Rake90, it is possible to make a career out of transcription. However with just one company, you probably won't be able to make the money you want.

There's a list of companies on Freelance Transcriptionist Road with notes as to who hires newbies, etc.

How does your resume look? Do you have any office or secretarial background? If so, that counts towards experience. If you currently have the skills to do this, then you can do it. You can gain some experience at SpeechInk through Mturk. You can check out Scribie and Quicktate (both low paying), as well as Appenscribe. And just keep applying and moving up the pay ladder until you get where you want to be.

Will you want to make a career at Tigerfish? Once you have more experience and can make more money, probably not.

Good luck.
