Transcript editor and legal writer wanted on an ongoing and part-time basis. Longer term and more full time opportunities may be available.
Legal experience is not required - just strong writing skills, sharp attention to detail, and a somewhat flexible schedule to complete assignments in a timely manner according to guidelines below.
Your duties would be as follows:
Primary (Main) Duties:
-you would be taking a written document (a verbal interview on a legal topic that has been transcribed from audio to text) and editing it for sentence structure, grammar, spelling, etc. Transcripts are about 7-10 pages long (this includes title pages and table of contents). Transcripts take between 1-1.5 hours to complete.
-you must be able to use common sense to decide which things should be taken out of the transcripts (um's and uh's and those sorts of things). The transcribers literally type out whatever is said in the spoken interview - it is your job to make the text look presentable enough for a professional legal website.
-IMPORTANT: Transcripts have a 72-hour turn around time, so you must be able to get edited transcripts back to us within that time frame
-We would either give you about 10 questions with paragraph answers (all on a legal topic) to re-write into your own words (so that it is not plagiarized), or we will give you a several paragraph article to re-write into your own words (so that it is not plagiarized). You would re-write the content and send it back to us.
-Turn around time for writing assignments are usually between 7-10 days
-Article re-writes take between 1-2 hours to complete
*We project about 6+ transcripts and 1-2+ writing assignments to be sent to you weekly
Pay is $30 per transcript, and $20/hour for writing assignments, paid through direct deposit weekly each Thursday. You will be paid as an independent contractor (1099 not W2).
To apply, please send your resume and a writing sample by responding to the ad.
If you qualify, we will send you few paragraphs of raw transcribed text for you to edit and send back as a sample. A phone interview will be conducted afterwards for top applicants.
