Add teacher names from school websites to school contact information in Excel spreadsheet that we provide you. The full description of the job and steps to follow are in the attached Word document and below. We think a short skype call to go over all this before you start the work would be very helpful. Task Process: 1. Open Excel spreadsheet, “Principal Contact information for SY 15-16.xlsx.” 2. Look up first school name in spreadsheet in column D “School Name”: Mc Laurin Elementary School. 3. In column F, “Max Grade,” verify that the highest grade at the school is not higher than 8. If it is higher than 8 skip that school and move on to the next school. 4. Find the website for the school by typing the school name, town, and “MS” into Google Chrome. Look down the search results to find the best link. Make sure you have the right school in the right town – many schools in the same state or different states have the same or similar name. 5. Find the list of teacher names for that school. The correct page for McLaurin Elementary School in Natchez MS is: http://www.natchezschools.org/index.php/schools/gilmer-mclaurin-elementary-school/faculty-and-staff/. Many schools do not list teacher names on their public website. If you can’t find the list of teacher names for the school quickly, move on to the next school. 6. If you found the list of teacher names, in the spreadsheet, insert a line under the one with the school name. 7. Add a teacher name, for Grade 5 or 8 only, from the school website to the spreadsheet in column G, “Teacher name.” 8. Continue adding teacher names until you have copied all Grade 5 and 8 teacher names to the spreadsheet. 9. In the spreadsheet, copy the following school information into the new lines you’ve added for the teachers at the school: Column B District Name Column D School Name Column J Address Column K City Column L State Column M Zip 10. Begin again with the next school name in the spreadsheet. Milestones 1) Review the instructions # 1 – 9 above. 2) Have skype call with JogNog to go over job and ask any questions for clarification. 3) Send Excel spreadsheet back to JogNog with 3 schools as sample of work. 4) JogNog review of Excel spreadsheet after adding 20 schools’ teacher names. 5) Delivery of complete list and sign-off of all requirements completed satisfactorily.

We need to scrape 400 data points each week off of Google search for a test project for our sales team. We require someone who can take direction easily, do the job accurately and add the information they find in a google doc each day. This should take approximately 15-20 hours per week. We will test the campaign for one week at a time - if it proves successful, we will ramp up the campaign and make it an ongoing job, with full time pay. *You MUST have data mining experience because we need speed and efficiency! **Your English must be very good so you can understand our directions. Thanks, Brian

Dear Developers in Phnom Penh, An interesting approach for the requirements described below could be: Screen Scraping and GUI Automation: Inbound (Data reading): Screen or/and Web-Scrapping Processing Outbound (Data entry): GUI Automation (to control mouse and keyboard moves based on recorded templates) Reference example: https://github.com/UiPath/SDK/wiki/What-is-screen-scraping-and-gui-automation I'm looking for an innovative, creative and motivated Software Developer to support me on an exciting Project. The idea is to convert different types of Inbound-Data (such as Emails, Chats, Images, Attachments, ...) into readable text. Then structure the text, index it and based on content and criteria to process the data and information (e.g. forward the email, send a reminder, save the attachment into a specific path). As follows 2 reference sites which go a little bit in the direction of what I'm planning to do: Web and Data Scrapping to extract Data from the Internet and other Sources: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_scraping https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_scraping And the next step: Computer to understand natural language Text: http://phys.org/news/2013-07-natural-language-texts.html The process starts with automated Data Conversion. Then Data Processing. And at the end to develop the outbound action. There is no fix given development language on this Project. This is subject for research and discussion. Please estimate and propose on the following first use-case example to proof the concept, described in the google doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vqzoxIvY46M0kTl_l1mqt4AHzuRDu3pLFNQqihhnM3Y/edit?usp=sharing I'm located in Phnom Penh and looking for somebody onsite, starting on an flexible hourly base, which will allow you to manage your time even if you already have another job. I'm looking forward to your qualified contact. Please already submit some comments about this task and which technical approach you would have in mind. Thank you and best regards, David

PROJECT OVERVIEW: We are currently working on an infographics campaign to promote our business, and we need an expert web researcher who has experience in the area of home safety/monitoring/security. JOB DETAILS: There are 3 parts to this job. Part 1 is... I'm looking for someone who can gather statistics on property crimes and home invasion (State Level) in the US for the last 10 years. Data should include but not limited to the following: • demographics. • time & exact location. • number of accomplice on a single crime committed. • tool(s) used for the crime. • point of entry • how often they commit same crime on the same house/place. • the estimated cost of the properties stolen. • stats on domestic violence committed by burglars. • how many burglary cases are solved each year. -------------------------------------------- Part 2 of this job is: Statistics on the average spending of Americans per state when it comes to home security for the last 10 years. Data to show: • annual income. • number of family members. • how much is spent on home security gadgets/services/mobile application. • have record of intruder reports • have record of burglary reports. And then... Stats on how much they spend (per state) on luxury like: • gadgets • car • home improvement • home accessories • personal items. -------------------------------------------- Part 3 of this job is: Make a list of top 100 safest cities in the US for the last 10 years. The listing should be based on the stats below: population stats on violent crimes stats on property crimes stats on burglary & home invasion number of burglary & home invasion cases solved. The ranking should be according to the stats of the crimes recorded versus the number of cases solved for the last 10 years. -------------------------------------------- STEPS TO GET THIS DONE: 1. Unless you know the “go-to” places on the web, you’d start your search by using the following search strings: “crime statistics by _____” enter either the city, zip code, state, street address and year. “crime statistics services” there are services that offer free data like http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/neighborhoods/crime-rates/top100safest/. You already have some of the data ready to go. “NameofCrime clearance rate in Year” i.e. “property crime clearance rate in 2005” The key here is to think of possible keyword combination to help you find the information you need. 2. Next you’ll have to record everything on a spreadsheet. To be considered for this job, I expect you know your way creating spreadsheets. You will then fill in the data into a spreadsheet we will provide you with. NOTE: The first two part of this job is in the US state level, while the third one is on the city level. You may notice there are other websites offering data on the 100 safest city out there. Our goal is to top those and offer a much bigger data of information to our readers. -------------------------------------------- A couple things. When you apply mention "I have the expertise" in the first paragraph of your cover letter. Also, give me an overview of your process and how soon can you deliver the first set of data. I’m looking for someone who can work on this right away as we may have future projects together if things go well. See you on the other side! Rock on!
