I have spent the last five years working as a full-time general transcriber. Prior to being a full-fledged transcriber, I had a lucrative career in the broadcast industry, working for the top TV station here in the Philippines. I've only had two jobs after graduating with a degree in Broadcast Communication from the country's premiere university, the University of the Philippines in Diliman, but these assignments I had long term, which vouches for how committed and loyal I am to my craft. Transcribing has afforded me the chance to learn about various industries and the way of life and culture of Americans, having transcribed interviews with topics ranging from something as trivial and everyday as air freshener to highly specialized instruments used in biotechnology. In turn, these transcriptions have aided in product development for various companies in a country several thousand miles from where I am, which never ceases to amaze me. I have five years worth of transcribing experience tucked under my belt. I am computer savvy and well versed in Microsoft Office. I may not be a native English speaker, but I have great command of the English language, both written and verbal. I am driven, committed and dedicated to provide expeditious quality output, and willing and eager to help you out with all your transcribing needs. I guess the stain on my perfectly starched and pressed profile is I am an oDesk newbie. However, weren't we all at one point? To get to the top of the ladder, one has to take that initial step up the first rung. So here's to hoping you'll take a chance on me as I end with a modified version of Carly Rae Jepsen's chart-topping song: "Hey, you just met me And this may be crazy But here's my profile So call me, maybe?"

Over the past seven years, I was able to acquire, develop and enhance various exceptional skills including those that are critical to the BPO industry which includes end-to-end customer service operation, comprehensive back-office process development and human resources administration. Moreover, I have been immersed in the practice of law by virtue of my education which emphasized concentration on various legal subjects. Before pursuing a career in the private sector, I was part of the Legislative and Legal Teams of two (2) Philippine Senators - the Honorable Miriam Defensor-Santiago and former Senate President Franklin M. Drilon - for a couple of years. As a freelance paralegal, I also experienced representing litigants before quasi-judicial bodies such as the National Labor Relations Commission (Philippine Labor Law), Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board (Real Estate Law) and the Office of the President (Appellate process). My core competency lies in complete delivery of projects, events management, legal research and transcription, data entry, general transcription and administrative functions such as those of a virtual assistant. Presently, I am seeking opportunities to help individuals and organizations to increase productivity and add value to their respective ventures.
