There’s a new trend that might be your ticket to a work at home job. It’s called Clickworking or Crowdsourcing. Increasingly, companies are moving tasks to the Internet, where they are completed by independent contractors with the click of a mouse. Evidently, NASA had an experimental project going that used public volunteers (nicknamed “clickworkers” on the site) for scientific tasks that require human perception and common sense, but not a lot of scientific training.
According to clickworker.com, a new subsidiary of humangrid, you can register at their site as a clickworker and complete tasks for a fee. Work independently, whenever and wherever. All you need is a computer, Internet access, and interest in writing, translating, researching, or data processing.
From the website:
What Does A Clickworker Do?
We are always looking for people from anywhere on the planet who enjoy writing, translating, researching, and data processing. As a Clickworker you earn money working completely independently on your own schedule from any personal computer with Internet access.
Each Clickworker chooses by himself or herself, from the pool of available projects, those tasks that (s)he wants to take on. The tasks available may vary from Clickworker to Clickworker based on qualification assessments, previous work assessments, education, language abilities, and declared interests. You may qualify for different projects.
Depending on your total profile and qualifications you may be offered specific projects or may be excluded from some projects.
Payment is paid for each completed and accepted task. The amount is fixed and published ahead of time. Payments are made via Paypal.
According to clickworker.com..
The tasks here at clickworker.com are smaller, in- and by themselves completed, microjobs. Depending on qualifications, speed, practice, and concentration you can earn well over $10.00 per hour. On average, we expect that a Clickworker earns $9.50 per hour. Each Clickworker independently decides, when, where and how much (s)he works. Since many microjobs can be completed in just seconds you can stop and start anytime. As a result, Clickworkers can work anytime, anywhere.
