Anyone a Lionbridge Internet Assessor? - Page 19

post #361 of 579

Update regarding the timesheet:  

 

I filled in my first timesheet exactly as I worked. It was accepted-yay!  So...although the webinar said that some people under-report their time, I'm glad that I can be honest and paid for every minute. Also, I'm finding I really love the work!

2). What can anyone tell me about Workforce Logic? Is that any better than Leapforce? Thanks!


Nope. There is a non-disclosure agreement, so no one can really explain the work to you. But it does NOT take any sort of technical skills. The hard part in the beginning is that there is a lot of variety, and a lot of different rules to remember for each type of job.

I work for leapforce and have loved it! I have only been working for a month and my invoice for last month has been approved, Yay! However I have not had a single task today. I am so worried over this. I love this job and really hope to keep it over the summer while I am not in school. *crosses fingers for more work*

hello, it's my first post here.

 

I have passed both the practical and the theoretical part of the exam, and I should start working for lionbridge in a few days.

 

does anybody know something more about taxes ?

I'm in Italy...

 

anyway, I found that the test was really really interesting, so I think this could be a nice part-time job for me...

Hello Everyone,  peace.gif

 

I am new to your forum. I was searching the internet for ways to make money at home. I was very impressed with each posting here in this thread. It gave so much information! I thank all of you. This information is priceless. Even if you can make only a few dollars, it's better than nothing.

 

I filled out my application to Lionbridge and patiently wait to here back. I look forward to reading the other posts as well. With the economy being so bad, it is hard to make ends meet. I am on a limited income and working outside the home is not possible due to health reasons.

 

I will share this forum with others. Does anyone have any other suggestions of making extra cash? I am always on the internet.

 

Thanks again!bow2.gif

How long does it typically take to hear back from Leapforce after getting your application confirmation?

It took them less then a week to get back to me. I did the tests then was told I was hired at the start of the next week. I had steady work for a whole month and made a decent amount of money:) However this month I only had tasks the first week but since then there has been nothing when I log on:( I wish there was a LeapForce app to let you know when you have tasks waiting...

post #368 of 579

Well, it's been a week now and I haven't heard anything.

 

Someone mentioned either here or elsewhere that people they've known with college degrees did not pass the tests. Lionbridge wouldn't even let me try. Do any of you who work for them have BAs or MAs? I have a BA and am wondering if that is somehow counting against me.

post #369 of 579

I have an M.S.  It doesn't seem to have counted against me with Lionbridge.  It took about 3 weeks for me to hear back from Lionbridge after I applied.  But Leapforce could be different.

I do not have a college degree, but my resume reflects 4 years of college. I saw the ad for leapforce on craigslist and it was seeking "highly educated people," specifically asking for college educated people. I was more concerned they would not hire me because I did not have a degree and they were looking for workers who did have a degree.

 

I applied for Lionbridge back in the winter. It took them a couple weeks to get back to me and inform me they are not accepting applicants in my region. I then applied to Leapforce. It took about 3 months before they got back to me offering the exams which I passed. I have been working for them several months now. I had completely put the application out of my mind and then I heard from them on a day I was feeling really stressed about money :)

 

I would say for the test/work, being smart and studying well helps but there is really nothing that requires college education per se. It requires self discipline, fast decision making, and cultural knowledge. You might learn some of this in college, but it has more to do with how you think than information you would have learned.

I guess the only thing that worries me about it is that I actually make a point of being completely out of touch with pop culture. I guess I would have to be more in tune with it for the job, eh?

post #372 of 579

I am also very out of tune with pop culture. I do not have a TV, I don't listen to music, and basically the only media a regularly consume is NPR, and some times PBS videos. I don't know who most of the celebrities and musicians are now days. Very few task in this job require that knowledge and if it does, then you basically can just google real quick to see some images of what that person looks like and that's pretty much all it takes. No big problem. I really wouldn't worry too much about it.

post #373 of 579

I agree with Fitrah.  Knowledge of pop culture can be helpful for the job, but it's not as important as being able to quickly read and understand information.  I'm pretty out of touch with pop culture, and I've been doing fine.

post #374 of 579

That is really good to know. Thanks for your replies!

post #375 of 579

I applied for Leapforce just over 2 weeks ago have gotten no response yet. Do they tell you if you are not accepted? Is there a way to check the status of your application?

post #376 of 579

Do you need a webcam/phone/or mic for this job?

post #377 of 579

HI Babygirlie,

 

No, you don't need a webcam or mic for this job. There are occasional webinars but you can text to communicate. The main thing is high-speed internet access and a private work area. 

post #378 of 579

Cheryl, it's been three weeks for me and I have not heard a word either.

post #379 of 579

I applied *nervous*
