Court reporting is the best career out there!

This screen is annoying when I’m trying to get home early from an early job! But at least I still get to leave early : D

Reason #19 why court reporting/stenography is one of the best jobs out there:  You don’t have to work 9-5 from Monday to Friday; instead, you get to work flexible hours and even take your work home to complete! 😀

That’s me today.  At the time of writing, it is Thursday, February 13 at 2:47 p.m. and I just finished a job this morning.  It was supposed to be on from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., but the hearing concluded within 30 minutes of starting.  Hahaha.  So nice!

I got to leave by 11 a.m. once my silly laptop decided to finish updating everything upon its shutdown and thus hindering me another 15 minutes from home.  I love short days like this.  And it’s cool too because I just received an e-mail that the transcript is going to be ordered.  $$$.  It isn’t much, but at least there’s an order. ^_^ So now until the end of the day (before I head out to tonight’s coring :D), I can sit at home in my comfy PJs, perched in front of my computer while jamming to songs on the radio, and edit this transcript.  What a life. ^_^

    • Hi Tiffany! Thanks for the question and for dropping by my blog. 🙂

      Transcripts are not always ordered. A case or hearing will be held because a panel needs to make a decision on a certain matter. In that sense, they do need a court reporter at the scene to record the proceedings. However, the deciding factor of whether they require a transcript to be ordered differs between different cases and hearings. Does that help? If not, I can explain further. 🙂

  1. Lovely post! Any one pursuing a career in Court Reporting would find it very relaxing to read through this post. The freelance court reporter business is booming, and there has been a considerable increase in the stats. Also, court reporter back office support services are surfacing, so if people want to start a court reporting business, that’s feasible too. I recommend CRC National for their services.
