I provide professional transcription services to clients.
I work at home and my days begin at about 6am. I get up, take a shower, do my makeup, and get dressed for my day. I get recordings sent to me and it’s my job to enter the file information into the database, route the audios to the transcriptionists, who have a set turnaround time to transcribe the files and send the files back for me to proofread, or in my business we call it QA for Quality Assurance, and send the files back to the clients.
Having a close eye and being able to focus, and strong proofreading skills.
Here's the first step for everyone
Not being scared to try things you wouldn't expect to relate to your major. Also, there may be job fields that do not exist now that may exist later on, so be open to whatever comes your way.
