A Great Work from Home Job

On CNN “Your Money,” medical transcription was named as a great home-based job, even in weak economic times. According to Dennis Damp, the author of Healthcare, Jobs Explosion, “It’s a great job. You can work part-time or full time. My editor for many years worked part-time as a transcriptionist because she wanted to stay home with her young children and it was a good fit for her. You start at $30,000 a year and you can either work for a major organization and work independently and they’re hiring 18,000 a year.”
