    Aspiring Freelancer

    United States - Last active: 12/22/2014 - Tests: 2

    Hey everyone! I am a recent graduate (May 2014) from the University of Illinois at Chicago with a Finance. I have a passion for travel which led me to oDesk as I was researching becoming location independent, my ultimate career/life goal. My first semester of my senior year I was brought on to intern at a local start up (PhoenixVenturz) in which I turned Co-Founder and launched was created to be a matching service between USA Manufacturers of capital equipment with foreign buyers. Working at a start up provided me with an amazing opportunity to be exposed to all of the aspects of starting and running a business. I was involved in Sales, Marketing, Business Development, Product Development, and any other item that needed to be addressed. It was exciting learning something new, applying it, and directly impacting the company. A lot of time and effort, including competing in the Chicago Lean Start Up Challenge 2014, went into trying to make a success. But ultimately it has been something that has been put on hold due to unforeseen circumstances. Prior to PhoenixVenturz, I had an internship in London U.K. This has become one of the most valuable learning experiences I have had to date. I worked for a non-profit football academy called Footsteps Trust. At Footsteps I completed an analysis on the correlation between attendance, ethnicity, etc with grades achieved. I also completed several Marketing projects in order to promote the organization at industry events. I was also able to assist in creating the next fiscal year budget and sit in on executive meetings discussing business strategy. My biggest takeaway from this experience was the importance of multicultural teams with the world growing smaller by the day. Having the ability to not only communicate with someone from a different country but to relate has a tremendous impact on the quality of work produced. Besides travel, my other passions include maintaining a healthy lifestyle, being a sports fan (Cubs), music festivals, and keeping up with technology news. I believe I have what it takes to be a freelancer because I know how to get things done and am willing to learn. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! Cheers, Carlos Coronado
