Curriculem Vitae : Clair Cantrell
P.O Box Address : Box 84250
Availability : Around The Clock
I have been freelancing for the past 10 years on a contractual basis and come from an artistic back round.
I am available around the clock. My philosophy is that the job comes first and time is merely an invention – I’m somewhat of a workaholic.
I have for the last four years, run an independent record label full time (One F Music) based in Gauteng, Johannesburg. On an ad hoc basis also, I have written for several online publications and websites.
My tasks at One F Music were to make sure that a demanding production office ran smoothly, and co-ordination played a big role in my daily tasks, as well as archiving, research and transcription, I’ve been blessed with my writing skills and they have served me well regarding generation of website content and press releases necessary for the artists on the label and from the mouth of the record label. Production is my forte and I work well under pressure. I run a tight ship and have a good understanding of pressure and how to handle it by being super organised. I work from home as a virtual assistant for One F Music still on an ad hoc basis for 4 hours per month to take care of their archiving and collectibles sections – I demand a lot of myself and I am most particular about quality control and delivery of service of the utmost caliber. I am fluent in English and Afrikaans. English is my first language, and I am researching to study various African dialects.
I can bring the following skills to the table:
* Transcription services – from digital audio to text.
* Production and direction of recordings from text to speech.
* Business writing skills for the web / social media.
* Database Management.
* Media co-ordination.
* Writing of product reviews.
* General office administration.
* Internet research.
