It’s a slow day and you need something to do. While scrolling down your Facebook News Feed seems a lot of fun, hindi ka naman kumikita ng pera. Sayang… So why not apply at Rev? Rev is an online company based in San Francisco, CA who are always looking for dynamic people all over the world. Managed by former employees from Upwork, they are reinventing work by hiring hand-picked freelancers. However, unlike traditional vendors, they use technology to offer unbeatable quality, speed, and value.
As a Captioner, you will watch video and create timed captions synced with the video. I know you are well-familiar with movies that have subtitles or product endorsements that have captions underneath. Yun ang trabaho ng isang Captioner!
- Work from home. Work wherever you want. Everything is done online.
- Work flexible hours. Work as much or as little as you want, whenever you want.
- Choose freely. Likewise, choose which projects you want to work on. We have a wide variety available.
- Get started easily. All you need is a computer, headset, broadband internet, and strong English skills.
The hiring process is easy. It’s the test that is actually kind of difficult. I applied as a Rev Captioner and hindi ako pumasa, lol! Rev claims only 12% of the applicants are actually hired. On the testing process, you will learn all the basics of being a Captioner na agad. I think it’s already the training itself. All I can remember is for the first test, you will caption a 1.5-minute video with a 3-hour time limit. Then, you will submit that to them and wait for their decision.
I was lucky to get into the second stage and this time, you have two 3-minute videos that you need to caption and sync. The deadline is 24 hours. What I did at that time is minadali ko yung exam. I finished the two videos in 2 hours dahil antok ako and gusto ko na lang matapos, haha! Maybe it’s one of the reasons why I did not pass, hmmmm…
Captioner can earn $0.40 – $0.75 PER video minute. It is different from the actual minutes or hours you spent on a project. Say you have a 4-minute video to work on but you spent 4 hours doing it. You will only be paid the 4-minute video you’ve worked on.
Sounds small? Rev says you will be paid weekly, via PayPal. The average monthly earnings can go to $240 (P11,760, $1 = P49.00). And the top monthly earnings of a very masipag Captioner can go to as high as $1570 (P76,930)!
