How General Transcription Rescued Me From Temporary Insanity

vernette
Eight years ago I was frustrated because I had a toddler and newborn to take care of and needed a piece of both worlds, to be able to take care of my children and make money at the same time. Prior to giving birth to my second son, I worked as a Customer Service Representative for several Fortune 500 companies, but had to give that up when I relocated to New York from Florida. At that time the Customer Service Network (Arise.com) that I contracted with did not have the capabilities to connect me to their VOIP service in another state. So I became desperate to find a new avenue that would enable me to work from home and take care of my newborn and toddler. I needed to supplement my spouse’s income because times were rough. So I did some research online and found out that Medical Transcription was one of the best ways, especially for a stay at home mom to work from home. What made it so attractive was the fact that it was a career… something I could do for a long time because the demand for Medical Transcriptionists was much greater than the supply. I...

General Transcription Jobs??

vernette
Does any know how i can get into general transcription & work from home without starting my own business?? I don’t want to do medical transcription because it sounds like a lot of terminology to learn. I can type 60 wpm with few mistakes. (I know this is the wrong category but it seems to get more answers.) You might want to check at your local College or University job center. They might have a bulletin board or online area where you can watch for typing transcription opportunities.

anyone who has taken a medical transcription course/ is a medical transcriptionist?

vernette
i’m going to be taking the online medical transcription course from canscribe career center soon. I’d like to know how challenging you found it, and anything else you would like to say about it. i would also like to know how much you like your job now, whether it is what you thought it would be, what type of facility you work in etc.. i’m interested in working from home once i have some experience under my belt and i would like to know if i would get paid more or less in general for the same amount of work. any information you can give me would be great! I would mostly just like to know what it’s like and if paying the 8 grand for the course is worth what i will get out of it in the end 🙂 To be honest, that course is very good, but not worth 8 thousand dollars. Look into Meditec (www.meditec.com). Their course is on special this month for around $1600 and they’ve been in business over 40 years and have an excellent internship program. Yes, I found learning MT very challenging. I breezed through the anatomy, terminology, and book work. However,...

The following is an old post…a question that was asked by a physician with responses to the question below. Click on the “Comment” link below this post to see 9 responses to this question.

In general or Alabama since this is where I live, but just in general would be fine too. *Accounting *Child Development *Cosmetology *Electronic Engineering Technology *Esthetics Technology *Medical Transcription *Nail Technology *Office Administration *Practical Nursing With the babybommers getting up there in years I would put Practical Nursing at the top of the list.

Working Moms Deserve More Credit Than Stay At Home Moms

vernette
Do you think the lifestyle of a stay-at-home mom is easier than that of a working mom? Do you think that working moms deserve more credit than stay at home moms?  Maybe it’s the other way around. Well, both mothers work very hard.  Is it really better to stay at home with children rather than working to contribute to the family’s income? So let’s dig a little deeper and locate all the pluses and minuses for moms staying at home and raising children or working outside the home. According to Marty Nemko,”The case for working outside the home, full-time, is strengthened by my point that 24/7 moms often are WORSE moms–becoming the co-dependent helicopter moms who inhibit their kids’ sense of efficacy, lose their tempers with their children more easily because they’re with them all the time, or become poor role models because indeed, many moms say their brains “turn to mush” from being a stay-at-home mom. Finally, the kids don’t get to see mom as more than just a housekeeper and mother.” Is it really true that the children of stay at home moms see their mom as just a housekeepr and a mother?  Stay at home mothers are...

Are There Really Any Legit Typing And Data Entry Work At Home Jobs?

vernette
I hate to tell you this, but 98% of all online data entry jobs from home are scams.  I’ve fallen prey in the past to ads with titles like, “Data entry jobs from home,” “Home based data entry jobs,” etc.  The real work at home jobs out there are for skilled workers, jobs like general transcription, engineer, web designer, bookkeeper, customer service representative, call center customer service representative working for fortune 500 companies, medical transcriptionist, etc. So what I’m saying is, in order for you to position yourself to land a real homebased job, you must have a specialized skill.  If you insist on looking for data entry jobs because that’s the only kind of work that you think you can perform from home, then i must give you one piece of advice. You can use the search engines Bing.com, Google.com, etc and type in words like, “freelance data entry operator,” “data entry telecommute,” etc.  Don’t just type in the words, “work at home data entry,” or “work from home data entry.”  These two latter phrases will only lead you to scams.  Once you avoid the words “work at home,” “work from home,” etc you might stand a better chance...
