Interesting tidbits

Helpful information from 4under4:

If you are looking at doing general transcription, there's really no way to "train" for it. It's really just a matter of getting your foot in the door and doing it regularly to build your speed. It does take a certain level of typing speed (I would say if you are much under 70 WPM, you need to work on that first), and you may need to purchase some software and equipment.


Every company has their own format and rules for whether you are to type what you are hearing verbatim, etc. so that's why I say you can't really train for it. The subject matter will vary greatly, so it's not like there are certain vocabulary words you can study or anything. I will say that if you are a well-read person and have a basic knowledge of a wide variety of topics, you will find this work much easier. It's also a benefit to have good research skills because you will definitely come across a lot of terms and companies that you need to look up.

There are companies that are willing to hire with no experience, AccuTran and Tigerfish being two that I can think of off the top of my head. In fact, Tigerfish has their test posted on their site, so you can give it a try and see if it's really something that you would enjoy. Their contact information is listed in a sticky post at the top of this forum. After that, the best place to check is Craigslist to try and get temporary assignments that will give you the experience to apply at other companies.


Information courtesy of Iliketotype:

Description of financial transcription, or earnings calls:

Corporations announce their earnings publicly every quarter (in addition to filing SEC forms).They usually do it via a conference call, called a quarterly earnings conference call, and analysts for sure and probably stockholders can dial in to participate in the conference call.

They usually last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes and consist of the chief financial officer and the CEO/president presenting the information, and then a question and answer session where participants in the call, usually analysts,can ask questions for the corporate people to answer.

Once you have experience with these and with the format you're instructed to use, they aren't that difficult except for two things: a lot of research is usually required for company subsidiary names, company product or brand names, etc., and the turn-around time is usually fast, like within 3 to 5 hours. The research is made easier if the company has a good website and is made much more difficult if it does not.

Default Any for NZ? International?

Hi jnmurra

This is a great list. I have checked a few - some servicing only US and Canada which is great for US and Canada.

It just occurred to me to ask before I go:

Do you know of any that hire internationally?

I will check out a few more of them.

Thanks

Hi NZ,

I can't take credit for the content as the members are the ones who put together the list. It was posted here by the previous owner of the board and when we made the switch this week, the formatting ended up totally screwed up, so I had to "fix it" and re-post.

I personally can't think of any companies off the top of my head that hire internationally; however, I'll keep my eyes open for you and let you know if I find any.

Hey, thanks a lot for this list. It helps a lot! At least this should give some new leads to those who are looking for other companies. Again, thanks!

If a company doesn't state where to apply per say, you can always inquire on their "Contact us" section.

Gwen from Transcribe-this posted yesterday here on WAHM to apply at the email listed under the contact section: [email protected]


hope that helps.
