$3.30 Cha Ching :) My 3rd Job

August 27th, 2008 at 07:47 pm

I am now proud to say that I hold three jobs. Smile My first job (the one that pays the bills) is of course the one at the oil and gas company.

My second job is the 3 1/2 hours on Friday afternoons at the gym.

My third job, which I just started today, is with ChaCha as an expeditor. In slightly over 90 minutes I made $3.30. I know, not a whole lot of money - but it's money I wouldn't have otherwise made in that time period. Smile

I wish we had Firefox on our computers at work so I could do some ChaCha during lunchtime.

My goal is to make $20/week. So, that translates to roughly an hour a day. If I'm able to put in an extra two hours on the weekends, then I could make up to $100/month (give or take).


Remember my savings goal of a Cruise in 2010? Well, I realized today that I'll turn 35 in December of 2010. So I've decided that it will be my 35th Birthday Cruise. I'm thinking that for the next couple of birthdays/Christmases I'll let everyone know that any cash gifts I receive, half of them will go towards my Cruise fund. Big Grin

    What exactly do you do as a Cha Cha guide?

  2. frugaltexan75 Says:

    As a ChaCha guide you answer questions that people send in via text or voice mail. The questions range from asking directions to asking who was the first president.

    I'm not a guide. I am an Expeditor, which is a new position. What I do, is format the questions that come in so that they are as clear as possible and also check for grammar and spelling errors. Then I decide what the best category is for the question, and pass it on to a guide.

    My part can take as little as 12 seconds up to a couple minutes (some questions require a lot of cleanup!)

    The guide who answers the actual question will take around 2 - 4 minutes, although if the question doesn't have an easy answer, it could take longer.

    Yay, another ChaCha-er! lol.

    I was wondering how the questions got cleaned up, with the new format and all. I like it better already... much easier to understand once they get to us guides!

    Yeah, some of the questions when they come have a lot of extra filler or mixed up words. The ones that take me less than 20 seconds are the ones that are already in the correct format and are easy to figure out the category. I like those ones. Big Grin
