i got an email saying that I am suitable for the internet assessor role, and to sign the agreement before they send me the test material. How long is the wait usually before they will send me the test?
which project is this for?

In regards to Leapforce: I didn't really consciously realise that your contract has to be renewed every year (I believe).

Has anyone any experience of this?
Yes it is every six months. Just got an email saying my contract has been renewed - this is my second renewal - last time I was panicking as I had had some mixed reviews but this time I completely forgot about it so am very happy!! I have been doing Yukon mostly - just started Truckee in December so don't know how they review that.

Oh, no @hkjacks :(, this is exactly what put me off finishing my application to them in the end.

The revising and exams sound very intense and involve A LOT of 'unpaid' work to get through them all with no guarantee of even getting a job at the end of it - or if you will even like the tasks and/or be able to do them. And even then, the work may be sporadic or only for 6 months.

Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise for you and something better will turn up instead :)

That sounds pretty much like leapforce..... they said I passed the exam for the Map, and after signing all the document, they said they are not going to process the application.......

@parmit have you emailed them? I know they say not to but I’ve found it sometimes gives a bit of a prompt. Is Yukon still appearing on your project list or has it gone off there?

Mmm very frustrating. I’ve had it where I’ve signed the docs then it disappeared from my project list and when I’ve emailed they’ve said it’s no longer available in my area. Maybe a case of sitting tight with the odd prompt email. Fingers crossed they sort it for you.

@Pixieyrj or Anyone that’s done the Lionbridge map exam, do you need to pass both parts at 100% or do you know what the pass level is? I’ve read the guidelines and jumped onto the mock exams to see the type of questions as I felt bogged down with all the reading. But now wondering what the expectation is for a pass rate.

Does anyone know if I can apply for another project with Lionsbridge whilst I’m undergoing the exam for this one?

I don't think you need 100%... and I don't think if you get one wrong within a task you will be mark down everything else. But they don't tell anything about that, I only get a email I passed and that it. mock exam will count you incorrect if you get one wrong. also the multiple choice only have one answer right not multiple like the mock test.

So I applied for the Nile and Trukee projects around three weeks ago now and still not heard anything back for either of them (I know I can’t do both). Is it me or do the time frames seem really sporadic?
