Jobs from Home
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to work from home?
I think just about everyone has thought that at some point or another.
We will show you how you can do exactly that.
You won’t find any scams or false promises here, just straight facts and real jobs.
We also have sections on freelancing and work from home business ideas but this section – right here – is all about jobs.
Normal, regular jobs. No products to buy, no training course required, no entry fees, no secret to share, no sales pitch whatsoever – just a job description that tells you exactly what the work entails and precisely how much you’ll be paid.
There are many advantages to working from home; for one thing you don’t have to battle the traffic every day and it’s cheaper on fuel too. Plus it allows you to spend more time with the people you love. So all in all it’s makes more sense economically and it’s better for your personally by affording you more time and less stress.
Another considerable advantage, especially in this day and age, is that it allows you to be location independent. All over the world you hear stories about people who just up and move one day to the other side of the country, or to another country entirely, because that’s where the jobs are. You may well be considering such a move yourself purely out of necessity, but it’s not always that easy. You may still have family you want to be close to, friends and neighbors you care about or children in school that you don’t want to uproot. Or you may want to move but you have a house you’re trying to sell.
The good news is that you don’t have to move where the jobs are anymore.
All you need is a computer and an internet connection and a quiet room to work from.
And we’ll show you how to make the jobs come to you.

How to find transcription work
There are many ways to find transcription work. Sometimes you will find such work on freelance sites, forums or even on Craigslist. (Though I always caution people to be especially wary of scammers there.) You can also advertise your services online, via your website and on social networking sites (as I do) particularly if you are working as a virtual assistant already.
Another great source is on job search sites like Monster and so on. Many job sites often have a specific “work from home“, “home working” or “telecommuting” sections and indeed there are also many job sites which deal exclusively in this area. If you’re not sure what the sites in your region are ask online on forums and people will be sure and point you in the right direction. more »

Ok, so this is the follow up to my last post on working as a transcriptionist (also known as an audio transcriber). If you’re new to the subject I suggest you read that post first and then head back here.
I covered some of the basics last time, and later I’m going to talk you though some ways to find proper transcription jobs and the pros and cons of working as a transcriptionist, but first I want to talk about what is actually required in order to do transcription work. more »

At the time of writing this blog is still brand new, so I’ve decided to start with one of the easiest and more common ways to start making money from home. It’s also one of the most immediate.
So if you’re looking to start working from home ASAP here’s one type of work that requires little to no investment whatsoever and you can start earning money with straight away – transcription.
What is transcription?
Transcription is basically listening to audio recordings and then typing the content as you hear it.
This can be one person, for example someone giving a speech or a doctor describing a medical procedure into a recording device or a group of people talking together such as a business meeting or court proceedings.
I done this sort of work on and off for a couple of years, both in English and in German. Whilst obviously the languages are very different, the rules are almost exactly the same.
There may be slight differences in formatting depending on both the type of transcription involved and on individual client preferences, but essentially transcription is written much like a play or movie script:
Person X: This is what Person X says.
Person Y: This is what Person Y says.
And so on.
Transcribers will generally be supplied with a template from the client or transcription company in Word-compatible format with all the proper formatting – i.e. character and line spacing, etc. – already applied. If not they will at least provide you with documentation on their formatting requirements. more »
