    Writer Extraordinaire!

    United States - Last active: 08/26/2011 - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

    I currently hold a Bachelor of Arts in English with plans to further my education in the future. I would love to actually make a career out of the skills and talents I garnered while in school. I have spent the last four years learning and polishing my writing and editing skills as well as learning how to make a document logically cohesive. My minor in philosophy provided this skill and I think it gives me an edge over other possible hires. I also have 2 1/2 years of experience working at a reference library so I am familiar with databases and know how to navigate them with ease. I plan to take a stab at making this a career, so, I see each assignment I complete here to be a building block of that career. If one of them is bad, then it cannot be built upon. Therefore, I view each and every project I am a part of as if my own reputation and future projects were on the line.
