Recently several people have asked me about the Leapforce qualification exam so I thought I’d write a short post to address this kind of question. I can tell from what people are asking that the exam is very different now from the one I took 2 years ago, so my experience taking the exam probably won’t help any of you taking it now. When I took the exam I was tested on only one type of evaluation task, and I don’t think they even use that task anymore, at least I haven’t seen it in over a year. So the best I can do is give you general advice.
What Leapforce is testing is how well you can follow instructions, and how well you can understand and apply the guidelines when evaluating a landing page or website. Therefore, the best advice I can give is to study the guidelines, go over the examples they provide until you understand what they want. Do not try to apply your own criteria when making an evaluation—Leapforce wants everyone evaluating the same way so everyone must use the guidelines and not their own opinions.
It may seem like a lot of studying that you aren’t being paid for, but if you enjoy doing this type of work it will pay off in the end. Leapforce pays the best of the work-at-home opportunities I’ve researched. It’s good to have a back-up source of income when Leapforce doesn’t have enough work to keep you busy, but I still rely on my Leapforce income a lot.
