Jon and domravioli, thanks a lot for your kind advices. I understand it now and I think it is perfectly ok if they give guidelines and a reasonable period of time to complete it. I look forward to work with Appen and let you know my experience (if selected)

Was offered a nice transcription job on Appen Global - about three weeks up to 4 hours a day. Took the qualification test and scored 100% and did my first batch of tasks only to be booted off due to "major errors"!! No second chances there! Just as well I have other things on the go ...for now ....

Hi there,
I have received an email from Appen asking me to login and choose one or more projects to qualify for. It then presents me with a list of four projects to choose from. I am wondering whether I should select just one to start with ... or more than one. I don't want to get overloaded by choosing and qualifying for them all - but on the other hand I don't want to miss out!
Can anyone point me in the right direction!

Thanks

well be a bit generic with them...
OK ... this is fun! One is in Egypt, one is a river in Turkey, one is a town in California and the other is in North Carolina ...
Is that as generic as you meant?! :cool:

If Yukon is there go for that

If Nile is there go for that ;)

Ha ha ... yes, perhaps I should look for secret agent jobs!
Great, I will go for Egypt - as the other one you have suggested isn't even on my list! :)

Should I just stick with trying to Qualify for the one project rather than multiples?

I THINK from memory Nile is just a few hours a week work though others on here who have done it more recently can confirm @domravioli any ideas?

I logged in today to submit my hours and noticed that there are 5 jobs on there to 'qualify' for. I've submitted my interest for all 5 as more often than not nothing happens at all but I live in hope!

Anyone else had any new ones pop up?

I did pass the second chance test. Need to wait now until get email from manager. How long usually does it take? And how to know/find the project name?

So when my Nile contract ended in October, I can no longer log onto the portal thing, so can’t see if there’s anything there to qualify for. I’ve emailed them but get the standard “there’s nothing we can do right now” email. Then two days later get the “how do you rate your support “ email. However, I can’t rate it as the sodding link doesn’t work as I can’t log on anymore. So frustrating. I’m fed up with Appen.

That is frustrating. My £600+ a month with them has fallen dramatically over the last few months and is about to drop even further to less than £50 a month. Really hoping something else comes up.

I did hear from them about a web search evaluation type thing but it requires 15 - 20 hours of unpaid commitment just to take a qualification test... not going to happen I'm afraid.

Me too. Only took 10 mins though and sometimes these things lead onto more work. Fingers crossed :)

Got offered a recording task today which initially seemed decent - 288 recordings using their mobile app for $12.

"Please provide a new way you would verbally communicate with a conversational bot, in the context of wanting to navigate a web browser towards general image content destinations."

What it didn't say in the description, that only becomes apparent once you start the task in the app, is that each recording you make, you then have to write a transcription of.

For $12.

Rubbish.

Took me all morning to send an email to a potential client because I was nervous about the amount of money I was asking for. Pretty sure this never happens to men.
