Are you looking for a flexible work-at-home job that does not involve making sales calls? If so, becoming a transcriptionist with GMR Transcription is something you should think about.
Transcription is one of the work at home opportunities that anyone can easily get started with. The opportunity is viable either as a side job or even a full-time job. Whether you’ve been laid off or are looking for an easy way of making money, transcription is an excellent choice.
You do not need any prior experience to join our team. If you have a keen listening ear and an excellent understanding of the English language, you are a good candidate for a transcription job.
The freedom of working from home is an advantage to many people. The flexibility of working when you want and determining your income are the two main reasons why most people love online transcription jobs.
Read on for four tips that will help you get started with working with GMR Transcription as a freelance transcriptionist.
First off, you need a good computer with MS Word. The computer should have a high-speed internet connection as you would need to download transcription files from the GMR website. Some of the files can be quite large and you do not want them to take ages to download.
Apart from a computer, you need a good set of headphones. We recommend over-the-ear headphones. They are the best for noise canceling and eliminating misheard words. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on them, you can find some relatively inexpensive ones on Amazon.
The last piece of equipment you’ll want is a foot pedal. This is not required but is highly recommended. It plugs into your computer and allows you to control the audio without using your hands. This will increase your productivity and as a result, increase the size of your paycheck.
There are many online resources that you can use to improve your typing speed. Check the free typing lessons at TypingTest.com. The lessons will not only help you improve your typing speed but also accuracy.
With GMR Transcription, you do not need to have any experience in transcription to join the team. However, having an idea of what you will be expected to do can make your transition to the work at home opportunity easier.
Although not required, you can get training from a transcription course online. The training will equip you with the skills you need to become a successful transcriptionist. However, completing one of these courses does not guarantee that GMR Transcription will hire you. You would still need to transcribe a test file and pass it (based on accuracy and style formatting).
