To put my IT skills in good use, help people monitor and optimize the use of their servers, and help other administrators out there troubleshoot any problems they might have, where I might be able to help. I have gained some experience in managing propper workflow for companies, how the procedures and process should be, I can lend a good hand in this as well.
I am a writer, researcher, and entrepreneur hacking the future of business. I write dense reports for entrepreneurs and executives who want to disrupt traditional industries and gain key insights to the shifts of culture and business. I've spent the last decade studying the movements and transformation of ideas, culture, and society. What is "modern business design"? Most companies have responded to the radical cultural and economic shifts of the last decade by getting a Facebook page or a corporate Twitter account. At a growing rate, they're realizing this isn't enough. Their sales are down or flat, their talent acquisition and (especially) retention is low, and often their industry as a whole is suffering. They know they have to change something, but they can't put their finger on it. And they're certainly not willing to bet their company on it. With a decade of research and experience, I'm helping these companies go back to the drawing board, reconsider their overall business goals and structure, and create actionable adjustments to set the course of their company on the upstream in their market. It's not operations consulting, business coaching, or social media strategy. It's business design--based on a modern value-system, a modern mindset, and a modern global economy. I've been involved in a variety of projects across multiple industries. While my main work is currently focused on modern business design, I have the skills, experience, and resources to effectively help entrepreneurs and companies with the following: Writing, Proofreading, Editing, Market Research, Marketing Strategy, Social media strategy, startup consulting, corporate culture initiatives, innovation workshops, strategic planning, process improvement, Technology strategy consulting and CIO services, and WAN (wide area network) planning and consulting. While these may seem quite diverse, I've had hands-on experience and demonstrable results with each as a graduate student, teacher, a fortune 5000 employee, and an entrepreneur. For those looking for specific interests and passions, here are some of mine: entrepreneurship, startup communities, futurist, technology, alternative health, homeopathy/oriental medicine, raw food, spirituality, philosophy, theology, nature, positive parenting (my daughter is currently 3), social change, politics of business & enterprise, economics, and education.
I'm happily and gainfully employed but looking for new opportunities to utilize my talents. As the Chief of Staff to the President of my current organization, I have a keen and intimate understanding of the intricacies of advising and coaching a leader and taking that person to new heights. You will appreciate my approach, encouragement and expertise. I know how to push in a way you will find invigorating. With a background in communications, I know how to ensure your vision and goals are effectively expressed and executed. For these types of positions, either you have it or you don’t. I have what it takes to keep you on task and up your game. I had the amazing opportunity to work with Dr. Everett M. Rogers the pioneer of the Diffusion of Innovations. Our research emphasis was on high tech spin off companies. As a team player, I am committed to taking you and your organization to the next level. I would welcome the opportunity to work with you. I recognize that I am new to Odesk and you may not want to take the time or risk. Trust me, I’m your gal! I'd be happy to do a trial period with you to demonstrate my talent and give you my word that you won't be disappointed. My Best!
My career goal is just simple, to work for your company with all the best that I can be. I have a couple of skills up on my sleeve and I know that if your company hires me I can prove to be capable, efficient and effective in any work that has been given to me and show the abilites that I have acquired. I worked in call centers and I can say that I made an impact to my superiors and proved that I am worthy in doing my job and provide them more than what they expected. I worked in Teleperformance that became my first job after I graduated. Luckily that was the first company that I applied to and not to brag but I got hired in the first try in the interview. I was so excited to working as a call center agent and to add to my luck is I got a Technical Support position for VERIZON that is related to my course. I stayed for a year and a couple of months in Teleperformance and I went home to our province to apply for a job there since it is much convenient for me because the site is located near my hometown. I got hired as a Tehcnical Support and as a Customer Service Representative since our scope also has Sales for INTUIT TURBOTAX and after a year I got promoted to a Level 2 Support. The first work at home job I got was with Fortress Holdings. We handled order and refund processing through phone support. It was a great experience that made me want to work at home even more. The second job I got is with Thumbtack. Thumbtack is a website where service professionals search for customers in offering their services. We handle email support, answering every clients' queries and problems with the website. Now I am just waiting for your company to hire me so that I can again serve and to help the company reach their goal and provide them the service and the employee that they are looking for. You won't regret hiring me and I assure you that I will exceed your expectations.
