SOHO Tips and Advice

Lionbridge is only interested in SERIOUS employees. Therefore, it might be a good idea to avoid telling the interviewer that you need to work from home because you have children. Some SOHO'ers have reported that they were turned down for this reason after being told that the Lionbridge interviewer didn't think they could focus on their job since their children were a priority. 

Much of the Practical portion of the exam does not necessary have one right or wrong answer. Lionbridge is instead looking for your reasoning skills and your ability to decipher the results of Internet search returns. SOHO'ers who are hired tend to be those who are familiar with the Internet and search engines and have a good understanding of the way that users locate information online. 

If you pass both parts of the test you may experience a delay before you can actually begin to work. Do not worry. This is normal as Lionbridge has hundreds of new hires and tasks to assign. Be patient. Do not pesture the hiring manager with phone calls or emails as this may cost you the opportunity to work for them. 

Lionbridge will probably ask for your bank account information and other personal information after they offer you employment. This is standard and nothing to be concerned about. Most Lionbridge employees are paid via direct deposit so your account information will be needed so they can deposit your earnings. You will also be required to complete a W-9 and timesheet.
