Virtual Assistant

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 4

I enjoy doing daily tasks and one-off projects to lighten the load for professionals that cannot worry about the details. I am a great candidate for everything from managing email accounts that seem out of control, recording voice prompts, editing educational curriculum, managing WordPress accounts, and writing articles, to creating and formatting presentations and business forms and documents. I really like to call myself the Jill of all trades and strive to make all things transparent for my clients. I am also a homeschooling mother, and am looking for contracts that will continue to enable me to indulge in this passion. I am excited to explore opportunities with new clients.

Multifaceted Virtual Assistant. Business support b...

Sweden - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 17 - Portfolio: 4

My previous line of work led to the start of a VA business. My goal is to work with what I like and keep up the trend of various tasks. The rate described is my lowest rate, which I usuallay apply because I sometimes like to do assignments to keep my skills at a recent level, then that rate apply. On the other hand could other assigments require a higher rate. My VA role is one of the multi skilled, or multifaceted as I use for marketing, since I've learned a lot of different skills during the positions I held. I'm very service minded, as I started out as a cashier and office girl and had the privilege to work with people with genuine feeling for service. I find it likable and I also think it makes sense to keep a service minded attitude towards customers. If you see someone without a smile - give them one of yours kind of recaps what service is about. Besides the service offered in the line of work, that is. Later on I've for several years each, held positions as sales secretary, school secretary, administrative consultant, application specialist and web/system developer. In addition to work I've been studying sociology, psychology and computer science at academic level. Still today I feel at home in almost any constellation of work, I like to do repetitive tasks from time to time, and challenging tasks from time to time. Work satisfaction is important to me and it means delivering good results, to be of benefit to the receiver. For myself the help and learn part goes a long way. One other thing to mention is that I learned to type at early age. That skill has been both useful and fun during the years. Besides skills in service and typing I'm interested in languages, both human and computer. Where human language is concerned I write with good imagination, do my research and have a very good vocabulary. Where computers are concerned I like to do life easier for end users and I also focus on usability. Where both languages are involved I also like to enhance the experience for the reader/user. Oh, I nearly forgot (if yo're still reading this short essay that is), I also do some graphic designs from time to time. Web design, Logo designs, Business Cards, Newsletter, formatting in Word, layouts in PowerPoint and so on! We need beautiful things! Cheers!
