Four months on The Posse List and no document review offers. Please help me figure out what I’m doing wrong. Anyone care to share how they reply to postings there successfully?

Just out of curiosity in case I want to go semi-FIRE some day, what does a temp doc review assignment typically pay?

I think it depends on location. Around NY/NJ it is about $30/hr. There is also overtime pay. Plus, if you are fluent in another language then the rate will go up.

Have you tried registering at temp placement agencies? I have used Kelly Legal in the past for doc reviews and had been successful at getting consistent projects. There are also other agencies out there, but Kelly Legal was the one that I had the most success with. Good luck!

Kelly Legal isn’t local here but I believe I submitted my materials through them, sounds familiar. I’ve tried BCG, GPAC, PAE, and Robert Half though. No luck so far — recruiters said my materials are fine though and one is still working on pitching me to local places. There isn’t a lot of hiring in my city though due to COVID (even gov and legal aid) so I’m trying to get remote document review to pay the rent for now.

I’m wondering if it’s how I’m replying. I sent my resume (I check to make sure I sent the format they ask for) attached to an email with a brief introductory cover letter, nothing long though, and that I found them through their Posse List posting. Part of me wonders with how rapid these postings happen though if I should just be sending the attachment with a blank email? I have no document review experience, but breaking into it seems impossible right now! I know a few people may be thinking “consider it a blessing” but unless you have $1,100 for my rent next month hold the “blessings” until I get something figured out please.

Tinfoil hat theory of the day: Americans (including me) are disregarding lockdowns because they are genuinely more happy working from home and have more personal time then when they spend 60 hours a week trapped in an office with people they don’t like. Americans are overworked and have subpar benefits compared to developed countries and finally got a taste of what personal life and family life is and they don’t care if things go back to normal.
