HOURLY PROJECTS ONLY, Please! And no time wasters too, please! I work ONLY with clients that have both a professional attitude as well as a prompt payment ability. Hi: Thank you for taking a few moments to glance over my oDesk profile. I possess an excellent command of English (it happens to be my native language!), verifiable accredited U.S. qualifications, authentic Fortune 10/100 work experience, as well as a powerful portfolio of specializations, skills, experience, and capabilities. Although I've passed over 90 oDesk tests and more than 27 Brainbench tests, I regularly add new skills to my portfolio. AREAS OF EXPERTISE: Advanced Project, Program and Portfolio Management (SCPM - Stanford) Business Consulting - Leadership, Management, and Technnological Management of technology Organizational Behavior Organization Design General Management Business Analysis Systems Analysis Marketing: Penetration of new market segments Design of Tests and Examinations - including Psychometric Evaluation Quality Management (CMQ/OE: ASQ Certified Manager of Quality / Organizational Excellence) Quality Engineering (CQE: ASQ Certified Quality Engineer) Software Quality Assurance (CSQE: ASQ Certified software Quality Engineer) CMMI ISO 9001, SPICE, TickIT and other Quality Standards SDLC / Agile Software Development Methodologies Software Technologies and Development Environments Multidisciplinary Training - Individual and Groups GRE and GMAT Examinations Coaching I have a working knowledge of a broad range of software across a wide range of industry segments (general management, international quality systems standards formulation, market penetration, manufacturing, financial services, customer service, training, software development, systems implementation, systems analysis, systems certification and accreditation), together with primary and secondary research capabilities. As far back as 1994, I designed, developed and successfully implemented across several sites, a Refinanced Loan Management System (RLMS) while serving as the joint Management Information Systems Expert and Computer systems Specialist for the SFLCP project funded by the International Fund for Agriculture of the United Nations (UN / IFAD) and the Canadian International Development Agency. During the relatively short period of July 1996 to September 1997, I designed, developed, and successfully implemented what was probably the world's first ISO 9001-compliant Quality Management System that allowed new technology platforms to be added without the need for immediate re-certification. What all this means to you is that you finally have the ability to economically hire someone who is quite comfortable delving into even the smallest details while simultaneously monitoring the "big picture," ensuring you get the most from whatever your assignment requires. Of course, I prefer to work with clients who look forward to taking their companies to the next level in terms of performance, profitability, as well as corporate responsibility. Stay tuned for new skills, technologies and achievements that I will be adding to my portfolio in the very near future. Sincerely, Prasanna L.L.

I am to be able to deliver quality work and service that my employer expects from me. After graduating in the course of BA Psychology in 2004 as a cum laude in the University of the Philippines - Visayas, I worked under telecollections in the housing loans department of a bank where i was honed to communicate sensitive subjects to my clients, the goal of which is to put their housing loan accounts back from the delinquent level. Then I also tried out the hotel industry and worked for 6 months as a front desk associate in a hotel in Boracay. The job not only taught me to multi-task and not lose my grace under pressure while checking-in multiple guests, but it also enhanced my communication skills as I got to meet all kinds of people. My next job was in a call center HR department where i was tasked to process employees for terminations. This took my career to a whole new level when I was tasked to deliver 'bad news' to agents and employees. Overall, I matured as a professional and I aim to continue good work ethics.
I would like to practice good written and verbal communication skills. I'd also like to share and gain new knowledge in various fields. During my college years, I have been trained to write scientific papers and I also had experience making and editing examination questions during my years as a science teacher. My experience as an ERP Associate Administrator in TeleTech Holdings gave me a chance to explore generating reports and translating them into Excel files as well as database management using Oracle, Taleo and SQL. I am confident in my English grammar and sentence construction and am seeking opportunities for creative and technical writing.
I am a freelance writer and specializes in blog and article writing even in content writing or reviews. I am also interested to perform as a virtual or research assistant. I am a Bachelor's degree holder and graduated on top of my class. I was also awarded as a university scholar from my freshmen year until I graduated. I have work experience on various fields such as human resource, education and special education, health and fitness, arts and research. As a result, I have developed a strong sense of workmanship and professionalism.
Over the last 8 years, I have developed relationships with key advertising agencies, brands and companies such as McCann Erickson, Young & Rubicam, Corbis and Jupiter Images that has resulted in a total of about 9 MM in revenue. My core competency lies from inception of an idea to completion and all of the detailed follow up and management of the account and relationship in between. I am seeking opportunities to bring in business and revenue from my wide network of contacts in multiple consumer goods and services industries. I work with the following to get business and market my client's brands, including my own brand: 37Signals CRM, SalesForce, All Microsoft office programs, WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn. My communication skills are also excellent and my writing style or "voice" can range from clever and compelling advertising copy; straight-to-the point, no-nonsense business or marketing strategy and plans; and chatty, full of personality and spunk lifestyle magazine article writing. I can focus on SEO keyword integration easily. Here are some examples: Here are some examples of my editorial and lifestyle type writing: http://www.lacosmopolatina.com/lemons-to-remove-tomato-sauce-stains/ http://www.lacosmopolatina.com/your-blood-prp-the-new-anti-aging-treatment/ http://www.lacosmopolatina.com/sex-for-one-self-love/

New job and growth opportunities thrill me. I'm passionate about learning and enthusiast about exploring the professional world. One of my main career goals is to develop new sets of skills, and become richer as a human being and more flexible, efficient and productive as a professional. My main career goal is to find my talent, the expression of my deepest self in the professional world. :)
Over the last years i have developed a large set of skills in the IT field and the English language. My main focus is on transcriptions but i am also proficient with the MS Office package. I have very fast typing skills and i am eager to prove my skills here on oDesk. Since this is my first time working online i am interested to develop a nice relationship with my client before anything else. Other areas that i have experience in are data entry and web research. As for my availability is concerned i have great communication skills, i am available online most of the time so a fast reply to your queries is what you can expect from me at all times.
I have a 2:1 (hons) History BA from Royal Holloway University of London. This means I have a good understanding of technical language relating to historical issues, politics and foreign policy. I also have strong research skills, and can comfortably research a variety of different subjects for specific tasks. I've recently been working as an article writer for Greenfudge, a European environmental issues website. This has involved keeping abrest of important events relating to the environment. The main areas I wrote about were European Commission Environmental Policy, and specific in depth analysis of environmental problems and initiatives in the Baltic states. This position required research skills, proof reading and publishing through Wordpress alongside writing responsibilities. For two years I worked as a newsletter editor for the political campaign group NO2ID. This required proof reading, the editing of content to meet specific criteria, researching specific information relating to the areas of interest of the campaign group, and the production and formatting of the letter. The newsletter was circulated monthly via email and post to the group's subscribers. I work as a music writer and reviewer for a number of online music journals. This involves writing creatively about music releases and artists, producing content relevant to the aesthetics of various web magazines. Work has had to be produced to a high level of grammatical accuracy, ready for publication. I'm a native English speaker, having been born and raised in London. I currently live and work in Riga as an English language teacher. This has strengthened my understanding of English grammar, and my attention to detail for accurate written and verbal communication. I'm looking to gain further experience in editing, proof reading, and article research and writing. I'm particularly interested in finding new challenges outside of the fields I am already familiar with.
