    Virtual Assistant / Live Chat Support/Researcher/Recruiter/Team Leader

    Philippines - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 18 - Portfolio: 12

    Studying in 9.0 NINER IELTS Review Center honed my written and spoken English. I can type 85 words/minute, spelling and good grammar are my strong points. I have good mastery of MS Office such as Word, Powerpoint, Publisher and Excel. Researching on different search engines for vital information related to the topic at hand is an indispensable skill I have developed over the years. Aside from Researching, I am also focused on Project Management and oDesk Recruiting. Part of being a Project Manager and Recruiter is to post jobs and to hunt people that will suit a specific job description. As a recruitment officer, I had been trained to search a needle in a haystack by employing various tests and conducting interviews to have a clear picture of an applicant. Moreover, staffing and delegating someone who is a hundred miles from my office is something unusual to do. And as such, this job had trained me to be the most careful and mistake-free Hiring Officer.

    Experienced Writer With An Eye For Detail

    Jamaica - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 3

    I am a Writer with extensive experience in editing, proofreading and event-planning; currently doing VA work and loving it. Thanks to some of my clients, I have gotten quite good at Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Not only can I create a high quality, SEO-friendly article, I can also optimize your site/blog for Google's search engine. I have gotten quite good on both and I am a five star oDesker because I give nothing less than 100%. I also have extensive training in creative writing, and over fifteen (15) years experience editing and proofreading using my knowledge of AP and MLA writing styles, among others. I should also point out that I do have over 100 hours on oDesk already. However, because most of my work is "fixed price" instead of hourly, my hours are not showing in my profile. I have used programs such as the complete Microsoft Office Suite, Lotus Notes, QuarkXPress, Adobe InDesign, Dreamweaver, PeopleSoft, to name a few, on both the Windows and Mac platforms. I am also on Skype, Google Hangout, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. I spent over ten (10) years empowering individuals and businesses in the productive use of the Internet and social media to attract clients and market oneself; in customer service, in time-management and in personal development. I love to plan events and also counsel young people in personal growth and development. I am a published author who specializes in fiction and non-fiction writing. I am very detail-oriented, organized, and hard-working. I will spend day and night completing a project in order to meet the deadline. I do not believe in excuses. But don't take my word for it.
