What are Work at Home Data Entry Jobs? Data Entry Jobs – You may have already heard of this but have not really understood what they are all about. These are one of the many different careers you can find online. I have a lot of friends who work with data entry jobs and they have found it very profitable in doing so. They also say it does not require much thinking compared to other jobs that can be found online.
Hector, my neighbor has three data entry jobs and to my surprise he still has all the time to hang around with his friends and still relax with some of his hobbies daily. I went for a walk with him one afternoon and asked him how he does all this – THREE WORK AT HOME DATA ENTRY JOBS PLUS DAILY HOBBIES AND HANG OUTS.
When I was asking him he was laughing while telling me that a data entry job is very simple and they are not overly time demanding. He began to tell me about the job.
Data Entry is merely the method of entering of information into different electronic formats. This may be done by using word processing or data processing software. “Well, the catch here is to be familiar with several types of software so you do all your tasks easy and breezy.”
I thought it sounded technical. He went on and discussed that experience is not really a big deal in this realm. You can learn it as you are actually doing it. Aside from the software familiarization, you also need to be reasonably fast in typing since you are going to transcribe information.
He went on and continued that the requirements for getting the job are simple. It does not need any formal training. The technical part is only with the software familiarization. You can also learn this in about four to five days depending on your discipline.
Hector enumerated to me the requirements of the job:
a.) A high school diploma or GED equivalent
b.) Software Knowledge
c.) 60 words in one minute – the required typing speed
The reason why typing speed is very important here is because this is the bread and butter part of the job. You type a lot daily. If you still are learning the different software systems then you can be a typist or keyboardist first.
Since I was getting intrigued by this work at home data entry jobs, after the walk with Hector I Googled it and found out that there are many companies online that offer the data entry opportunities. Since I wanted to try it, here is what I did. If you are interested in getting the job, do the same because this is what I used and I actually got three employers calling me for an interview.
1.) Created my Resume : I put in my resume only my typing experiences and software knowledge aside from my personal information. I was honest in my details and did not fake anything. I passed it in with the other requirements. Of course, I doubled checked my resume and requirements before passing them to my prospective employer.
2.) The Interview : Luckily, I was called by two employers for an interview. They asked me how much I knew about the job and I was transparent enough to tell them that I heard it from a friend. I shared with them my knowledge of the software that I was required to learn. I know two main software programs and then I also showed them my speed in typing.
These are the two steps I used and I got hired by two work at home data entry job employers. I realized it really pays to be honest.
If you are planning to get work at home data entry jobs then try the two steps above, you will be pleased you did.
