Hi! I am new to this community. I worked with Upwork about ten years ago. I am a Program Manager, but I am on UpWork to find additional work. My interests are in writing and editing, transcription, executive assistant and data entry work. I would also be interested in Project or Program Management work but since I currently hold this position, I am looking for supplemental work that is more independent and at a slower pace.

1. I have worked in a very *broad* range of industries.  I started a band, I ended up with the Dept. of Justice (paralegal specialist) for 8 years.  I have been part of a James Beard nominated bar team (2014).  I did supply chain management for Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine for a time.  I intervened for the House Policy Committee.  I was most recently lead sales at a very unique boutique in Little Rock.  And I have an MBA with a focus in Data Analytics.

 

2. I hope that someone can help lead me into my more desired role of interfacing between sales and marketing and the programmers, sysadmins, and otherwise.

 

3. Despite being extremely awkward in social relationships, I shine when I work.  I look forward to learning knew things as well as teaching new things, problem solving, being the jack of all trades.  What inspires me most is to see the look in people's eyes where they realize I've helped them.  It's what gets me out of bed in the morning.

Hello everyone, I'm Chris, a graphic designer based in Preston, United Kingdom. 

The work I've been creating for the past few years has been more general design work, leaflets, brochures, business cards and signage. 

I'm looking for design work to take my freelance journey full time and to learn from successful designers who have done just that. 

I hope we cross paths again soon.

Dear Upwork Members and Andrea,

 

My name is Vita, actually, I am an office employee as administrative staff and no longer work. My location is in North Jakarta - Indonesia. 

 

I am interested and want to learn more from Upwork members, so that I can become a supporter of knowledge in the field of creativity related to design projects

 

I like making a clips from photos or created video or simple logo, and this inspiration also supports me to be more productive and earn income, as well as working from home. Indeed, I only use a laptop and the equipment is limited, but maybe I can try my artistic skills. Because of that, I dared to join and do not rule out the possibility that I can succeed and progress in the future.
