What Exactly is Wonder?
AskWonder is an online service available to clients who need to hire researchers to expound on information by offering many different perspectives and viewpoints all from reliable sources. The information is usually presented to the researcher in the form of a question, which really has no definitive yes or no answer.
The company was founded just this year in 2015 by a group of friends who were passionate about research and wanted to seek out others who felt the same. Their goal is to make online learning human again by incorporating the mentoring factor back into it.
Is This Opportunity Open Worldwide?
The good news is that AskWonder doesn't just hire in the United States, but in several other countries as well. However, the application page does explain that they cannot accept people living in New York, Massachusetts, or California due to some state regulations.
What Do Researchers at Wonder Do?
As an online researcher for AskWonder, you will be compiling information to a question presented by the client. When new questions come in, they are posted on the company's inside dashboard with the pricing. Pricing will vary, and you can accept the questions you want to work on.
Your job function will be to try and briefly explain the answer in a summary, while citing the online resources you used. Most searches take between 15 to 20 minutes, depending upon the complexity of the question. Each question will need to have at least 5 reliable, well-documented resources.
