In recent months, NCRA has launched a new website: CareersinCourtReporting.com. On this site, you’ll find information about the court reporting field as a career option.
The Start Here section includes FAQs and career choices within the profession. Website visitors can learn more about what’s entailed if they choose a career as a court reporter, freelance reporter, or captioner. The site also provides a list of court reporting programs organized by state, along with their websites, for additional information. There are also links to educational videos from professional court reporters, including a series called “What’s in my bag?”
The website is a great resource for high school and college students, as well as those who are looking for a career change. If you’re already in the court reporting profession and volunteer your time at school or job fairs, consider introducing the site as a resource. Mentioning the website allows people to learn even more when they have time to research the field. If you have a website or LinkedIn profile, consider adding a link to help prospective students and future court reporters find more information about the profession.
