One of the easiest ways to get around talking to customers over the phone and having to keep them happy is with a data entry job. But the problem with that is they can be hard to find and even harder to get. What companies still hire data entry keyers to work from home and what can you do to increase your chances of getting hired will be discussed in this post.
How to get hired to do data entry from home?
Because data entry work is a field that doesn’t require any experience (for the most part), you will need to possess the proper skills and discipline that employers recruiting data entry keyers are looking for. The following are listed below.
- Can type at least 35 wpm.
- Be a very accurate typist with little to no mistakes.
- Have the ability to do repetitive work.
- Can sit for long periods of time.
- Pass a typing test.
- Invest in a mechanical keyboard and a flat sturdy desk or surface to type on.
- Highlight your fastest typing speed in your application and previous jobs that involved typing and/or working remotely.
If you don’t know what your typing speed is at the moment, you can find out by taking a sample test on the Typing Page here. On that page, you can also practice your typing skills and increase your speed if you are typing at a slow pace.
It is also crucial that you remain calm and confident when you take a typing test. Try to relax beforehand, take a deep breath, stretch, and warm up your fingers, just like a singer would before performing with a typing practice test.
Please watch this video below that will provide you with more practical ways to increase your typing speed right now and how you can make more money from home typing faster.
Remember: The more you do something the better you will get. So practice, practice, practice…and before you know it, you will master your typing skills.
