Spain - Last active: 10/04/2014 - Tests: 5

Good day! I'm Soliel Magana. I'm a graduate of BA European Languages (Spanish Major, German Minor) from the University of the Philippines - Diliman. I have complete command of both the Filipino and English Language. I can also speak and write in Spanish, having written and defended my college thesis in the said language. Aside from these three languages, I can also speak and write in German, although I'm only in an intermediate level. During my stay in college, aside from courses that helped us develop a better understanding of our chosen languages, I had also taken courses in foreign language teaching, translation and business. Taking the business course is quite notable because we had to choose a business and plan how to start it. We had to defend it and make sure that it is as plausible as possible In addition, I was also a member of the only Spanish Organization in the University of the Philippines - Diliman and held the position of VP for Internal Affairs and Membership Committee Head on my first year as member and Special Projects and Events Committee Head on the next. On my first year, I was in charge of creating a harmonious atmosphere among members. This required me to organize events that will help foster camaraderie among members. I was also in charge for the recruitment of new members and the planning of the application process. This aspect developed my skills in socializing with people. On my next year, I had to plan and help make happen all the events of the organization. This included events such as orientation for the freshmen, outreach programs, tutorials, the spanish week and many more. Being a member of an organization and holding the said positions have made me a better person. It harnessed my organizational skills and people skills and it has taught me to manage my time and priorities carefully. It has also taught me to be a team player. As a member of an organization, I learned to grow in order to serve and contribute more. Alongside my experience in an organization, I also worked part time as a content writer. This helped further develop my skills in the English language. I would also like to mention that I have great computer skills, having sufficient knowledge of MS Word and the internet.

To be able to fully-utilize my skills in writing, typing fast - average of 70wpm, research and transcription; enhancing them and learning new ones in the process. To be productive on my available time by being meticulous, organized and responsible in any task given to me. I have ground knowledge about the medical field, giving me an edge on it. Ever since I can remember, I've aspired to be a medical student, to follow the footsteps of my mother- this, however, is placed on hold due to family crisis. My thirst for knowledge still continues, and I'm sure I can learn a lot through here, and earn in the process. Thank you. :)

Certified Professional Secretary

United States - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 16 - Portfolio: 1

Bad news: I have only one oDesk job completed to date. Good news: You could be the one to change that. Better news: If you hire me anyway, you won't be disappointed. I offer excellent typing, transcription, proofreading, and English language skills. I will complete your assignments per your instructions and in a timely manner. I am honest, efficient, and eager to assist you in meeting your goals. Becoming a teacher was always my dream job from the time I started first grade. I taught myself to type when I was about 12 years old. One week after high school graduation, I was hired as a part-time secretary in an architectural firm. I had no experience whatsoever, but I could type quickly, and I could spell accurately. Upon my introduction to the magical world of word processing and computers, I quickly realized I no longer had the desire to teach. I worked at that firm full-time from the first day for the next 13 years. I have been in the administrative support/office management field for 35+ years now. The majority of my computer knowledge comes from being self-taught. I may not know how to write code, but I still think of myself as a 'computer nerd.'
