Attention: Horse Racing Fans!

The new online social handicapping platform ThoroBid (https://thorobid.com/) is looking to hire a Data Entry Clerk to cover the races on live racing dates of the 2013 Keeneland Fall Meet, and beyond. Work from home on your own computer; 35-40 hours/week. Current hours approximately 10:30am - 6pm Eastern Wednesdays through Sundays. High-speed internet access and ability to watch races live (on TV or online) is a requirement; significant racing/handicapping knowledge is a plus. Position open to U.S. residents 18 or older only.

Ah, man- that would have been perfect for me- except the weekdays are a problem, darn it!

Too bad it not part time for the weekends- but sounds like a great job for whoever gets it!

Yep, darn that horse racing for taking place on weekdays, right? :D

This is a new company, and growing. Perhaps there will be other job opportunities in the future. Thanks for your reply!

Your welcome, and thank you- look forward to perhaps something that can work for both of us in the future.

If you're paying a decent salary, you shouldn't have a problem finding someone who meets your specs. Good luck.

I'd say Taz would be interested......but the problem would be working HOME from his computer~ :shock:

Right Taz? :D

This is probably a hoax. I responded to the e-mail listed and never got an answer. You would think even if the position was filled they would give you a courtesy reply.

Possibly, but over the last few years of getting laid off, I've applied for 150+ jobs/postings and received a response to approximately 20, so it's not that uncommon to not hear back :D

Also, the original post is only 2 days old, so they may not have had a chance to respond.
