In the last 12 years, I have also been engaged in several virtual assistant tasks in my line of work. This includes administrative tasks such as making the minutes of our meetings and transcribing them, typing documentation reports, doing web research and data-entry, as well as data-mining related info from the Internet and putting it on a website, spreadsheet or a word document file. I am also doing constant research using the Internet for different topics, like in my line of work or in other topics too. I have done advertisement postings in the web, e-mail and social media for marketing several of my businesses using catchy phrases and subject lines. I am a fast learner and very willing to be trained for new skills not included above as required for your task at hand.
Ever since my elementary schooling days, up to high school and college (about 15 years of schooling), I have been using and learning the English language. In my corporate experience of 9 years, English was the major language used as I am often employed with companies that have global operations. The people that I coordinate with those companies use English as the major language whether it is via email or voice/video calls.
I have been blogging and creating web content for a few times to share my knowledge about something that I've read, watched or felt. For technical writing, I am constantly doing that in my most recent employment where we document the steps that are needed to do a certain technical procedure (such as how to configure the network devices with the right sequence to achieve the goal for that activity).
I have 2 years of experience with Sales as a Life Insurance and Mutual Fund Investment Agent of Sun Life of Canada. I market through online ads, warm market, cold market, public and office booths and then I set the appointments to those who are interested. I explain the insurance and/or investment products whether via physical slides or using a laptop computer. I make them realize that it is a need and I explain the consequence if they would delay the decision of getting one. I close sales and do after sales support to my clients as well.
I have used Facebook Marketplace a few times and have sold an unused gadget of mine. I have used online classified ads in the past where I resell an item that I bought from friends for a profit.
I have learned the basics of Python from watching instructional videos. I have also tried coding basic activities (some college exercises like palindrome, number of occurrences of certain character, etc.) to use what that I've learned.
I have been doing Personal Financial Management with myself ever since I started getting a job in 2006. My discipline did turn out great so far, I have an emergency fund, I currently have money saved that can cover my basic needs for 3 years. I have life insurance, health insurance and different investments that make money for me. For investment research, I do my own due diligence on the financial instruments that I invest in. I research to see if the company or projects has growth in the future and have the potential to be mass adopted in the coming years.
I have done Technical support as a Network Security Engineer for 9 years. Some of the support I have received thru calls and some of it are from emails and ticketing systems. I have put the specific skillsets on my main profile.
