    Hello everyone, my name is syztem (odd yes, i'm sorry). I'm new to this website, at least posting anyway... I've read different threads here and there and now i would like to ask my own question. (I'm sorry if its been asked before)

    Mainly the question is: Is it possible for me to get a data entry side job? or something similar to this for at home.

    I'm working on my high school diploma, currently taking home classes. I had an injury and I decided to get my life back on track, I started with online courses for high school. Now im looking for a way to make money at home, whatever I can. I type around 85 WPM with a 94% accuracy. Also I'm 500$/3 months away from getting my high school education completed. Is it possible for me to get a job even though I don't have my high school education yet?

    Even though I type at a decent speed any work I've done is in electrical / construction. So if I formed a resume I feel it would not look too pleasing to their eyes. ><

    Thank you for reading, feel free to ask any at all questions.

    Don't waste your money with data entry jobs - they are scams. You may want to consider getting started with affiliate marketing, however.

    KeyforCash offers legit data entry jobs , but they have a long waiting list. You can also apply for transcription jobs

    Hi syztem,
    I don't know of any data entry jobs, but I wondered if you would consider building your own web site based on a specific niche topic. If you enjoy the electrical or construction field, you could do something in that area. People are always looking for how-to's, etc. And there are ways to monetize your knowledge.

    If that isn't your real interest or passion, you could do a site about almost anything that you really enjoyed. (Makes it easier to be patient and plod on when you are having fun.) [​IMG]

    It wouldn't be a lot of money right away, or an hourly rate, but it would be something that would gradually build and become a steady income over the long haul. Even if you go on to work a regular offline job.

    Anyway, just wanted to present the concept to you as something to consider. Your typing skills would serve you well in getting it off and running quicker than others.

    All the best.

    Well, i've also heard things about something called a medical Transcription job, that also has to do with newbies. about to look up information on it now to get details.

    The best how-to i could write is how to deal with annoying people at work places.

    answer: Think of the paycheck.

    and ah i see someone above already mentioned transcription jobs.

My personal favorite is the affiliate program....if you dont know what that is it is something like the link in my sig.....also i just started my power mall which is totally free and you get your own site and someone to help you through it all which is great....PM me if you are interested in either of these! Good luck!

    I also suggest to learn online marketing skills first and while you are seeking for the right business.

    Happywife, I Love your chocolate site!! I sent it to my pregnant sister so she could drool HAHAHA! Anyway, could you tell me more about site build it? I'm trying to figure out if its worth the money or not and if it gives more direction or is more specific than Profit Lance. I love PL but I'm overwhelmed with info and need more direct assistance.

    I sent you a private message with the info. you requested. In it I mentioned your sister "in-law" oops. Sorry about that.

    As I said in my note, I don't really know a whole lot about Profit Lance as I have never bought it. I assume it is a basic tutorial of the different ways to make money online with affiliate marketing and such. Someone can clarify if I am mistaken.

    I can speak for SBI, as it is what I have used to build, host, etc., both of my sites. It is very much worth the money (or I "the world's biggest penny pincher" wouldn't have bought into it the second time).

    It is the entire package. I haven't spent any money on anything else since, literally. It is very step by detailed step. I can't imagine it being any more specific unless they actually do the work for you. (Well, they do quite a bit of the work for you, now that I think about it).

    What I mean is, I was like the old Sergeant Schultz, "I know nothing!" I needed things spelled out with the how to's and click here's. That is what I got.

    Yes, I've learned a lot and can do more now than when I started. I know some html now, and am in the process of tackling some basic css (yippee [​IMG]), but that is just 'cause I want too. It makes things a little faster and easier when you pick up some of the extra bits.

    Anyway, I sent you some reading materials to get you started.
    All the best.

    hello everyone its me again >< allot of time has gone by. been working on my school thing. I've applied to jobs online here and there... got my first reply the other day but it required me to pay 15 dollars? anything I've read about people asking for money first has been a scam it seems. sorry for bumping my own thread. i wasn't sure if i should make a new one or just use this one.

    I've also been looking into making a permanent resume. but i don't have any previous work experience. Any jobs I've had in person were just sort of a.... "your hired" on the spot thing. Sure is different online.

    Well syztem,

    Welcome back. I can't say specifically for this offer by K Hunter, but I do remember when I was first looking for some online work following a link to an eerily similar advertisement. (I think I paid more than $15, too) that sounded promising. You just process the responses to the ads and get paid per order.

    Unfortunately, after parting with my money I only got a bunch of stuff telling me how to promote their ad and sign up for surveys and paid to read emails, etc.

    I emailed several times telling them, and "quoting" their initial ad, that I wanted the info. on the order processing, etc. They never responded with any suitable reply. I was lucky enough to get my money back from clickbank, and a lesson was learned. [​IMG]

    Hope that helps you.

    Well i just did a reply to a medical transcription company called transamassociates, hopefully i did what they asked me to well enough for them to take me in. just a quick question though... medical transcription is the type of job that is really only done at home? say if i get a year or 2 experience under me and i decide to do it the real world (omg matrix moment) would that be an option for me?
  14. MedTranHome

    Epics, medical transcription is commonly done at home, even for new grads. The company you mentioned has a nickname of "trans-scam" associates, so take that into consideration. Good MT schools are Andrews and M-Tec.

    You can do general or legal transcription without any special training as long as you have excellent English and grammar skills. There are companies that hire people w/o experience, though they pay low, of course, until you get some experience. I know a lot of MTs, GTs, and LTs that make good money working at home.

    Ah i see that they have a bad reputation, i guess i wont be replying to them anymore. Darn thought i had a bite there. I understand people start off with low pay, im willing to deal with that so i can get some experience under my belt.

    I've decided to make a nice resume before applying to any other jobs. I wasn't sure if i could have one seeing as how I don't have any previous experience. I've also never had to make one. Going to search the forums, I'm sure has asked before on how to make them or tips.

    Hi , im new here as well ... looking forward to sharing/receiving information [​IMG]

    well just updating. No jobs yet... seems finding them isnt as easy as it seems now that i know even the nice looking ones can be scams. I did find out that the internet is endless >< can really get to you if you stay on it the entire day looking for information. I found a place called Spheris but they charge for a training session. Entry level ( believe thats the word for no experience) is also not that simple to find. Staying strong though and updating for anyone else that reads the thread.

    EDIT: oh i forgot to add ive learned part of the entry level problem is because of the need to know medical vocabulary. Or atleast thats what i picked up.
