    transcription, customer service, writing

    Philippines - 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.
