Hello Susan, I am a student at Long Island Business Institue in Commack New York, im am in the last speed class. I am very excited about court reporting. I can't wait to finish. I was just would like to know if you have any good advice for me?
I'm a relatively new scopist trying to basically get my foot in the door in this business. I'm looking to court reporters to find out exactly what they may be looking for in a good scopist. I'm fairly certain that the biggest thing I lack is experience. I have taken online scoping courses for the past 12 months, and have a friend who is also a scopist who has been helping me as well. If you do use a scopist, I would like to know if you would be willing to let me scope a few pages for you for free. It is my hope that maybe I can gain some credibility and real hands on experience this way. I would very much like to be critiqued on my work as I feel this is the only way I'm going to learn and continually improve. I would also be willing to proofread,
but to be quite honest, I have no formal experience in that field. I do consider myself to be quite on target spotting mistakes
and punctuation errors when reading random things, but I don't want to even think that qualifies me as a decent proofreader. Any advice on proofreading would also be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for any information you may be able to offer.

I was contacted by Dynamic Depos to cover a job for them in California. She gave me your name as a reference. If you could please let me know what your experience has been with her agency, I would appreciate it. I've sent you a friend request, so that you could send me an e-mail.
