Getting the most out of your ProZ.com profileMay 15

Thank you so much Maria Florencia, this was a great session. I was lucky enough to have you examine my profile and tell me how I could improve it. I have learned about many details and points I wasn't aware of. Some I did know I should complete but procrastinated. So you definitely encouraged me to go and do something about it. Simple, informative and fun!
