I'm a court reporter leaving the field to take care of my fiancee who is ill. I'm trying to become a scopist and was referred to this site. I'm brand new here and green when it comes to this. Can you give me any tips or pointers on how to advertise and work as a scopist? I'd appreciate all your help. Thanks. Terry Kozakevich
This is the first time that I have been on this site. I started court reporting school a little over a year ago. I would love to start proofreading or scoping. Can you maybe give me some direction, I am not sure where to start. Thanks Debbie firstname.lastname@example.org
I have about 160-170 pages that need to be scoped (Case CAT) against digital audio and proofread, normal turnaround. Do you have anyone good and reliable to recommend?
I can't promise regular work, but every once in a while, like now, I get backlogged and need some help. The scopist I usually use is not able to do it this time because she's working on 3 days worth of dailies.
I'm an experienced realtime court reporter with over 16 yrs in the field. I do have a primary scopist, but because of the volume of work I take and the amount of dailies/expedites I have, I need to have a full-time secondary scopist. I am looking for someone who can handle taking an additional 150-200 pgs per week/every week, who MUST BE ABLE to split dailies/expedites. Audio sync capabilities is a must!! Please call asap because I have more work than I can handle and am only looking for someone who is top notch and reliable.
Thanks for that info. I am enjoying this site, too. It's actually kind of fun to play around adding photos, videos, music, and playing around with the way my page looks (good way to spend a short break from scoping during the day).
I would love to scope while in school, but I cannot afford your course, I work part-time and I need to get another part-time job to afford to get my supplies to finish school, and then a car...so right now, unless I could get a student loan, which I realize is not offered, I could not afford it. But I will definitely keep that in mind when my financial situation allows for it.
Thanks for the awesome welcome! This is a neat site and I wouldn't be surprised if it really takes off in short order. I'll be popping in every now and then when I get a chance. Thanks for taking the time to contribute to your profession and others!
