The Superior Court of California, County of Contra Costa
is seeking Court Reporters. Court Reporters fill a critical role in the justice system: They provide verbatim transcripts of judicial proceedings and ensure that nothing compromises their accuracy. Court reporters are present in court hearings, trials, and other litigation-related sessions, such as depositions. But opportunities in this field go beyond the courtroom.
The ideal candidate will have knowledge of legal and basic medical terminology with effective short-hand reporting techniques, typing at least 200 words per minute with 97.5% accuracy. The Court Reporter must professionally conduct themselves, without bias or reaction to what is said while performing their duties.
*Hiring Bonus: $30,000 ($15,000 upon hiring, $15,000 upon successful completion of probation)
