Work from home transcription jobs are becoming more available as many companies switch to remote, rather than on-site, employment. If you’re thinking about a career in transcription, then this is the perfect article for you!Although transcription work is generally a field you can enter quickly and without much experience, you’ll need to treat your work from home job as a business.
