Online Typist/Proofreader/Data Entry
Last active: 1 month ago
I'd like to begin by highlighting my skills. I consider myself to be very proficient in the use of each of the Microsoft Office programs (i.e., Word, Excel, PowerPoint). I have been working with each of these programs for over 10 years and my typing speed is 60 wpm. While completing each of my jobs over the years, these programs have always been used in depth. As a native English speaker, I also feel as though the fact that I am a teacher in Mexico to primary school students at a private bi-lingual school, who are just learning English as a second language, should also be highlighted. This has assisted me in perfecting my ability to proofread documents for English grammar and spelling.
While living abroad, I would still like to work online to earn a second income. After having obtained my Masters in Business Management from Baruch College in NYC in 2007 and after having managed various small to mid-sized law firms from 2000-2010, I feel as though I would be a great addition to your online support team. While working for many of these firms, my tasks frequently included entering pdf contracts into Microsoft Word to later be edited for content by the attorneys. Another frequent task of mine was to type voluminous legal documents into word in an effort to create electronic copies to later be used and edited by the attorneys as per the occasion. The most recent use I've had for PowerPoint has been to create teaching plans which I project up in my classroom as a teaching aid here in Mexico. It allows my students to not only listen to the mini-lesson, but also to read along as we progress through the grammar lesson.
I believe that my many years of work in both the legal field as well as the educational field, can demonstrate my attention to detail as well as my hard working attitude. I am an efficient worker who would only improve with time. For this reason, I ask to be considered for a long-term project. While I would accept any type of assignment, small or large, short or long, my objective is to move into a permanent position with your company so that I might be able to demonstrate my commitment to your projects.
