    transcription, customer service, writing

    Philippines - Last active: 15 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.

    Hello! I am a multilingual, highly experienced professional. Two years ago I decided to go off the beaten path, leave my managerial position in fashion retail, which I loved so much and relocate abroad. That was the beginning of a very exciting freelance journey. I have a proven record of meeting and exceeding expectations and I always work as if I'm doing the job for myself. Mediocrity isn't something I cope with, so you can expect utmost attention to detail and fast turnaround. Currently studying Marketing management with entrepreneurship and working on my freelancer portfolio. To date, I have successfully completed over 100 research, data and translation projects with a focus on company research. Language certificates: - C1 level in Russian (mother tongue) - IELTS band 8 - B2 level in French I'm also fluent in Bulgarian (mother tongue) and can work my way around in Greek, Arabic and Spanish.
