    transcription, customer service, writing

    Philippines - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 8

    I love the English language and have always been drawn to jobs that require its usage. In college, my feature articles figured in the local paper and I even won an editorial-article-writing contest. I've also worked as a radio DJ for 4 years total. Other than my DJ job at the station, it was my duty to collect news daily and transcribe them for broadcast. I have also worked as a customer service representative at a call center for almost 4 years. Communicating well with our American clients over the phone was key. Customers called in regarding their bill,to complain,to upgrade services, and to ask for technical support. I've learned to be ready for whatever issue the customer had and resolve it within the call especially when I was promoted to the escalation desk. I am now a new mother of a beautiful son. I currently have a job as an office clerk at a local cable company. I'd really love to work from home and be with my baby as much as possible while earning significantly more than I am now. I'm very much willing to learn and to work very hard to attain my goal to provide for my son while being home with him. Thank you for reading.

    Professionally Fast Transcription Services

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 2

    I am here to offer you my expert services as a transcriber. I have been a transcriptionist for almost four years on several different projects as well as with a few people for long-term work. I've worked on books, webinars, podcasts, radio shows, interviews, conferences; a little bit of everything, both general and medical. You can see from my feedback how happy my past clients are with my deliverables. Rates are based on number of speakers, quality of audio, and turnaround time. Prices are fair, because you certainly get what you pay for in this industry. You require quality, professional, quickly delivered documents that require no editing and are public-facing ready. That is exactly what I can provide for you. Also, please note that the hourly rate listed is for an hour of transcribed audio, NOT an hourly rate I charge for transcribing. You're paying for a completed product, not how long it takes to get it completed. My turn-around time is fast; usually 48 hours or less, depending on the length of the audio. I can provide verbatim documents or those with ready-to-read edits. I do not use automated software as I do not believe it returns a quality product. Please contact me today for a quote! Thanks, Sarah Hicks
