Working at Home in Data Entry.

Streamlining offices and making the task of word processing easier is something most organizations are constantly looking for these days. It’s no wonder, what with the focus being placed on information these days. This is perhaps one of the biggest causes behind the boom currently being experienced in the field of data entry at home.

As the name itself implies, the work of a data entry employee typically includes setting up and preparing reports, mailing labels, letters, and other textual material. Data entry jobs are often entry-level and so those holding this position may begin by addressing envelopes, typing headings on form letters, or preparing standard forms on typewriters or computers. As they gain more experience they may be assigned to complete more complicated tasks that require a higher degree of accuracy and independent judgment.

For working at home, an average data entry employee must word processing equipment in order to do the job professionally. In a modern context, this translates to a personal computer with an ink-jet or laser printer, though some companies may allow their employees to make use of a part of a larger computer system. This typically would include a keyboard, video display terminal, and a printer. Whatever the case, the word processor is used to record, edit, store, and revise letters, reports, memos, forms, statistical tables, and other printed materials.

In addition to completing all the duties mentioned above, a work at home data entry job may also include other office tasks, such as answering telephones, operating copiers, filing, or using other office machines. There may be variation in job titles but the nature of the job remains essentially the same.

For example, many clerk typists are data entry employees who combine typing with filing, answering telephones, sorting mail, and other general office work. On the other hand, Note readers transcribe stenotype notes of court proceedings into standard formats.

    No. Of course not.

    If you think finding a ‘work from home’ job is easy then why would anyone go to college and work in an office?… Think about it.

    They’re all too good to be true. Otherwise we would all be doing that.

    Medical transcriptionist. Litsen to tapes of dictated medical charts and type them up using the software the company provides you with.
    Also, I sell items on EBay and on a local auction site. Most of my items comes from yards sales, flea markets, discount bins at local stores, etc. I sell larger items locally, less shipping charges etc. Most customers will gladly pick up the items. Sometimes I buy items from the local site just to sell on EBay. You can get the same type of information that some people offer for sale just by checking out the Ebay site for free!

    Honestly, I would not search for "work from home" at all because most companies advertising that are not legit.
    However, if you search for jobs by your area of interest, you may be able to find some that offer the option to
    work from home.

    No. You will get lots of scammers here, please don’t listen. However, at the same time, please don’t listen to the people saying they are ALL SCAMS. They are not ALL scams, just MOST of them are! I am a single mom of 2 girls who has tried over 15 opportunities in the course of 3 years so I have some great information for you on how to find a LEGIT way to work from home plus a list of top 10 work at home scams!

    People are looking for work from home and the biggest problem is they don’t understand that there really are NO WORK AT HOME JOBS. You will not find hourly pay from home. You can look forever, you’ll never find it. The only way to earn an income from home is to find a legit home business.

    Small home businesses have increased in the last 5 years by about 200%? People are really starting to realize that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. The best home businesses to start are those with a proven plan in place like Avon or Mary Kay however if you are like me, you are not interested in pushing products.

    Legitimate small home businesses should have a small costs involved but be careful, all the scams will be charging too so know the business. Talk to a REAL person and ask questions. Less than $500 to start is reasonable and I would stay away from those wanting $1000-$5000. If you are coming across places that say free then I would RUN don’t walk the other way! They never are in the end.

    After trying 15 things, I now work about 20-25 hours per week for a well known and respected company with amazing credentials. This company actually helps keep Americans Safe and Secure by offering Medical and Dental plans at affordable rates that anyone can afford. We also have SecureNet which helps Americans Protect their children in a program called National Child ID in partnership with the FBI. We also help Americans get back on top of their finances with Foreclosure Avoidance, Debt Relief, Credit Repair and more. We have over 10 programs ranging from $15 to only $40 a month per household which help Americans save many and stay safe. Americans have saved over 1 BILLION dollars with these plans.

    I started with this company 3 years ago and started making $500 a month within only a few months. That income has increased now to over $3000 a month which has been a blessing for my family. The best part is they have 401(k), direct deposit, life insurance and a benefits package from day one.

    There are NO products, NO hard selling or pushing, NO cold calling, NO home parties and NO telemarketing! That was VERY important to me. I absolutely love working with them and I can’t believe I am making what I am making and in so few hours per week. The neat thing is there are other people on your team that you work with so you are never alone even though you’re at home.

    I was a bit apprehensive at first because I know a lot of companies are not legit but this company’s credentials FAR SURPASSED any other home business I had ever seen. SOME of our NATIONAL partners and credentials are National Association of Dental Plans, Dunn and Bradstreet, BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU, Consumer Health Alliance, US Chamber of Commerce, Parent Magazine, US News and World Report, Dozens of Fortune 500 companies like Sears, Target, Walmart and Lenscrafters and Time Magazine. We are even currently being featured on WeTV, Lifetime and Oxygen. Most important, to solidify our legitimacy you’ll feel the utmost comfort in knowing that we are partnered with the FBI.

    No matter what you decide at least check it out, request an interview to get more information and at a MINIMUM read this list of top 10 work at home scams so you can protect yourself!

    10. Craft Assembly – 9. Medical Billing – 8. Email/Rebate Processing – 7. "A List of Companies Looking for Home workers!" – 6. "Just pay for and take this class first” Then we’ll give or find you a job! – 5. Envelope Stuffing – 4. "Turn Your Computer Into a Money-Making Machine!" – 3. Pyramid Schemes (this is NOT the same as Multi-Level Marketing MLM) – 2. Chain Letters/Emails ("Make Money Fast") – 1. Typing At Home / Data Entry (HUGE SCAM)

    As for those of you who say…..”I want to work from home but I don’t want to have to pay for anything”. Well, that’s great! But it will never happen. Let’s be honest, there is no such thing as a free lunch. If it is a true honest home business you need to expect to pay. Mr. Walt Disney didn’t start the Disney empire “without paying for anything”. Neither did Mr. Sam Walton, owner of Wal-Mart. (remember though, the costs should be LOW. DO NOT pay more than $200-$300 to start your home business. In fact, you should even pay less than that! )

    YAHOO Finance says that for every 1 Legit Home Business like this one, there are 57 scams.
