*** Please note that you must live within an hour’s drive of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada to bid for this job. ***
I have several directories (books) containing contact information for journalists.
I need someone to go through these directories and type me up an Excel table containing the following 5 fields:
First Name and Last Name
For example, A SINGLE ENTRY would contain the following information:
janesmith[at her email address]
Many of the email addresses have the same suffix (which cuts down on the typing). For example:
janesmith[at Toronto Star email address]
billjones[at Toronto Star email address]
fredbrown[at Toronto Star email address]
There are a LOT of names. I'm not sure exactly how many, at least 1,000, maybe as many as 15,000.
I can break the job up into several lots; I am NOT necessarily looking for one person to do the whole job.
I would drop off the directory at your place (within an hour's drive of Hamilton), you would do the data entry, I would later pick up the directory and the file (on a Flash drive) and pay you.
Since people type at different speeds, and since this is a job you can start and stop whenever you have time, I AM ONLY REALLY INTERESTED IN YOUR BID ON A "PER ENTRY" BASIS.
So, if you want to bid on this project, just bid $100 for the whole job, but in the "Bidder Comments," submit a PER ENTRY BID and the amount of time you think you can can devote to the project per week over the next six weeks.
For example, your bid could be:
Bidder Comments: 1¢ per entry, 10 hours per week for 4 weeks.
I AM ONLY GOING TO PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR BID *PER ENTRY* IN THE "BIDDER'S COMMENTS" AREA.
Note: After I posted the job, I realized that you will have to bid a minimum of $250 for the whole project. But, everything else is correct -- what I really care about is the PRICE PER ENTRY. Good luck!
