外围体育投注Hello, I work for a shipping company and I have a few deaf customers. I write down my questions but I would like to do more to make it as simple as anyone else. Can someone help me create a list with pictures of the sign? I will pay you for your time, I don’t have much to give but I understand this is asking a lot from someone I don’t know. I want to also send this to the other managers so they can help their customers. The words most used are:

外围体育投注Domestic? International? Your phone number? Your address? Receivers address? Drop off? Paying to ship? What is inside the box? Value? When do you need the package to get there? QR code? Hello Please Thank you Have a nice day

New interpreter here and I’ve just been practicing in my free time and came across this phrase. What would be the best interpretation for it? I thought of something like MEAN TO ME, CRUEL TO ME, THEY NICE? NOT but none of those feel like the best fit. What have you used when this phrase has come up?

外围体育投注I’ve been a certified freelance interpreter since I graduated from my ITP in 2015. The business side of this profession has honestly been one of the most grueling aspects. Researching now and trying to teach myself how to be a more savvy FL interpreter to try to make this profession financially make sense. Is anyone familiar with section 199 deduction, ie. qualified business income (QBI) deduction of 20%. Does this apply to us?

Thanks in advance and curious how everyone else in this field is doing with the current climate. I have had days of optimism with transitioning to remote work and moments of sheer panic that the work is just not coming in. I would love to have an honest conversation about how this is impacting all of us.

外围体育投注Take care! 🤟🏽

I graduated from my ITP (4 year program that got me my bachelors degree) in May during the pandemic. I didn’t even know if I was going to be able to graduate and get my k-12 interpreting license (for Ohio) until the end of April because everything came to a standstill. Finally we were given the go ahead and I successfully got my degree and was approved for the license.

I want a school position eventually but there’s too much in the air right now. Besides, I needed a job and couldn’t wait till fall. No agencies were hiring due to the pandemic in my area, so I went for VRS. I did the interview and screening. I waited 4 weeks before I heard back and finally was offered a job. I started in mid June.

I had some experience from my ITP because we had to do clinical hours and from my final practicum interpreting in a school. I had people tell me “your first interpreting job is VRS? Good luck”, “I would never recommend a new interpreter to VRS” “good luck to ya” and so on with good intentions. And now I see why they say that. It’s not the interpreting itself that makes it difficult, it’s the variety, the quick pace, being berated for no reason, being yelled at because you didn’t know how to pronounce a name that was spelled out, being sexually harassed- I have been harassed a couple of times and had to report it already (I’m a small, 22yo female)-, going above and beyond in a call to be told “fuck you” when the call didn’t go how they wanted...

This is a lot to be thrown into. My receptive skills have increased by a lot already and my vocabulary had expanded a ton. And I love interpreting, asl, and the deaf community, but I don’t think VRS is conducive to a life long career for me. Most of the time, calls are good and people are friendly, but the bad ones are the ones that stick out unfortunately. I can see how interpreters become jaded now and I don’t want that to happen to me.

I’m going to be working from home full-time as a educational interpreter. I’ve done about six months of work in-person part time as well as two years in an ITP. Do you have any advice that might help me as I start working from home that you wish you had known right away? Thanks for your help! :)

外围体育投注Any last minute advice for the NIC Performance? I’m running those illustrative behaviors over and over. Also practicing a few voicing videos.

外围体育投注Still unsure about the whole setup. Not the order or tasks, but rather what it will look like on the screen. I’m not a super fast reader, so if there’s a long paragraph, my prep time might be lacking 😬

UPDATE Test is done. Whew! Prep work paid off. There was only one interpreting scenario that I did poorly on. I feel very confident about the other four. The ethical portion....well, I did what I did. Not sure if I structured my responses the way they would want them, but I can’t make any changes now. Overall, I feel satisfied with my performance. I just hope it’s enough. Admin said results would still take a couple of months. 🤞
