What to expect as a Captioner

To become an employee, a candidate must first successfully complete our screening process. This includes submission of a resume, a telephone interview, and evaluation of at least two samples of the candidate’s realtime text production, which are evaluated by the company. If the candidate is offered and accepts a position as a result of this screening, the candidate is brought to the central offices in Denver for 4-5 days of intense onboarding training. After that, the employee returns home, sets up his captioning equipment, and performs mock and shadow events. When the employee is performing consistently and seems to understand all of the procedures involved in performing a captioning event, he is approved to go live and is given a schedule of events he is to caption.
