Exceptional Customer Service Representative

United States - Last active: 10 hours ago - Tests: 5

I would like to expand my knowledge and skills on data entry, customer service and support, and office skills as well as other fields. But I excel in office skills and a personal or virtual assistant is definitely my profession of choice. I am a full-time, online student and maintain a 4.0 GPA in my studies. I am choosing to try to work from home because I have a one year old son and I would like to spend time with him more, not to mention the price of childcare is outrageous. I would love to learn new things and broaden my knowledge of subjects I don't know. Since education and learning is so important to me, I don't want to stop at school. I would love to learn about anything and everything.
