A social networking site based in the US is looking for new or experienced oDesk contractors to perform its transcription needs.
On a daily basis, you will be given a specific number of recordings to be completed. Work hours/schedule will be flexible. Whats important is that you finish all of the assigned recordings within the day.
We have a large number of recordings waiting to be transcribed right now and more recordings will be coming in on a regular basis. Thus, this will be a long-term opportunity for the right candidates.
If in case you finish the assigned recordings earlier within the day, you will be assigned a new set of recordings that you can work on during that time. Thus, your earnings will depend on how fast you transcribe the recordings.
We will pay a fixed price of $5 for the first project and this will serve like a trial job. The trial job will serve as a training session with exam. This will help us identify if you are fit for the job. After this, you will be given a regular contract which we will pay a fixed price of around 20-50 dollars for a batch of 10 recordings depending on the length of the recordings. Everytime you get assigned a recording batch, the payment will be discussed to you (since it will vary depending on the number of recording minutes that you will be working on).
