4. Medical Transcriptionist/Transcriber
Don’t mix medical transcriptionist jobs with data entry jobs. It is because transcriptionist jobs require completely different skill sets than a regular data entry work.
In this industry there is a huge shortage of qualified Medical Transcriptionists.
Hospitals and Insurance companies are in great need of transcribers who can document patient’s health report and other research data.
So a transcriber requires good listening skills, knowledge of medical jargons and terminology, fast typing skills and at least two years of prior experience in this field.
But you need some money to invest in buying computer hardware and software along with a transcriber unit.
Medical transcriptionists earn $40 – $50 per hour with an earning potential of $65,000 a year. This income is way more than a regular data entry operator.
