- Freelance Transcription Jobs ADVICE!!!!
- January 20th, 2011
I turned to livejournal because I've been a member for years and other community postings on other topics have actually been quite helpful. So...
I am a freelance TV production person...I work in post production and I have been working at the same place for over a year now, but of course things are slowing down and my contract is coming to a close (but they should have more work for me come springtime). I am looking for something to take a bit of a break but that uses my skills. I type about 70 WPM and have transcribed before (mainly field tapes and interviews not medical transcription). I can do medical transcription but I don't know if I could land one of those gigs since they tend to want people with previous medical experience.
When I googled freelance transcription jobs, a lot of what came up were sites that you have to pay money to join to have access to the jobs. I am willing to do this, but I don't want to be scammed and I don't want there to be a situation where I have to complete a certain amount/lots of weird strings attached. (Although I will be able to do it full time from home). My question is:
Can anyone recommend a good site or company that I can possibly get freelance/work at home transcription jobs from? One that is reliable and not a scam, or that you have experience with?
Any info would be helpful! Of course contacting local production companies and things are already on my list ( a field I already work in that has a need for transcriptionists) but any advice on this topic would be helpful.
