I'm just going through the attachments for an Online Task Contributor and it goes on about registering as self-employed/tax etc. Am I expected to do that from the start because I a/ might not get offered any work or b/ might not like the work or get enough? I'd really rather not get involved in registering for self-employment at the moment. Do they require evidence?

You only need to register with HMRC when you have earned over £1000 in a tax year which if you are doing the social media rating work you would do as you make about £3600 from it

So I am thinking of signing up to Lionbrige for the Social Media Evaluator project, but have two questions:

What are bakeoffs?

Is it correct that you cannot be on Appen and Lionbridge at the same time?

Bake offs are the equivalent of attention checks to make sure you aren’t blindly rating

for web search evaluator work you can’t but this is social media rating

Has anyone signed up to the Social Media job without having a Facebook account? I am very active on messenger and instagram (and various others), but I can't standard facebook much anymore.

Is it a no-go if you don't use Facebook?

I’ve officially resigned and reapply for SME job. I don’t why I didn’t go for ads in the first place. I’m really annoyed with myself. Let’s see if I get hired.

So I finished of my application for the Lionbridge SME yesterday. Got the links sent through, accepted the agreement and passed the English test (second time because I rushed and am a moron).

Now it is a waiting game! I see that some people waited up to 6 months so I am hoping for quicker than that.

I would be really interested to hear anyone who had a recent quicker turnaround than that.

They recruit in waves and based on your answers to the initial form so if you said you use BOTH Instagram and Facebook then you tend to get onboarding quicker than someone who said they just used Facebook

Ah - I went just Instagram and messenger as Facebook is not the one for me.

Can I apply for the Search Engine Evaluator or other projects (such as Saluda which is a SME) on Appen whilst I wait?

I got put on the reserve list for the social media evaluator job. How long is the wait on average from other members here?

4-6 months maybe. Less if there is a recruitment drive at their end
