    Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support branch

    Sweden - Last active: 16 days ago - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 4

    My previous line of work led to the start of a VA business. My goal is to work with what I like and keep up the trend of various tasks. The rate described is my lowest rate, which I usually apply because I sometimes like to do assignments to keep my skills at a recent level, and then that rate apply. On the other hand could other duties require a higher rate. My VA role is one of the multi-skilled, or multifaceted as I use for marketing since I've learned a lot of different skills during the positions I held. I'm very service minded, as I started out as a cashier and office girl and had the privilege to work with people with genuine feeling for service. I find it likable and I also think it makes sense to keep a service minded attitude towards customers. If you see someone without a smile - give them one of your kind of recaps what service is. Additionally to the service offered in the line of work, that is. Later on I've for several years each, held positions as sales secretary, school secretary, administrative consultant, application specialist and web/system developer. Besides having extensive work experience, the studying of sociology, psychology and computer science at an academic level constitutes useful knowledge. Still today I feel at home in almost any constellation of work, I like to do repetitive tasks from time to time, and challenging tasks from time to time. Work satisfaction is important to me, and it means delivering good results, to be of benefit to the receiver. For myself the help and learn part goes a long way. One other thing to mention is that I learned to type at an early age. That skill has been both useful and fun during the years. Besides skills in service and typing, I'm interested in languages, both human and computer. Regarding human language, I write with a fine imagination, do my research and have a splendid vocabulary. Regarding computers, I like to make life easier for end users, and I also focus on usability. Regarding both languages, I also like to enhance the experience for the reader/user. Oh, I nearly forgot (if you're still reading this short essay that is), I also do some graphic designs from time to time. Web design, Logo designs, Business Cards, Newsletter, formatting in Word, layouts in PowerPoint and so on! We need beautiful things! Cheers!

    Philippines - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 16 - Portfolio: 4

    When I was studying, I'd been the class President in our class for the last two semesters~ I learned how to be a leader, a team player and a follower. I learned a lot from my Computer Science degree such as C++, Visual Basic, Oracle, Cisco, Solaris, HTML, and Java programming Languages : but still I want to learn more.. For HTML, we were asked to create a website using Notepad with about 15 pages having links, video and audio. With Visual Basic, we also created (our team) an inventory system and MS access as our repository. During our System Development project, I was assigned to be for Coding team and I also assisted with analyzing what do we needed and not needed for our system. So our team was assigned to connect NETBEANS + ORACLE , and oracle serve as our repository. I also experienced to do a system all by myself using Netbeans with MS ACCESS during my On the job Training. But I am still developing it, and I am still seeking more experience to gain more knowledge so I will finish developing this program. I never want to dissatisfied my client, since I believe that they deserve more than what they paid for. I enjoy learning new things Jo-An V.

    Being a Virtual Customer Care Assistant is my career choice. I enjoy the work, because I enjoy people. It makes me happy to make an unhappy caller happy again at the end of a call. They feel better, I feel good, and that makes my employer look good. People are basically very kind. When they call in angry, they want a solution to their problem. I aim to be that solution.

    Virtual Assistant / Admin Assistant / Wordpress / Data Entry

    Philippines - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 5

    Hello there! My name is Joan and I’m a 5-Star, top-rated professional assistant with happy clients from all over the world. It’s true – check my profile! Most of the people I work with are from either the USA or Australia. I’ve completed nearly 3,000 hours on Odesk and during that time I have come to appreciate the importance of meeting deadlines and working to different time zones. Believe it or not, I actually graduated university with an engineering degree but I decided that industry wasn’t for me. So, I spent a decade refining my skills as a research editor at a publishing company. I now use that expertise to deliver professional administrative duties for my clients, including: • Website promotion (I manage social media accounts, perform basic SEO, App Store optimization and I’m pretty good with Wordpress) • Article Writing (I can blog, write technical essays and pretty much anything else) • Editing (I’ve had a decade of experience proofreading and photo editing and laying out) • Basic Accounting (organizing receipts and so on) • Internet research (compiling customer lists, prospecting, many other things) • Data Entry (I can populate spread sheets, type PDFs into MS Word, etc) • Perform Online Translations of data (Google translate and others) •Transcription (if you voice record a memo or a book, I can type it in Word for you) If there’s some kind of administrative duty that needs doing, chances are I’m the candidate that can complete the task for you. Have you heard the old saying “pay peanuts, get monkeys”? Well, as my previous and current clients would attest, I’m no slouch. I’m an expert admin assistant and I can add a lot of value to your company. Hire me for your next admin role and I won’t let you down. Promise!
