Transcription is a popular way for people to make money these days, and if you are very good at it, you can earn a decent income. That’s especially true if you focus on a certain type of transcription like legal transcription or academic research transcription.
However, there may be some other benefits to academic research transcription for those looking to get their doctorate in any number of fields.
In fact, you’ll be working to earn some money to help you pay for things like school and rent while you boost your skills that will help you get a job down the road.
Use this guide to learn more about academic research transcription and how it can help you with your doctoral studies.
Boost Your Work Experience
For many doctoral students it can be hard to come by relevant work experience. After all, if you’ve been extremely focused on getting your degrees, you may only have had summer jobs or internships. While these can look wonderful on your resume, they aren’t quite the same as paid positions.
When you do transcription work you’ll be able to put that on your resume when you apply for jobs right out of school. Armed with your doctoral degree and relevant work experience it should be much easier for you to find a job than many other people.
In addition to related work experience you will also have a skill that few people possess right out of school or ever. The ability to transcribe written work or audio can be a real benefit for you when you’re applying for those first jobs out of school and it can really help set you apart from the other candidates with similar experience.
Benefit From Field-Related Transcription
Transcription work that you do in academic areas will also be related to your field, so you’ll be learning as you work. You’ll need to be listening to or reading the content that relates to your work and field of study, likely from people with lots of experience in that particular area.
