Sometimes finding these types of jobs online takes a bit of research. Most of the big companies that offer these types of jobs don’t usually advertise in common places or online job boards. You usually have to go directly to the company and apply on their website. I have seen that Appen Global advertises their jobs on Flexjobs.com, but that website charges a monthly fee. I never quite understood how a company can charge you to find a job, but they are the exception.
Finding these jobs and applying for them are different for each company. Going to each individual website is the best way, as long as you know where to go, and how to apply. With that being said, this article, and the videos we have provided, will show you how to find the work from home jobs.
One of the other important things to consider when looking for these types of jobs is your location. Some of the contracts that are offered through companies like Appen, Lionbridge, and Leapforce require you to live in the demographic area that the project requires itself. The reason for this is because the data from different regions will be different depending on location and the language.
Before you begin to apply for these jobs, or really any job for that matter, it’s probably a good idea to go over your resume and make sure it’s up to date, and that it includes only the important information that is necessary. It might also be to your benefit to have your resume checked by a professional. The resume experts at Resumewriters.com is an awesome service that I have used in the past, and having your resume edited or corrected by a professional is a sure fire way to get noticed and get you the job you want. Many of our readers have had very good results with them.

Another important note is that if you have worked previously on other social media projects with different companies, don’t mention this on your CV/resume. The two most important factors about this are that you do not need previous experience for these jobs. And second, if you have worked on these types of projects before you will most certainly be looked over and turned down for similar projects. The reason for this is uncertain, but we have seen other people turned down because of this.
You can work on two different projects for more than one company. However, you need to use a different IP address for one or the other. So if you work for Leapforce and want to work on another project with Lionbridge, you will likely need a different IP address. Leapforce seems to be the only company that records an IP address and this is shown in the backend or the portal of the work dashboard. This is why it’s a good idea to use a separate IP address for another project. It might also be a good idea to use a different email between companies when applying for and working on these jobs.
Some advice when working on different projects so that you don’t overwhelm yourself is to get some experience working on one project with a company before trying to get another contract with a separate company. Most of these contracts are part time. So its beneficial to have more than one project at a time if you can handle it.
A really important thing to note here is that you can only have one contract per IP address when it comes to these companies. So if more than one person is working for any of these companies, it is important to have a separate IP address. You can usually order another IP address from your internet service provider for about $4-5 per month extra. Check with your ISP to find out if you require more than 1 IP address per household.

Lionbridge search rater project is called the Google rating project which is the same as Yukon at Leapforce and raterlabs. They also have the positions of Personalized Social Media Assessor, Personalized Internet Assessor, and Personalized Web Assessor.
At Leapforce/Raterlabs you would apply for Search engine evaluator position first, and then based on project availability, you would get invites for Yukon, Nile, (Facebook social media evaluator) Truckee or Shasta projects. You can work on more than one project at a time.
Many of my readers will be interested in how to get invited to other projects at Appen Global. Appen Global offers a lot of different types of projects that you are able to work on. Unfortunately, is not likely that you would be contracted to start on projects such as the Thunderbird music project from the beginning. You would be more likely to start on a larger project first such FalconInstaAds or the Aztec project. Once you have started working at Appen, and you are on a Falcon project, like any of the social media projects that they offer, you will likely get an invitation to start on other projects as well. The more you work, and the better your performance is, the more offers you will get from Appen.
Those projects include:
Aztec (Web search evaluator/Search engine evalutor)
Facebook/Instagram Ads assessor projects (Social media Evalutor)
How to Apply
We thought it would be a good idea to create some quick walk-through videos to show you how to apply for these jobs and the different companies. Some of these

How long does take to hear back from Lionbridge/Leapforce/Appen?
It depends on many factors, sometimes immediately, and sometimes it can take 3-4 months.
It might be that at the moment of your application submission, quota of raters for your country was reached and therefore Leapforce/Raterlabs or Lionbridge does not hire new rater at the moment. As soon as they fire unsuccessful raters, they continue hiring new people to maintain the required number of raters in your country.
