How to Work From Home as a Transcriptionist

How to Work From Home as a TranscriptionistBy Sheeroh

Digitization is gradually taking over everything and transforming the manner in which things are done. Most of all, it is taking them online. We are banking, shopping, dating, and socializing online. Better still, people are working online!

Transcription is one of the available work from home jobs whereby freelancers are converting their skills into dollars.

Here is everything you need to know about online transcription jobs.

What is it?

In the simplest form, transcription is the process by which live or recorded audio is converted into an electronic document. Better put, it is writing down speech. The audio can be a lecturer speaking, an interview between two people, a sermon, podcast, webinar, or just any form of speech.

Why convert these recordings to text? You may ask. Because some professionals are too busy to type their work they use the help of transcribers. Again, people with hearing complications may require knowledge such as that from lectures. In addition, these people need to understand movies; and again, transcribers come in to help. Also, you may have recorded a very helpful video on social media marketing or another topic, but for some people, such as employees, may not be able to watch it in the office. Therefore, transcripts come in handy. (more…)

8 Places to Find Work-at-Home Opportunities in Your Own Town

8 Places to Find Work-at-Home Opportunities in Your Own TownBy Diana Schneidman

One of the obvious benefits of working at home is that it doesn’t matter where your employing company is located. You have a worldwide market for your services.

Given that there are certain benefits to having international opportunities, why would you prefer to work for a local company?

There are several pluses to working locally even if you do the actual work from a desk right in your spare bedroom.

The first advantage is that it may be easier to land the job. You may already have personal connections with the hiring manager. Even if you don’t have an “in” right now, it may still be easier to set your sights on what you want and go after it.

The second advantage is that you may be more effective on the job. You have easier access to your supervisor and coworkers. You may be able to attend occasional staff meetings and trainings.

The third advantage is that you may be able to develop personal relationships with coworkers in your company. One downside to working out of your home is that it can be lonely. You can work in the same position for years without developing ties to others. If you are the type of person who relishes friendships, being local can facilitate meeting coworkers for lunch or happy hour. (more…)

Working from Home as a General Transcriptionist – Interview with Lisa Mills

Work from Home as a General TranscriptionistTell us about yourself and your work at home journey. 

Over the years, I’ve had a variety of work at home jobs. I’ve worked as a freelance writer, sold antiques and collectibles on eBay, day traded on the stock market, and operated an online used book business. I’m currently working as a general transcriptionist, and I publish a work at home website, Work at Home Mom Revolution, for moms seeking work from home jobs.

Although my work at home journey began while I was still married, my need to work from home kicked into high gear when my husband and I separated back in the early 2000s. I desperately wanted to be home for my three girls during this tough time in their lives, and working from home was key to achieving that.

At the time, I had an online used book business, but I soon discovered that alone was not going to sustain me and my children. That’s when I began looking into transcription as a possible telecommute career.

How did you get into transcription and do you need any special skills or training?

I was taking online classes for medical transcription through Career Step and was doing well, but I had months to go before I would complete the course, and because of my change in circumstances, I needed to make money immediately. (more…)
