ensure correct judgment regarding compensability of claims, case evaluation, file set up, trial dates and meeting all attorney(s) deadlines. Through this process I assisted attorney(s) in corresponding and maintaining relationships with medical service providers, insurance adjustors, clients opposing counsel and many others via mail, e-mail, facsimile and telephone. While attending the University Of Illinois at Chicago I partook in two research projects. One was a research paper that was reviewed and approved by UIC’s board of criminology and presented during the lecture of a visiting Criminologist. The paper earned me the honor to graduate with High Departmental Distinction. The other research was conducted under the supervision of the Department Head, Dr. Amie Schuck. The research focused on finding a causal link between alcohol and violence in certain areas in the city of Chicago. Received IRB certification and was responsible for gathering initial data and canvasing initial research areas. I have strong written and verbal communication skills combined with enthusiasm for collaborating and learning. I love to thrive in a challenging culture and am eager to apply intuitive understanding, conceptual knowledge and various other skills attained through my personal experience. I believe that teamwork will always make the dream work and that empathy and great attitude will produce great outcomes.
