There are a lot of data entry jobs ripe for the picking all over the world, and if you’re been looking for work then there’s no doubt you would have seen this type of employment pop up. Here is a brief list of the type of people who look for and achieve data entry jobs.
– Stay at home parents
A lot of data entry jobs can be performed at the home so these parents can spend time with their children and in the home without sacrificing income. In today’s economic climate many families need two incomes to survive but mothers and fathers want to be present in their children’s lives. This type of work from home gives them this opportunity.
– People with disabilities
This isn’t to say that people with disabilities cannot or should not join the ‘average’ work force, but a lot of people with mental issues like Attention Deficit Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, and Bi-Polar Disorder don’t cope well in situations when they are surrounded by a lot of people. There are a lot of data entry jobs that can be done from the home or with a small group of people and because of this people with these issues are able to be a productive member of the community and to earn their own income while not putting too much pressure on themselves.
People studying at university or college need part time employment to make ends meet. Even with student loans and social security it’s hard to have a comfortable life when you’re studying and learning so many students look for work in this field to boost their income. Freelance work is a great choice for these people because they can choose the work that suits their schedule and they can pick the times of year like exams and holidays where they don’t want to work.
– Recently unemployed
Many companies are making their employees redundant due to failing economy or the lack of work around. These people are often from the skilled labour industry and thus they have little to no transferable skills to other work sectors. Add to this the vast number of unemployed people in the same situation and you have the current jobless situation. Many recently unemployed people take to this field because it keeps them busy while they’re looking for different work and they don’t need to spend a lot of time training.
As you can see, there are many different types of people looking for data entry jobs.
