As shown on my page. my name is Matilda. I graduated at Rhodes University in South Africa. I majored in economics and legal theory and for my honors I have a BA in Economics. To sum up my work expertise, I worked in USA for two months. It was a student exchange programme and we basically attended to customers (customer service) which I have a certificate I received from the company that hired us (Janus International).
Now I work at a construction company as part of the admin. I handle most of the paperwork in the office. My job encompasses secretarial work and more. For this company, I'm an assistant for departments like accounting and the quantity surveyor. For the accountant, if he needs a collection of up-to-date tax invoices, I manage that and provide what he needs and whenever he needs it. In addition I help prepare the PAYE (which I make the payments) and also prepare the analysis book for him. For the quantity surveyor whenever we are tendering, it is always my responsibility to search for materials needed for the project tender and their prices which are compared with other numerous company's I would have asked for quotations from, from then on the bill of quantities can be prepared.
As a hobby I enjoy reading and writing and now I am an established author. I wrote my first book, The dragon princess (2014) which can be found on amazon. And I aspire to be a well established author and a best selling author.
I joined skillpages to find a job and a new career.
I enjoy writing of what I find interesting and out of the ordinary. I'm passionate about writing things that involve women's rights. And I enjoy writing stories I've created in my mind.
