Dependable Transcribers for Overflow

Job Description

I am looking for a few SKILLED transcriptionists to help with occasional overflow work. You must know the difference between audio hours and the amount of time you put forth for a project as you are paid per audio hour, not how long it takes you to complete a file. The pay is 15 cents per audio minute ($9.00 per 60 minutes of audio). The oDesk fees are the providers responsibility.

I am looking for a few qualities that you must posses:
Excellent understanding of English grammar and language
Foot pedal and Microsoft Word
The ability to proof your own work prior to submitting
Ability to follow instructions
Ability to meet tight deadlines
Ability to communicate well about the work you've taken on

I typically send out mass emails to my providers letting them know of any file I have available and the turnaround and if you choose to accept the work you must be able to meet the guidelines and the turnaround. I have heard many, many excuses about why work is late or why it wasn't completed fully and I do not keep these providers around long so please keep this in mind when bidding. I have no tolerance to excuses.

I am looking for English speaking providers who have done past transcription work and know the importance of providing a fully proofed file prior to submitting it to me. I do not want to have to spend hours proofing your work it should be 98% accurate when submitted to me. Please keep in mind turnarounds and quality of the audio will vary from file to file so if you claim a file from me make sure your schedule allows you to return it in time. I am looking for providers who are ready to do work when the need arises. If you're someone who only wants to claim work once or twice a month this may not be for you, I'm looking for individuals who are eager to help out and are able to provide a quality transcript that's proofed prior to submission and meets deadlines.

The files are general in nature but may include technical jargon and/or medical terminology so you will need to be good at doing online research. I will provide a template, guidelines and a sample that must be followed for every file! I typically use Dropbox.com which is free if you do not already have an account. Files will be sent through there however completed transcripts are to be returned via personal email.

I do require a short 3 - 5 minute sample test. If the selected providers do not provide a quality output then you will not be hired for the overflow assistance. The sample test is timed to determine if a provider can return a file and meet a deadline.

If you meet the above qualifications please bid. If you lack the skills listed in this posting then please do not waste my time or yours as you will be rejected.

I'm looking for honest and hard working individuals to help me out from time to time. Pay is 15 cents per audio minute and the pay is two times per month on the 16th and the 1st - Please keep this in mind when bidding, payments are not issued after each completed transcript but only twice a month.
