Tasks and Jobs

How do I get jobs?

Once you have passed the setting test, the first jobs are automatically available for you. The more jobs you succeed, the higher your star rating and more of a variety of jobs are offered.

How does the internal evaluation system work?

The internal evaluation system on Mylittlejob is subject to an algorithm. This takes into account the number, the quality and the evaluation of the jobs completed by you. In addition, your personal assessment includes whether you have jobs expired. This is only tolerated once. Second time a job is missed, you will be excluded from participating on the platform.

Does Mylittlejob influence the individual jobs?

All jobs visible are posted by companies not Mylittlejob. We assume no responsibility for the description, deadline or compensation of each job nor the job itself. Companies rate the results you submit and any request for revision is triggered by the company posting the job.

There is no file attached to the job. What to do?

In rare cases, clients do forget to attach the relevant files. Please, ignore those jobs and do not start working on them or cancel them right away. Our system will detect this and reach out to the clients automatically. Please, excuse any inconvenience.

What happens if I miss a deadline?

If you do not do a job in time, your rating will be reduced by one star. If you miss a second deadline, you will be excluded from participating in the Academic Workforce on Mylittlejob.

Which job should I take?

Which job should I take?

May I cancel a job I have already started working on?

You may cancel an accepted job within 10 minutes of this acceptance. Make sure to quickly check whether you are able to submit a result in accordance with the deliverables in those 10 minutes before actually starting to work on the result itself.

Why do I see less jobs than others?

This may be due to the fact that your fellow students have a higher rating, or jobs are currently better matched to other students profile.

Can I upload more than one file as a result?

You may attach several documents when handing in your result.

What happens if my results do not meet the deliverables?

If you submit a job that does not meet the criteria in the briefing, the client has the choice between a bad rating for you or the rejection of the job. In the case of a rejection, you will not receive any compensation. A poor rating will be rewarded, but will affect your overall profile. Please keep in mind the better rating you can accept better remunerated jobs. A refusal or a bad evaluation can be circumvented by paying careful attention to the job briefing.

My results were rejected - why?

If you submit a job that does not meet the deliverables, your job will be rejected. In order for a job to be accepted, it must fulfill all deliverables contained in the briefing. This also includes the required file format. If your job has been rejected, although you are sure you have met the deliverables, you can contact us. We will check this for you and credit your merit.

Am I guaranteed that my work will not be used after rejection?

You are working for big name companies, who are obliged to not use your work if it has been rejected and you have not received any payment for it. Once the job has been rejected, it is automatically put back on the platform. The company then receives the work by the second student, at the latest. You will not be able to work on the same job again.

Why can I only have five jobs submitted but not approved at the same time?

You can actively edit only one job at a time, so you can concentrate on it. The maximum number of active jobs and waiting for release jobs for the students with a five star rating is three. The more stars you have accumulated, the more jobs you may have waiting for release at the same time [5 stars / 5 jobs] [more jobs] [more jobs].

How many jobs can I accept at the same time?

You may only work on one task at a time. Once you submitted it you may work on other jobs.

Why can't I see who is doing the job?

Some companies may remain anonymous. Some others have public profiles.

What are deliverables?

Deliverables summarise what the key criteria are a result will be judged by. The deliverables are the basis for any rejection of results - so before you submit your result go through the deliverables again and make sure you thought of all of those and considered them regarding result.

May I produce results in a different language?

It is not a translation job unless it explicitly states it in the description.

My results have yet to be approved? How long does it take?

Unfortunately, we don't have an exact answer. Sometimes company's are too busy to review results. However, if it takes several weeks, we can contact the client for you. Please send us an email at

Why can't I see any translation jobs?

Normally translation jobs are for students with a high rating. It is important for companies that the language test verifies the students’ language knowledge.
