BLOG - If you can't follow instructions, it doesn't make a good impression
I have been reading many posts from people looking either for permanent full-time/part-time
employment positions or self-employment/independent contractors looking for clients or one-time projects. First off, the posts
are not grammatically correct, the punctuation is either nonexistent or completely wrong, and filled with typos and/or spelling
Reading the posts is bad enough, but people are applying online to these posts and spelling out their own
qualifications and why this person should hire them. THIS PERSON CAN'T HIRE THEM BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE A POSITION TO HIRE
THEM FOR -- THEY ARE THE ONE LOOKING FOR A JOB -- so why on earth are these people applying to the first poster's attempt
at landing their own job?
1. Because they aren't reading; 2. Because they aren't comprehending; 3. Because
they simply don't care to follow instructions or are too stupid to know they aren't even applying for a real position ...
With a typing speed of 120 wpm, Carolyn Bodley began
offering independent contractor/secretarial and transcription services to the Denver metro legal community in 1992.
I am not a court reporter or medical transcriptionist and I don't
videotape depositions -- I'm strictly a legal transcriptionist which means putting spoken words on paper. All my transcripts
contain a certification stating that to the best of my knowledge, belief and ability, the audio/video I received has not been
altered in any way, and the transcript is true, accurate and complete. I have never been advised that
a court rejected one of my audio or video transcripts. If my transcript is rejected by the court, you will
be reimbursed in full for my services. Because I certify that the transcript is true and complete, the entire audio/video
must be transcribed--I am unable to transcribe "just a portion" that you need.
that your transcripts will be typed confidentially, accurately and with attention to detail at a fair price.
Discovery is often turned over in a format other than hard copy.
This discovery includes, but is not limited to, recorded telephone conversations, police interviews, depositions, investigations,
witness statements, and more. The audio and video "words" need to be put to paper,
and your already overworked legal staff often don't have the skills, equipment, the inclination or the time.
Discovery is often the deciding factor of whether a
case goes to trial. Most of us hear, but do we listen? Recently I transcribed a video that had been viewed and listened to
several times and by several people before I transcribed it. There was a one sentence statement that not one person caught
-- this one sentence was not the only reason the case was dismissed one day before trial--however, it carried quite a
bit of weight -- and I'm the only one that "heard" it. Had the video
never been transcribed, how many other words would never have been heard?
