PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS. SUBMISSIONS MADE THAT DO NOT ADDRESS ALL REQUESTED INFORMATION WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE DECLINED AND YOUR USER NAME WILL BE PUT ON OUR DO NOT HIRE LIST FOR FUTURE ODESK ASSIGNMENTS FOR INABILITY TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS.
We do not make upfront payments. We understand contractors being concerned about of non-payment so we will be happy to make milestone payments as agreed upon for the first project as necessary in lieu of upfront payments.
We are looking for US based transcriptionists only. You must have a cell phone number where we can text you for status updates on projects as necessary.
We are looking to bring on additional transcriptionists for our growing company. Ideal candidates will have at least a minimal amount of transcription experience. We only require experience due to most individuals not realizing how much time it takes to accurately transcribe documents.
We are willing to take on individuals who do not have transcription experience but have a good attitude, good work ethic, and pay close attention to details.
We require transcriptionists who can follow all directions including the ability to format files correctly (not using spaces but know how to set up tabs and spacing in word), do audio edits and produce accurate final product. You also need to have a decent grasp of English grammar to be able to discern between differences such as when to use there/their, too/to/two etc.
Additionally we need individuals who have some common sense where if a words sounds like something that makes no sense in the sentence, but it sounds almost like something that probably has to do with the topic that they do not just transcribe the audio as it is "heard".
We prefer to bring on transcriptionists who can complete to at least 30-60 audio minutes on days they are available.
Please provide typical times you are available for transcription work each day as well as the time zone you are located in.
Pay schedule is as follows:
$.20 per audio minute for the first 30-60 minutes worth of audio completed. We realize this is low, and this is only because 90% of transcriptionists we bring on require extensive formatting and quality assurance review in the first few projects they complete with us. If your first 15-20 minutes completed with us is done exactly as requested, we will increase your rate to the next level sooner.
$.25 per audio minute for up to 180 minutes completed. Again, this is part of the trial to work through formatting and accuracy issues. High level transcriptionists will be increased before completing 180 minutes with us. Transcriptionists who may be having some difficulty with accuracy or not able to complete files in the time requested may receive the option to work with us on a case by case basis at this rate.
$.30 per audio for audio minutes completed with us over 180 minutes. Additional rate increase or bonuses will be given per project or per transcriptionist again depending on the number of ours they regularly complete with this, their accuracy levels and work ethic.
We do have several transcriptionists who make significantly more than $.30 per audio minute with us or get offered other positions with our group depending on client needs.
When submitting your interest, be sure to provide the following:
Transcription experience - we do not need an extensive detail just if you have limited experience, no experience, or a couple years of experience.
Time zone and times you are typically available.
Provide your understanding that the rates offered are PER AUDIO MINUTE not per minute it takes for you to complete a project.
We apologize for the lengthy requirements, however we have had numerous issues with applicants either not following instructions or being disappointed with requirements they did not fully understand which unfortunately has been a waste of hiring time and made us lose projects that we thought were covered.
We look forward to working with you if you are interested and hope for a lengthy and profitable partnership for both of us.
