    I have over 15 years of experience in administrative/clerical assistance, internet research, and data entry. I have an AAS in Paralegal Science and plan to complete a degree in Computer Programming with an emphasis on Web Development. I am currently doing web research and data entry projects for clients here on oDesk. I have worked from a home-based office for two employers, and have also worked from my own home office. I enjoy the challenges and uniqueness of telecommuting and I have the time and flexibility needed to ensure the job gets completed efficiently. I offer excellent data entry skills (spreadsheets, lists, etc.), and administrative skills (reports, communications, emails, etc.). I recently was a Business Development Manager for a start-up online specialty services provider, which includes marketing (including email and social media marketing) and data management. I am very detail-oriented, professional, and motivated. I set very high standards for my work and guarantee a thorough, complete and error-free work product.

Example 1: Designed and executed ad effectiveness study for a new natural low calorie sweetener, interested in advertising in DailyCandy emails. Offered a custom solution that was instrumental in closing a deal worth almost half million dollars. Example 2: DailyCandy was often overlooked by marketers targeting Moms.

Both magazines implemented strategies that broadened their image and grew their readership.
