Let’s just say, it is not as difficult as you think.
The part which most individuals find hard is the qualifying exam conducted by Telus. The exam is tough and will need your attention and hard work. It has three sets of questions based on the guidelines which assess your theoretical and practical knowledge. If you prepare well and learn the guidelines down pat, then qualifying for the exam will not be rocket science for you.
Because rater jobs belong to the department of artificial intelligence, most people have a misconception that it would require them to have high technical knowledge. The AI system needs human inputs to provide relevant results. You do not have to know Java, C++, or CSS to be a rater. In fact, neither you need an IT degree nor require any specialized equipment. Your phone/laptop and a high-speed internet connection are all you need to get started. The guidelines and study material are your bible that will help you survive this job.
This job is a blessing in disguise for people who like to scroll and surf the internet all day. They will base your job as a rater on your analytical and research skills. It involves perceptive work. You will analyze webpages based on quality, accuracy, and relevancy. Your primary tasks will involve URL rating, Side by Side tasks, Experimental Tasks, Needs Met Tasks, and others. Interacting with the AI system is just like you giving your opinions about an issue to your friend. The only difference is that this time a pillar of guidelines will support your perceptions and that you will get paid for speaking your mind. Your ratings and comments will work as feedback for search engines to improve their algorithms.
The support team of Telus is very cooperative and will readily help you in times of need. If you find things going out of hand, you can always reach out to forums on Telus and other platforms where other raters interact with each other.
