Innovative professional with progressive experience in diverse education, learning & development arenas with demonstrated initiative, creativity and success. A proactive leader/manager with experience in global environments. Expertise in identifying training needs, providing solutions through blended e-Learning, instructor led, consulting, facilitating, coaching and measuring training effectiveness for multiple locations worldwide. Highly skilled in program pricing strategies, competitor and market analysis, legal compliance, staffing, purchasing and vendor relations, department re-organization, new product roll out, and targeted learning.
I have spent the last 10 years in the Online Education space and love it. I started at the help desk where I worked all day with strictly end-users who needed both product support and technical support. I then moved into high level teams where I became familiar with system architecture, software as a service, web-based application development and support. I have trained and developed training materials as well as knowledgebase articles related to various problems and issues found in the software I worked with.
Although I am fairly new to oDesk I have managed to gain some great feedback from a few odd jobs. I am very eager to find something more long-term and fulfilling. I believe I have a fun personality and a "can-do" attitude! I look at life with the glass half full, waiting for me fill it the rest of the way. I would love the opportunity to prove myself to you. Here on oDesk, I have done various transcriptionist positions,e-mail response handling, data-entry, and virtual/administrative assistant positions. I have worked as a medical transcriptionist part time over the past few years as well. This job has taught me the importance of doing a fast and accurate job, as well as keeping it confidential. I have also worked as a receptionist and understand the importance of courteous customer service. I am a warm person and enjoy interacting with others with strong multi-task skills. I am fluent in English; it is my native tongue. I speak with an American accent, with little to no regional dialect. I am familiar with writing on an academic level as well as professional. This is easily reflected through my oDesk test scores. I also have a strong interest in other languages and am able to communicate in Spanish. I am also currently learning Chinese Mandarin and am able to communicate with beginner Mandarin. I am respectful of other cultures and different beliefs. I keep an open-mind to new ideas. I also study astrology (at home) and use it for divination. I can provide astrological readings, tarot readings, and gypsy readings. Gypsy readings are by far my favorite, as I feel they are more accurate.
I am a new freelance writer getting my degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing. I am currently working on my own novel and have experience with blogging. Any writing job that needs to get done I can do it.
I hold an MBA from Frostburg State University. I have many skills including data entry, Blackboard course management, Microsoft Office experience, and tutoring various classes. I can edit and review books and videos. I have a theater background and am interested in doing voice over work. I am seeking to gain experience in many areas. Let me work for you.
Experience working within a professional, fast paced setting at a reputable University for five years has prepared me for any challenges that may come my way. I served as an administrative assistant in a research facility. Time management, compassion for my work, and organization are my greatest strengths as an employee. I also pride myself on being a leader amongst my peers and being a role model. My ability and adaptability to working with a multitude of different personalities within the work environment is a prominent trait of mine. I handle conflict and misunderstandings gracefully. I am proficient in technological skills such as using Microsoft Office, professional communication methods, and various machinery. I have a typing level proficiency of 49 WPM. I am able to meet deadlines and keep a steady workflow. I currently only do per diem work and do not have full time employment, therefore I am very available.
