Different Types of Typing Jobs
Just like the term “typing jobs” can be very broad so are data entry and transcription. I’ll give you the basics but just remember you’ll be doing specifics when you land a job!
Data entry is simply taking data provided by a company and entering it into some sort of system or spreadsheet. This could be entering payroll items into a system for employers, catalog items into a system for retailers, and compiling lists of customer interactions for businesses, just to name a few.
The type of data entry job you get just depends on the industry you’re working with.
Most data entry jobs do not require a college education. You will need to have good communication skills, grammar, and of course, computer experience.
Transcription is another type of work from home job that is interchangeably used with data entry and typing jobs. At the most basic level transcription is simply typing audio versions of documents. This could be lectures, workshops, conference calls, podcasts, and more.
With work at home transcription you are working off of recorded audio and no college degree is usually required for work from home transcription jobs.
