Companies that Hire Transcriptionists to Work from Home
Are you an experienced Transcriber? Maybe you’re just looking to get into the field of transcription. If you’re not in yet, there is a great program/course recommended for this particular field called Career Step. I took this myself and would highly recommend to others looking to get into either Medical Transcription or Billing & Coding, both of which still maintain a very high need in the medical field online and offline. This course may be completed entirely online.
Below I’ve listed several companies offering work from home transcription positions, although most require you to have at least 1-2 yrs experience under your belt. I recommend scouring the companies web page before applying for positions just so you don’t miss any needed information regarding the requirements for each one.
In order to be productive, every transcriptionist needs a good headset and footpedal. The footpedal allows you to fast forward, rewind or play/pause the audio file you are transcribing. Most of these are plug and play using USB cables. This method is sooo much easier than trying to use your mouse to constantly repeat the audio. Take it from me, if you don’t have one, you’ll wish you did!
