Freelance Court Reporter Resume Samples

A Freelance Court Reporter creates word-for-word transcriptions at trials, depositions, legal proceedings, and administrative hearings on a freelance basis. A well-written Freelance Court Reporter Resume indicates the following duties – providing captioning for television and real-time translation for the deaf and hard-of-hearing people at public events; attending depositions, hearings, proceedings that require written transcripts; capturing spoken dialogue with specialized equipment, reporting speakers’ identification and gestures; and reviewing notes that are taken. Another core duty is to provide real-time translation in classes and other public forums for the deaf.

The nature of the work demands the following skills – a strong ability to listen and understand whatever that is being said at the court or during proceedings; writing skills with extensive knowledge of grammar and vocabulary; the ability to understand written documents; high level of concentration; and attention to details with accuracy. While some court reports get a formal education from technical institutes that lead to a certificate or degree in court reporting, many others qualify for entry-level posts and gain skills with experience.
