Get a Home Typing Job
Are you a fast typist? Do you want to work from home? A job as a typist could be for you. Here are some tips to help you get the position.
- Freelance. Freelancing is selling your services on a project by project basis. Many home-based typists are freelancers and there is plenty of work to be had. The competition for freelance positions can be fierce. Remember that if you do a particularly good job, you are likely to be hired on by the same client for future projects. The most successful freelancers have built up a loyal base of clients that they receive work from.
- Become an Ad Typist. This can be very lucrative (more so than freelancing), but requires some training before you get the hang of it.
- Start looking locally. Put the word out to your friends and neighbors that you are looking to take on clerical work from home. Let the "grapevine" take over. Also, ask local businesses if they could use help with overflow work and such.
- Look at online classifieds sites such as Craigslist and Backpage. The "gigs" section often has jobs like this that you can apply to.
