AccuTran Global is accepting applications from transcriptionists. The primary responsibility of this position is to transcribe financial calls. The work that AccuTran Global offers is seasonal.
From their webpage: “We currently have a need for US Dollar transcribers/scopists with availability in the 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern time frame.”
This is a independent contractor opportunity. You will not be guaranteed a minimum number of hours of work. During the earning season, you would be required to work on Thursdays. Mornings tend to be the busiest for them. The starting rate is $0.005 per word. On their web page, they suggest that the average number of words per minute is 130. This, of course, depends on the individual but comes out to $39.00 per hour worked. A 20% bonus may be paid for calls that have a lot of technology terminology.
The calls that you would be transcribing are time sensitive. This means that they are due back within a short time period. The AccuTran Global webpage clearly states that this position is not suitable for those with small children in their care. Basically, they send you work, you complete it and send it right back.
Some of the qualifications for the job include:
- Typing speed of minimum 70 words per minute
- Transcription experience preferred
- Excellent grammar skills
- Good research skills i.e. use of Google
- Work well under pressure
The application process includes completing a test recording. This is so that they can determine your skill level and if you are a suitable candidate.
