lemme not die in silence biko. have i been chased outta QA?

i resumed last week after a very looong break. tbh, i had a 1.7 rating and although i hadn't done 10 calls yet. i think, 5/6 calls, can't remember.

But since last week that i resumed, till this moment, i haven't seen 1 call at all at all. i was thinking the scarcity affected me drastically, it affects bronze members mostly anyway. but now that you guys are saying there were calls last week. does that mean, i'm done with QA?

Check at night between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. in the morning.

Exactly. Number of calls on queue depends on badge.

Good. There are also many geniune jobs you can do online (like a translator, online proof reader, media managers and many more) to make money. TRY THESE
drawnobet:
Yes you can be self employed anywhere you are in the country transcribing for a living.

This thread will teach you everything you need to know to start up and the tools needed to deliver the goods.

You would need

1. A PC, tab or mobile phone
2. Affordable internet connection
3. Good head phones
4 Good command of English

Everything else can be learned on this thread. For those of us who have already started transcribing, we're welcome to share our ideas here so that this can be our online community.

To avoid this thread being banned, kindly let us adhere to all the rules of Nairaland.

Should we want to share screenshots, kindly let's block the company and important call info.

Also all forms of advertising is prohibited and will be reported.

Edited 9/7/2019 posted by samsard for newbies. Once you master these, the rest go easy

E.g
Rep: I was gonna, uhmmm, I was gonna tell ya about, about the new product we launched.
What they need: I was going to tell you about the new product we launched.

Punctuation: Hello, Philip. It's Emily calling from CLH Group. How're you doing today?
Cust: I'm fine, thank you. And how are you?

Longer calls will be more complex in terms of punctuation but for a start
A comma before and after a name in mid sentence. A comma before or after a name in salutation.
You're also allowed MINOR corrections for making clear transcripts.
Anyway, read through the FAQ and regularly Consult it while working at least till you acquaint yourself with it's detail

All full company names, PayPal email addresses and screenshots that include confidential company information must not be shared on this thread and will be reported

Avoid funding Circle Uk calls. If you see a 6mins with estimated time of 6hrs to 7hrs, avoid them. Concentrate on 2mins to 5 mins calls. Then I have noticed that saturday and sunday calls are mostly US calls, those ones are usually very easy to hear. Then read the FAQ and always request for ratings clarafication on slack
