    Although relatively new to the world of freelance writing, I have successfully completed several jobs on Elance with excellent feedback. I have a Diploma in Sustainable Horticulture and would particularly welcome the opportunity to write about health, nutrition and environmental issues. As an English Literature graduate (MA Hons Edinburgh University) I also have a strong interest in creative writing and can provide a mentor/editing/ghostwriting role to help you with your novel or short stories. Where research is necessary, I will do this thoroughly so that an authentic 'voice' can shape the material into original and engaging work. I can offer you a written product that is highly polished in terms of spelling, grammar and editing.

    Philippines - Last active: 21 hours 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.

    Management Professional

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 5

    I have over ten years of customer service experience, six years of commission based sales experience, and a grand total of five years of management experience. I love working with people, whether it be leading, coaching, and developing my team or connecting with my customers to create a great experience. Languages (and people in general) fascinate me. I plan on learning many languages. I can speak, read, and write Spanish and German. Although, I am still working on mastering both languages. My greatest strength is analyzing people, situations, or things. My greatest weakness is I'm a perfectionist. I want the best for everyone. My ultimate goal in life is to help the world. I want to help as many people as I possibly can. I want to be inspirational, a leader, and provide guidance to many.
