Job Description

As a dynamically growing company, we seek goal-setters who have an entrepreneur spirit and are looking for a chance to work as an independent contractor with the freedom of flexible schedules. This position is not for everyone, but if you work well independently without supervision, are dependable, dedicated, reliable, detail oriented, and take great pride in the work you do, then becoming an independent contractor is ideal for you. The opportunity we have available for people of such character consists of researching public documents at local county facilities, typically near the circuit courts and collecting minimal information regarding recorded mortgages, marriage records, foreclosures, tax liens, judgments, probates, etc. Our researchers review these recorded documents and based on our defined selection criteria, gather specific information from qualifying documents. Our researchers are compensated per valid collected record, the rate per each varies depending on the locality and mannerisms in collecting. Since pay is based on per record collected, the average hourly pay rate is derived from a combination of ones typing speed, collection method, and the manner in which the records are accessed at the county facility. Some county facilities offer automated viewing of their court document images through onsite data terminals and even over the Internet, while other facilities may only offer image viewing on microfiche or in bound books. The availability of part-time vs. full-time work depends solely on the volume of information available in an assigned county which varies from county to county, driven somewhat by its overall population. Many of our researchers take assignment of multiple counties to reach their desired income. In considering this venture, you should deem this only as part-time work.

No previous experience is required - training is provided to you free of charge. Occasionally researchers are required to make copies and fax pages of court documents - if you are, we will reimburse you for those expenses.
