B2B Web Researcher for Database Enhancement

Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.
Hourly Job
Part Time
3 to 6 months


The primary goal of the successful candidate will be updating and augmenting our electronic database of businesses for a vertical industry in the U.S.  The source for information will be through available online sources.  No speaking to clients is required.  The successful candidate will have the following demonstrated qualifications:  attention to detail,  a knowledge of U.S. geography, online search strategies, as well as an aptitude with spreadsheets.

The candidate should be able to communicate with our staff on an ongoing basis.

I will ignore applications with simple or irrelevant statements about working hard.  I want to know if you have done this kind of work, and how well you can communicate.  Our current database, which we have developed in-house, is simply out of date and requires attention.  I will answer any questions as quickly as possible.

A technical requirement for this job is the ability to utilize a Remote Desktop Connection through a high speed connection to our servers.  This is an application that is provided on Windows XP Professional, Windows Vista Professional, Windows 7 Professional, etc.  If you want to know more about what this is, please visit Wikipedia and search for "Remote Desktop Protocol".  You must have this on your computer so you know the entries that we have and you can create your own entries on our own proprietary system.  We can train you how to use it, but you must have this on your machine.

We would also prefer to use an IM tool such as Skype.

We look forward to working with you.  We place a premium on prompt communication, so if you apply, please try to respond to our questions in a timely manner.

Thank you,

Herb Ludwig Jr
