Maria jezreel cathereen M.

Virtual Assistant/Researcher/Encoder

Philippines - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 2

I have been working since I graduated from college. I took and passed the civil service eligibility exam so I could apply for jobs not related to my course. Fortunately, I got hired even though I didn't meet their requirements. To complement my lack of background in such jobs, I saw to it that I work with utmost efficiency and accuracy. To be able to do so, I continue to educate myself and I never stopped learning different tasks. This way I will be more competitive. When I was working for a 5-star hotel, we were trained to multi-task. This reception is different from the usual because only 1 front desk officer is assigned here. We do all the check-ins, check-outs, reservations and cashiering and we had to do all these with minimal or no errors. During my employment with an SEO, all tasks were instruction- based. To name a few, tasks were writing and proofreading articles, posting articles using wordpress, research, promoting products and youtube uploads. I was also tasked to screen writers. As the executive assistant to a CEO, I schedule appointments for him, meet and deal with colleagues, manage his accounts, facilitate hotel and airline reservations, create presentation materials and correspondences and other tasks he deems necessary. As a Virtual Assistant, I am obliged to communicate well through email and phone that's why proficiency in both my spoken and written English is imperative. I am an enthusiastic worker. I always learn how to work with ease and enjoyment because I believe that when you like what you're doing, you will produce good results. I know mistakes happen and we can always learn from them but with diligence, understanding and concentration on the tasks at hand, mistakes can be avoided. I was trained to provide excellent customer service and through the years, I learned how to use Microsoft Office Programs (Word, Excel, Power Point). I am well-versed in Google docs and sheets, web research and data consolidation.
