I am no longer actively searching for work on oDesk. They have made significant changes which resulted in my getting a very poor Job Success score. The way their algorithms work, I am punished for offering a money back guarantee - no questions asked. I am happily accepting invitations to interview. I will continue to offer my money back guarantee - no questions asked, and I can only hope my score doesn't fall any further. You will find my varied work and educational experiences are beneficial when I research and write on a number of interesting topics. The subjects in which I have considerable expertise include education, reading, computer science and information technology as well as general humanities, literature, and the arts. I enjoy adding to my knowledge and learning more as I complete assignments. I have a great deal of experience in research as well as editing and proofreading. I am familiar with all the major citation formats. I look forward to working with you.

Writer for Hire, Cover Artist

United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 3

I have over twenty years professional experience in the fields of technical writing and sales/marketing, but have dropped out of the regular work force to pursue writing as a full time occupation. I have been creating works of fiction since my pre-teen years in a wide range of genres that include romance, erotica, paranormal, fantasy and thrillers. All contracts accepted are guaranteed to be 100% original content. Editing is completed in a timely manner. I do not subcontract work to others. I prefer not to post a public portfolio of written work, but will gladly provide a sample that is most relevant to your needs when applying for jobs or responding to invitations to interview. I have recently begun doing cover work for e-books. Samples can be found in my portfolio if you are looking for a cover artist.

Philip Schawillie

Experienced Online Content Writer and Editor

United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 3

I began writing professionally in 2000 by applying 11 years of IT experience to developing documentation and training for enterprise-level hardware and software. I've used tools such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Visio; Adobe Acrobat, FrameMaker, and RoboHelp; and specialized applications such as SnagIt. Since 2010, I've diversified my writing to build an online portfolio in technology, politics, and sports that has accumulated over half a million unique reads. This portfolio doesn't reflect my writing's diversity. I've written product descriptions for a major auction site as well as online content on topics such as travel, health, personal finance, safety, cars, and music. I've always submitted this work through a client's CMS, sometimes importing a file I created with Microsoft Word. As a side benefit, fixing CMS formatting issues has improved my ability to code and troubleshoot HTML. I look forward to using the skills I've developed in research and written communication to help your business develop and refine its online presence.
