Florissa W. Benolerao – CSR and Administration
I am a professional with over 4 years of experience in Virtual Assistance. I started as a researcher and lead Generator and eventually became an Advertising Manager and Photo editor. I worked as a content writer and Admin Assistant. Prior to being a Virtual Assistant, I honed my skills working in the BPO industry, teaching and retail. I have developed my knowledge and skills in sales and customer service as well.
I had some skills training in the past that contributed to what I am now as a person and as a professional. I am confident that I will be able to deliver what my client needs as long as it fits my skills and talent. What I also love about being a virtual assistant is that I get to learn new skills that I thought would never interest me or I would never be able to carry through – like content writing and advertising. I have always been an artist by heart in one way or another, but I never thought I’d be able to apply it in a job. When one of my clients was looking for a content writer and needed someone with Canva experience, I was hesitant at first as I had no idea what Canva was! But he was very patient with me and gave me training and loads of help. I was able to learn something new and I was so excited working on the project since it made me extract the creative juice that I thought I’d never use at work. From then on, I realised that we can do whatever we desire as long as we work hard to achieve it.
I initially just wanted to try working as a Virtual Assistant out of curiosity. I didn’t have the knowledge back then on what type of job a virtual assistant could do, but since I started my first role in this industry, I found that it’s more convenient for me and my lifestyle. Most of all, I love how flexible the hours can be if you do the home-based jobs. Workwise, I could say I’m a fast learner and I have the drive to take on any challenge.
I am seeking to work full time or part-time in a home-based environment since I love to travel and do photography. Being able to take your work anywhere you go is more favourable for me.
During my free time, I read all sorts of books, depending on my mood. I also love watching YouTube vlogs since I am also into video editing and have been producing my own vlog as well.
This is me… hope you like it short and sweet. Thank you. 🙂
