    Putting Mturk work on a resume

    Hello, everyone, turns out that I found a listing for a part-time, out-of-the-house job that I want to apply for. It is at the local library. And I want to update my resume to put Turking on it, since that is what I have done for money for the last year or so.

    One question is, what do I call the job and the company, since Amazon is technically not the employer? And what should I say I do? One thing the job is looking for is someone who can work independently. They probably also want someone who is good at sorting information. So I am thinking about saying something about determining work hours that met clients' needs. I am also thinking about looking back at my recent work and saying I do an average of [number] data entry tasks and [number] proofreading tasks per week.

    What does everyone think? Thanks in advance for your input!

    I'm so glad to help! I was pretty tickled with it myself and thanking God for popping it into my brain!

    Thanks--now I know what to say to people when they ask me what I do with all the time I spend on the Internet.

    Haha, I feel you. More people will be aware. More people will try and do online jobs in the coming years.
