If you’re reading this article, chances are, you’re on the look-out for a remote job that doesn’t require you to be on the phone. Work at home jobs are becoming popular now, but most of them seem to be phone jobs. If you’re a mother with small children, have noisy pets, or live in a very noisy neighborhood, phone jobs may not be ideal for you. These are some of the reasons why many people prefer non-phone jobs. Of course, then we have the introverts who simply dislike talking on the phone constantly (like me) unless it’s a friend or family member. Whatever your reason for wanting a non-phone job may be, relax and browse through the following fifty list …
Transcription is basically turning an audio/video file into a written one. You simply listen to the audio, then type out what you hear. You must be fast at typing to make it worth your time. Now this one may not be the most ideal non-phone job when you have little kids running around, so always wait for a little quiet time to stay focused while working. Depending on the company you work for, rates could either be way too low or reasonable. Keep in mind that getting $50 per audio hour for example does NOT mean you’re getting $50 an hour. Think about the time it would take you to type, pause, listen, rewind, etc. An audio hour can take you anyway from 3 to 6 hours to transcribe it, depending on how fast or slow you are at typing. Some companies may require that you be experiences before hiring you, but there are many who hire on entry level. Most of them require a transcription evaluation before getting hired. Try practising typing as much as you can if this is the career path you may go for. Here’s a site that may help you with practising: Listen and Write
