Collecting data from college websites
Reply to: email@example.com
We will be conducting surveys of faculty and need someone to collect names, email addresses, and phone numbers of faculty (not staff–just faculty) from about 100 colleges that we have identified. This job will require going to the website of each community college, finding a directory, and transferring into Excel the college name, name of faculty, department, email address, and phone number of faculty members.
Note: this job will require investigative skills as the location of directories and ability to obtain the above information varies from college website to college website. In addition, this information CANNOT always simply be copied/pasted from the website into Excel. Not infrequently it will require manual input because directories are not consistent from college website to college website and many directories include staff in addition to faculty (which will need to be weeded out).
A short telephone interview will be conducted which will serve as an opportunity for us to explain the project in more detail and also to hear from you. Possible test run with around 10 colleges to gauge the project. This job will pay $700.
Experience: anyone who can quickly transfer data from webpages to Excel and who is willing to stick with this project until it is completed.
Timeline: We’d like to have this done within 1-2 weeks.
Additional note: We need this work started ASAP and will be conducting phone interviews tomorrow, Friday 1/27.
