In order to confirm my skills I have completed a Diploma in Publishing (Professional Book Editing, Proofreading & Publishing). I am also the author of 'eBay the easy way - a Mum's guide to hassle-free casual selling on eBay'.
My key strengths include:
Excellent written and verbal communication skills acquired via study and extensive customer service experience.
High level of computer skills, including MS Excel, Word, Outlook, Adobe Acrobat. I am also able to adapt quickly to new software.
More than 15 years experience in customer service both in face-to-face and via the phone.
Consistent time management skills, completing all projects within deadline.
Honesty and integrity shown at all times, resulting in taking on increased responsibilities throughout my career.
I received High Distinction (90%+) grades in my Diploma; and I have been editing and proofreading as part of my job for various employers for over 15 years.
I was educated in the UK and I can also proofread US and Australian English. As a native English speaker I would expect that I could provide a fast and efficient completion of any assignment.
I have received nothing but positive feedback for my recent freelance...
