Through Craigslist I saw that 3Play Media was looking for contractors, people who could transcribe audio into text. I’m always looking for freelance work so I applied at this page (external link). After a nerve-wracking forty minutes or so I completed their test, only to be greeted by this language:
“We have received far more interest in this remote contractor position than expected. We plan to review preliminary applications as necessary to meet our workflow demands. . . . We understand that in the interim your availability and interest may change.”
Please. Tell me that you have enough people before I take a test, rather than after it. And if you do have enough people, why don’t you pull your ads off of Craigslist (external link), rather than running them across the country?
Still, it is 2015 and we are all living in The New Economy. Take the test if you are desperate. You may be the Unicorn they are holding the job position open for. Good luck.
