Thanks for such valuable input. Don't know why my comment offended you but I'm glad I'm not a degenerate cunt who gets triggered
by other people's comments online. If you don't make money online fuck off. Not every wants to or even can work a physical job while in college.
How about you take a deeper look at yourself, and what provoked those comments?
We are strangers who bear no ill will towards you. Our reaction is a consequence of you doing something wrong.
Sugar Daddies and Cam stuff is just a meme here right? Selling your bodies is gross and no self respecting women does that shit.
Back to ur initial response, I totally understand that online work is work too but you cannot compare it to physically getting up and doing shit. That's just common sense.
It's not a "meme". Plenty of women use sugar daddies in order to pay for their college education. If you were that desperate, you would too. Beggars can't be choosers.
As for making money online, I have no idea how as most everything online is a scam. I babysat throughout secondary school and did my homework while the kids were asleep. I got another child-minding job for four years while in college. I have anxiety too but it's not an excuse. I hated having to deal with parents who were just dying for me to slip up and claim I'm abusing their ~precious child~. In fact, the people I worked with were even worse as some of them looked down on me because I wasn't fully qualified yet and they treated me like a perpetual child who couldn't do basic tasks like mop the floor. I was in constant fear of being left alone and a child choking, I hated making lunch-time conversation with my co-workers and I did everything 150% so that nobody could complain about me being a clueless, lazy, under-qualified teenager to the point where I was fucking exhausted. But I still did it. If you were that desperate, you would too.
You just have to suck it up and get into a routine. If you're that bad then it's worth paying for counselling and meds, not splashing out on computers and clothes because mental health is more important than anything else.
Listen, everyone's experiences are different. I'm sorry you had to go through that stress but you don't know my circumstances. Being looked down upon because I'm a teenager isn't something I'm worried about. Anxiety has levels.
Also, the computer is for school and I currently have holes in my all clothes (Nope, not the yeezy collection). I'm not desperate to the point of compromising myself or my reputation. I just want to be able to study hard and work from home for the sake of my mental health and my family.
I did take a deeper look. That's exactly why I responded by questioning you further instead of just replying.
If you reach out for advice, better be ready to be confronted with things that make you uncomfortable. And there's no point in reaching out at all if you're going to discard anything that doesn't fit your fancies.
I pretty much agree with what the rest of the posters say and advise.
I know they do and I'm sure I don't know your situation but what I'm saying is that working while studying was fucking hard. I ended up with weak and grey hairs, my nails stopped growing, I gained a lot of weight, my skin was in poor condition and I damaged my teeth from grinding them. But when you need money, you need money and it was a short-term solution.
I definitely don't think your situation is as dire as you make it out to be if you've shot down most of the suggestions people have given above and you've talked down girls who are in ACTUAL desperate situations by calling them "gross" and saying that they have "damaged reputations". So you're desperate but not that desperate? There's no need to be such a snob. What have you even thought of doing online, could I ask? Or did you hope we'd be able to point you to some survey website that pays minimum wage? Because if that existed, everyone would know about it and nobody would bother getting an actual job.
Tbh I don't feel sorry for you because you seem like an ass.
Why are you doing this? The person tried to help you at your own prompting, and now you're twisting her words and painting yourself a victim.
That you are an ass is not an insult, but an observation. You definitely have been acting like an ass ITT and still are.
We are here to help. As always, it's not the kind of help you want, but the kind of help you need.
Wew this was a big mistake. Either you guys have a really skewed way of looking at things or I'm being samefagged. Anyway, Janny you can delete this thread. I triggered
to many people.
She did get some help in the thread but mainly ignored it in favour of turning it about being against camwhoring.
There's nothing wrong with wanting to do a job online, but she seems to want one that is easy since she will be busy with her program which doesn't really exist online. E-jobs are largely like doing your own business, so you'll have to spend a shitton of time on them. Gaining a following to the extent where you can get sponsors takes daily posting, months of waiting and luck. Task-monkey jobs are long and pay pennies, translation jobs are usually only to credited people. It's not easy finding a job online.
tbh most online work just amounts to extra money on the side. For resources try looking at reddit.com/r/beermoney or if you live in a city or college town craigslist can be helpful for such things like focus groups and such for money.
Another thing I found that might bring you money online is tutoring or talking with Chinese students
>>62790>but she seems to want one that is easy since she will be busy with her program which doesn't really exist online.
This plus the fact that most of us do have some kind of work ethic and it's pretty insulting to have someone turn their nose up at both real jobs and the jobs women actually get when they are in desperate situations since we've all had to grit our teeth and bear them despite the challenges we've faced. It strikes me as really snobbish and bratty tbh. There are plenty of on-campus jobs I could reccomend to someone with anxiety as I've been there myself but I'm not going to reccomend them to people who just want an "easy" job because they're not bothered to get a real one.>>62793>simple job that requires little effort. Physical jobs are a last resort for me.
And that's exactly why nobody is entertaining you, brat. You came here looking for advice and turned your nose up to people's suggestions. When you seek advice, you should thank whoever is giving it and you can choose to not take it on board. There's a life lesson they won't teach you in college.
To me I don't really think so because I don't like needles, but a ton of people do it and while it is only $20-40 a session that does equate to a lot for the 1-2 hrs it took.
I don't know about other places but in my area they don't give you cash, they give you a card that charges you to use, so people come in to my work to withdraw the cash off the card it sometimes it's less than the original amount.
>>62860>I think there is a thread in /ot/ about getting sugar daddies without involving anything sexually explicit.
No guy is gonna pay you money unless you're at least sending nudes.
Very few exceptions, don't bet on you being one of them.
First of all, fuck you if you think you'll find an easy job that pays decently online lmao. You won't.
Now the only way to make money online is to have some entrepreneurial skills : Find something you can do (do resumes, build simple portfolio websites, take pictures, draw or make personalised postcards, anything) assuming you have the basic skills then advertise to the right people, usually on specific facebook groups.
Now if you have no skills whatsoever there's very few things you will be able to do online as there's a lot of foreigners accepting pennies for the same job. But if you manage to locate websites where you can advertise freely (Craiglist, facebook, whatever) you might make about $20 a commission which is nothing much but can help you at the end of the month.
I don't know where you live but I've gotten multiple internships and two scholarships just fine on account of my good grades and extracurriculars. I study finance and banking.
Sorry your babysitting job is the only good thing you've got going for you I guess.
Catches:>no need to watch whole video, just click link in descript box after getting the jist>only for Americans
I just signed up today so I can't tell you if it works just yet, but hell surveys and writing websites are the only legit ways of getting cash online if ur not influential or selling product
this thread went sour real fast, but anon if you want a lot of money just for clothes and stuff you can find a really tiny like <20 hour a week job. i work online from home all day and its a lot more work than those kind of jobs,
online work =/= easier work
working from home =/= easier
having a company or team that manages you tells you what to do and you just need to show up and do it then clock out and your life isnt consumed by working with no off time = easier
if you have skills some suggestions like proofreading or teaching online for a cheap price is a good idea but if your anxiety is the thing thats getting to you its hard to make money without some kind of interaction that might make you anxious, phone calls or skype calls or anything. the best jobs for people with anxiety are night time/evening jobs, cleaning jobs, stocking jobs, and stuff that just kind of is obviously loner bait. good luck i hope you get clothes without holes one day
I've talked to a co-manager where I work about this recently, this new phenomenon of young adults thinking it's okay to use "Oh I have to go home, I have anxiety" or "I'm bipolar, I can't do this" as excuses at work.
So, do you think we're the first generation in existence to have anxiety? Mood disorders? Panic attacks?
No. We aren't special.
We are however, the first generation to actively make excuses for our laziness and instead of acting like adults we are regressing to childlike states and relying on the internet as a crutch instead of doing the right thing and pushing through. Fuck. It's embarrassing. Excuse after excuse after excuse. Every single person giving their life story as an excuse to their behavior. That isn't how life works, that isn't how the real world works.
You get a fucking job like the rest of us. Your issues are not special. You are not special.
I struggled with this when I was younger, and I spent ages 18 and 19 unemployed, broke, and completely depressed thinking I wouldn't ever be capable of working around people.
Now I'm in my early 20s and cringing at how I acted when I was younger, like a melodramatic brat. Work sucks, no shit. I deal with a lot of bullshit–but so does everybody else. I struggle, I feel anger over how it feels like I put forth so much effort and get little in return but for fucksake so does EVERYBODY ELSE.
You can spend your life crying in your bedroom and spending hours on the internet making excuse after excuse as to why you can't put in your dues like the rest of us but at the end of the day you're only hurting yourself and your ability to interact with other humans. You'll spend the rest of your life as a parasite relying on other people and bursting into tears every time a stranger looks at you funny. Have fun with that.
We have anxiety because nowadays it is so hard to get a job. We're told by everyone if we don't get a college degree we will be working useless minimum wage jobs the rest of our lives, and then when we graduate and enter the job force there are practically no jobs. Yeah sure if you're a stem major you may be fine
Its, for the most part, baby boomers and republican's fault for fucking millenials over.
>inb4 muhh bootstraps
Fuck you autistic cunt. You're brainwashed. Congrats on getting a decent job but so many people are fucked right now.
Yes. I was.
I knew that NEETs would come out of the woodwork taking full offense and flinging insults. >>62968
Get a job.>>62970
And? There are thousands and thousands in third world countries who would kill to have the opportunities we do. Sitting around on the internet crying about it for the rest of your life and recycling the same excuses as to why you can't get a job is hardly productive. Do you hear yourself?
And hilarity of calling me an autistic cunt. I don't think that you know what autistic means at this point, you insufferable baby.
Lel if you get a job you're brainwashed! You're a wagecuck! Sucking on your parents' teets and never leaving the house is how we fight the economy and make positive changes in the world! Yeah!!!1
No one was talking about entry level meme jobs, or STEM. Op sure wasn't and neither was >>62976
. In fact >>62976's entire argument was millenials shouldn't cry about having to wait tables while having mental illness or whatever.
You need to take a minute and think about why it is you went off on an off topic tangent about nothing
I think we all agree that you're the autistic cunt.
I have a job but you sound like a cunt, you cunt.>>62971
> Yeah it was harsh, but anon spoke the truth and you took offensefor some reason
Yeah, I'm sorry that I'm not in a fucking war zone in some nigger shithole in a fucked up part of the world. What do you want me to say? We all have our battles to fight but you have to be really ignorant or just plain stupid to sum everything in a, > you're such a pussy if you don't like it
Do you really think we should just accept the current circumstances in our world, with the real estate bubbles and lower wages that barely sustain a decent living? With the collapse of our ecosystem and fast growing world population that at the same time makes human life worth nothing?
Sure, go ahead and be a fucking sheep, gobble up all the shit that the society wants you to swallow. But I will never be content with the way things are going even though I do have a job. Social anxiety is common mostly because a lot of young adults get to realize that working hard doesn't net you much. And sometimes, not even working smart. What's the point in doing anything with high expectations of our modern day society that describes success and value in terms of money. The social media just make it worse.
Go tell people that studied a non meme degree and can't find work, tell them in their face how to get over themselves. Or go tell someone that is overqualified doing some shitty job with shitty hours after putting aprox 5 years into university, to get over with depression and muh feelings. Go fucking neck yourself.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)
Most of this thread is a bunch of bullshit arguing, does anyone have actual advice on this?
I'm in school and my program gets really busy on and off, so I need flexible work. It's okay if the pay isn't great, I just want to supplement my pocket money.
I signed up for Amazon Mechanical Turk, but they seem to pay like shit for the work you do. I like taking surveys and would do things like that or being a research guinea pig for money. I'm also a pretty good writer, have good manners, done copywriting, and can do tech support, so I've thought about flexible or part-time work in any of those.>>69313
I know I said it seems like Mechanical Turk pays like shit, but maybe I just don't know what I'm doing. What were your tactics using it?
Surveyjunkie, earn points by doing surveys and you can cash out at $10 and you can put it into your PayPal when you cash out. My parents do this and they've already got $40 saved into PayPal for rainy days.
Things to know, you might not qualify for some surveys and you sometimes have to be careful with your answers or you're kicked out. So you can just lie your way through to qualify.
Good luck anons.
There are scripts you can run that will help you find good/well paying hits, such as tampermonkey.
You won't start getting the really good stuff til you get over 100 approved hits. The more you do the better paying ones you'll get.
This is so ridiculous.
All of us have found it difficult to find and keep a decent job for at least the past forty years. Millennials are not special nor are they different from, say, gen x in this regard.
They just pretend it's harder for them and think if they bitch about it long enough, people will believe them.
Kind of like how millennials latched on to identity politics and ruined the Democratic Party with its BS 'progressive' concerns.
No one cares about who you sleep with, your self dx'ed mental illness, how you identify, or what color your skin is. None of these things make you special or interesting or anything. Welcome to the human race and the world of grown ups. God, I hate millennials. I can't wait for everyone to figure out that you're the y2k version of boomers, only more autistic.
I don't know why this turned into such a shit show. Fucking duh it's better to get a stable job, but this random ass person isn't asking out about that.
The stuff I've been doing to earn money online:
If you have some money to invest you can use robin hood app to start investing in stocks. I'd recommend SERIOUSLY doing your research first, though. It's not going to be as good as a real firm or other apps, but it's completely free so long as you don't fuck up or apply for their gold membership, which I wouldn't recommend at all. I've made a few thousand dollars but it's better for long term investments. Penny stocks can be profitable short term, but, like I said, you have to really do your homework. There's a couple good youtube channels if you look up robin hood and general advice. There's also a thread on /biz/ but it's generally a bad place for advice, good place to see people invest in stuff you shouldn't. You might find some good tips from time to time but tread extremely carefully. You can obviously also lose money if you're not careful.
Only other thing I can think of would probably be fiverr. If you have any marketable skill (I do image editing and voice over) you can usually charge a decent amount depending on the type of content they want. If you do something with sound editing or voice you can offer more incentives like adding in copyright free music or sound effects for extra charges. Take a look at the best people in the field you want to go into there and start doing something kind of alike, then market out to your facebook, twitter, etc and you'll eventually start showing up higher on searches. Make sure you use tags too. Don't fuck up and always go out of your way for good feed back, don't shill people out of stuff if you're tired or depressed. Always do your work.
I usually make a couple thousand a month, sometimes more depending on how much I put into it, but I have another job so I don't have as much time as I'd like to for it.
if you're going for stocks then AMD recently took a huge hit despite showing a 300% increase in revenue
it's very volatile but I've made money on it
shopify also tanked +20% because of a short seller and it's enjoying a nice rebound
I've tried Fiverr, it was nearly impossible to have clients. Only had one in months.
But I'm glad that someone is doing good! Making thousands for a freelancer is like a dream

Any girls here in crypto? I wanted to get kind of into it but ended up not being dedicated enough to learn in the afternoons ;_; I did make a couple of hundreds out of eth and btc movements but that was mostly luck and it's a comically low amount of money considering what others are making
I secretly wish someone would spoonfeed me the info
Harsh but I very much agree with this. If you're so desperate for a job you'll apply for literally anything and suck it up. I was at kfc for my last job, my socially retarded ass couldn't fit in, fucking hated it and would go home and cry most nights but I needed that job, I needed that sense of purpose and reason to get out the house more than anything. You suck it up and get on with it. I've since been fired for "Not learning fast enough" which I think means being weird as fuck and not fitting in because the job was mind numbingly easy. Although still stressful because of the fast pace. targets and customer service aspect. sage for blog.
Yeah OP sounds like an over privileged little cunt tbh.
honestly i think online jobs are a waste of time unless you're persuading them as an extra side thing not as your main.
i too was terrified of getting a normie job (and was afraid if i would ever get one because of how useless i am) but now i have been working as a nightshift shelf stacker for over a year and honestly it has helped me with my anxiety quite a bit by forcing me to interact with a limited circle of people on a regular basis (good baby steps versus being thrown into waitressing or something like that) and the money's also nice because of bonus for working in strenous circumstances lol
and yeah it is lame but at least that's something you can put on your cv versus like google surveys you know
also the nightshifts work out great with my uni schedule! sage for blogpost
Amen. If you don't have any advice to add then why bother posting? Just to shit on OP? Rude as well.
Plus, there are tons of legitimate online jobs: data entry, transcription, search evaluation, to name a few. There are real companies that will pay you without ever having to step foot in an office. Just search "work online" and they come right up. It's 2017, people. We're living in the internet age. These anons are behind the times.
Sorry totally forgot about this thread, but the tips I'd give would probably be:
I have cards made and hand them out to people if we get into talking what I do for a living and they seem interested. It has less to do with online income in that case, but if you're a social outgoing person and don't hand them out whilly nilly, only when the person seems like they need someone for that specific area, you'll get some clients. I get a lot of work through facebook when someone just sends me a message going "Oh right, you do blank, right? blank recommended me to you." Sometimes people I've worked with on fiverr will contact me later on for other products or projects, or refer friends to me. You have to be at a pretty high level for the trade you're offering, but offer a higher level "better" option on your page that makes the others seem less desirable. You'll still get people who pick the 5 buck option occasionally, but less and less often. Also it helps to send people a quick email or message a couple weeks after and ask them if the stuff you supplied them with worked for whatever project they were using it for, when I do that I get more outreach for work later on I've noticed. Just pretty much networking and building relationships with your clients. I've gotten some good stuff for my resume/portfolio specifically because I reached out and found out what the fuck I was working on, so I'd recommend it. Also, if you can, have a specialized website with samples of your work where you negotiate without fiverr. Once you start to do it more you'll get more work.
The only problem I've had is, like I said, I don't have enough time. I sometimes have to wait list people and they'll end up going with someone else. It's not a shit humblebrag but it helps that the things I do on there I also often utilize at work so I've gotten a shit ton of practice and time in, you have to really invest in the trade you're selling or they'll go with someone who's putting more into it. Also deliver the best quality of work you can, if something looks fucked up but you've already moved on and you just noticed it hours later go back, open it back up, and fix it. Start over if you have to. Don't undervalue yourself, if it's a big project that requires hours make sure you have an option on your page that reflects the price mark, don't get into the "ugh this is only 10 dollars fuck it!" mindset. Do it like thousands of people will see or hear it, because despite what you think, sometimes they really do use your stuff on things that end up getting seriously big and you don't want it to reflect poorly on you, you want people to hear it and try to seek you out for their shit.>>69679
Robinhood's kind of just baby's first stocktrading app. It doesn't have all the listings that a normal trader would but it's free and without the normal fees you pay per trade. I'd recommend watching some youtube videoes about it and generally trying to understand stocks a little before you jump in, but there's a lot of good information out there now. (also you can't pull your funds out for 60 days so don't put your entire savings in, just a warning)
Thank you so much for these tips! I noted all of the points you made. I'm kind of hoping I can develop my own online business eventually.
Thank you once again for your detailed reply!
> don't get into the "ugh this is only 10 dollars fuck it!" mindset.
Yeah, I almost did today but then I read your post and you're right. In fact, some of these projects will look nice as a showcase and most what's even better, having other people spread the word about your skills feels sooo good.
1. Go to coinbase or cex.io
2. Verify yourself
3. Buy bitcoin
4. Decide if you wanna trade for altcoins
5. If yes, research altcoins and see which kind of you wanna invest into
6. Never day-trade
>>69692>Lionbridge and Appen
The first is a scam and I know it from personal experience, the other one has bad reviews all over so I assume it's equally as bad.
The only ways to actually make money from home are two, and both require dedication: it's either freelance work (copywriter, artist etc.) or camming. No other way round. All those ad rating sites, survey sites… make you only lose your time and barely get anything.
To me it went very differently. I passed the exam actually, everything fine, I learned their guidelines pretty fast, always followed them to a t and they said it was all good. Then suddenly I got fired for doing the tasks exactly as I was doing the other days after always having passed their quality ratings. Lasted 2 weeks and I didn't get paid, no explanations either.
They were sketchy from the beginning to me, because at first they sent me a mail saying that they rejected my application, but some days after I receive a mail by them saying that my application was accepted. I was like… ok
Any of you going the spoiled gf route? >>82068
Anon, you realize if they would struggle with making an honest living they would just keep doing sex work, which is bad for women as you say, so you'd just be perpetuating something you're against lol
nta but i don't agree with sexwork and would want to provide education and job placement opportunities for these women. so please don't think that all of us who are against sexwork actually have this stupid baby-boomer tier logic. if you've ever been in the workforce and then had to do sex work out of necessity, it's hard trying to go back.
also white collar sex work stuff isn't really harming women, they aren't part of the porn industry because they're just self-employed. it's shitty, but only when they try to act like the girls who are at risk every day being pimped out.
I’m not teaching men anything sis, I’m selling a service I provide. Shouldn’t you be hating men for not understanding the difference instead of hating women who are just trying to legally
make a living?
Enlighten me, how is a man that pays for a date in hopes of getting nookie afterwards any different than what I’m doing? Isn’t the girl on the date proving her “sexuality” can be purchased with dinner and a movie? There’s girls sucking dick over some Popeyes biscuits and the ones you have a problem with are the ones actually putting a price tag on it?
Keep on thinking that self employment is easy, I’m not gonna try convincing you otherwise since you’ve made it clear the kind of person you are. You’re speaking so strongly about a topic you clearly don’t understand and it’s making you look stupid. Just remember it’s never too late to educate yourself lol.
I have a problem with gold diggers too, where did I say that I didn't? It's prostitution, just more subtle.
>I'm selling a service I provide
that service is access to your sexuality, to pictures or videos of you performing for men.
>Shouldn't you be hating men for not understanding the difference
I hate both genders for participating in this sort of exchange.
I hope you are able to make a decent living off of this disgusting act.
>Keep on thinking that self employment is easy
Self-employment encompasses much more than selling your body, anon. You seem young. I hope you learn in time.
>>82074>It's sad how little work ethic other women have nowadays.
I know this is 5 days old, but can we just appreciate how much some "feminists" sound like your typical incel-tier man when it comes to certain issues? Imagine this statement coming from a fedora and tell me it doesn't churn your stomachache.
I'm pretty anti-sex work over all, but shitting on the women who participate in it is gross and the ultimate example of exclusionary feminism.
yeah seriously. i'm not necessarily pro-sex work for a variety of reasons but it's not because i think the actions of individual sex workers make women look bad. That mentality is almost the entire reason misogynists are misogynists. It shouldn't matter if some women are unambitious because we know plenty of women are honest hard workers. Women have a wide variety of motivations, philosophies, priorities, shortcomings, and skills because we're fucking humans. We shouldn't need to all be the perfect example of female excellence to be treated as such. To generalize women so much that you think the existence of sex workers reflects on us as a whole is way more misogynistic than anything the average sex worker is doing.
It shouldn't matter if there are women out there who are the embodiment of the worst most patriarchal female stereotype you can think of. We should be judged as individuals the way that men are, not lumped together as a hivemind constantly fearing that one of us will slip up and thereby confirm that we're all a bunch of bimbos.
that's fine but why does that make you think that women in general have a shit work ethic? Even though sex work is more accepted now it's still a vast minority of women.
If your perception of women can be worsened by the behavior of a small class of women, how can you ever expect us to be treated as equals and respected in society? There's always going to be dumb, lazy, scheming, scamming, manipulative, and evil women, as well as combinations of all of those because that's true of any group. The whole problem is that we're objectified so much that people see the actions of a few women as a reflection of us all. Whereas with men, if you do the same thing you're seen as a misandrist. Men are often assumed to be competent and superior until they prove otherwise and women are often assumed to be incompetent and inferior until they prove otherwise.

do you guys want a separate sex work discussion thread in /ot/? because this thread had a cool premise but it's been utterly derailed
I once ranked in $16 in a under a week on Amazon Mturk. I was able to do this during my break time at work, so no time wasted.
I've been kind of desperate to do the depop/poshmark thing for a few weeks. I'll have like $100 to my name once rent is due and I got some bills I want to help pay and groceries to buy.
If one day I'm super desperate for cash I hope someone has a psoriasis on feet fetish KEK
In the meantime, I might try doing a few art commissions.
Although I prefer lionbridge - consistent work, decent pay! I used to work as a rater and it was great…only quit bc I started doing sw online which pays a lot better.
But DO NOT go the sw route unless you really want to! Once you start, you can never go back.
Sorry for the late reply.
The work is completely anonymous, all you do is send and answer to messages on your computer, never any videos or calls or anything related to you in person.
It pays per message sent, and how much one can earn in an hour depends on how fast you can type and whether there are enough messages to be answered.
I'd rather not advertise the company, since they're super strict about any online talk, but I found it when I googled "chat operator job Europe", it's mentioned on the first page results. There are several companies in the same field, the one I work for is European, but I know there are some American ones as well.
It's obviously pretty much slave labor, but as long as I'm residing in this banana republic of a EU country, it does pay some bills.
Nope, it's a different one, but the Texkings seems like a similar gig, though not available in my location. American one that I found is called Chatoperatorjobs.com
Sure you can find threads about all of these companies in reddit and elsewhere, no matter how strict their policies are.>>116889
I actually tried Gotranscript myself, but I was so ridiculously slow doing it that I gave up, it took me like more than 2 hours for a 10 minute file, pathetic.
It's really good that you gave up. The pay is insanely low for the work that you do and the editors are getting way more aggressive and unfair with ratings these days. I started way back when you could have easily climbed to the editor status in matter of days which meant better pay for presumably less work. There was a larger number of files with decent audio quality and the editors were okay most of the time. Now, it's pointless. It's difficult to maintain a good rating with editors being nitpicky and being an editor isn't that great either because it's more difficult to raise a bad rating (a lot of clients have high standards for the shit audio they give). Rev as terrible as it is at least pays a bit better and there are interesting files to choose from. I have completely stopped doing any transcription or captioning work. The crisp clear audio files are given to the AI, the potato recorded focus groups or foreign people speaking in English are now the staple of human transcribers. Sadly, there are people willing to work with such files and for such a low pay.
sorry for the vent.
