    I want to add the MTurk work I have done to my resume, and was looking for suggestions on wording, and descriptions of the work. I guess I am hoping that people who have done this as well will post what they put down on their own resume.

    I used to work in IT but have been unemployed for a couple years and I really need something recent on my resume, so I am looking for any advice or suggestions in that regard.

    TIA

    Contract worker for various businesses, reponsibilities include fact-checking, transcription, online research, (etc. etc. etc.)

    Just a quick idea to get you started - good luck!

    I scribbled down a description I'd seen when I first started turking. Wish I'd made note of who said it. Anyway, the person described themself as a self-employed crowdsourcing microcontractor. It was said tongue-in-cheek, but I thought it was pretty good.

    That sounds great! I needed that idea too for my gaps in my resume.
