As the summer break is fast approaching, you’ll want to spend time with family and friends. It always helps to have a little extra spending money for such evenings out or other special events. A good way to earn money and have the freedom to visit with loved ones is to find something that enables you to work at home. Transcribing may be your perfect solution.
What should I transcribe?Knowing what to transcribe is not difficult these days. Most professionals today would rather record their notes by voice than in writing. However, records from such professionals as doctors and lawyers need to be in writing for future reference. This is where transcribers come in. The professional will provide you with a recording of his or her notes, whether patient or client records, and you will listen to the recording and put the words in writing, exactly as they have been recorded.
Where to find work?Transcription services can be found online or in your local phone directory. All you need to do is hunt, call and ask if they are hiring. They will most likely give you a brief test to make sure you can correctly hear and transcribe a typical recording. Then, they will give you all the details of their work-at-home program and you are set to start earning some extra money. You’ll want to practice transcribing by concentrating on the given piece. Create a focused setting where you can study and enjoy what feels natural to absorb and explore.
Pour in your effortsYou could also speak with other students and show them how dictating all their notes and thoughts during vacation can save them time and allow them to spend time with their friends and family. They can then send their recordings to a transcriber and have them ready when it’s time to return to school. In this way, everybody wins because they get their notes and important thoughts recorded and you earn extra cash. It is by far one of the easiest and best ways to fill your pockets during the summer break.
