Active listening, ability to focus and efficient time management are important to become an audio transcriptionist

When I conducted previously my series of interviews with people who are working as transcriptionists, I chance upon this beginner transcriptionist who, at that time, was working as a technical support representative in a nearby city in Metro Manila.

When asked how did he start in this profession, he states that he is still starting to learn the job.  He want to start his career as a transcriptionist because the job has less pressure and can be done at home.  He considers himself as a fast typist and he thinks that the job is a good profession with good earnings.

Well, he prefers working at home because it is more convenient away from daily heavy traffic during commute.  He believes he can manage his time efficiently at work and with his my family.  He would like to work on jobs that deal with interviews and/or legal documents.

I continued to ask what, for him, is the most important characteristic or quality to become an effective and productive transcriptionist.  He states that the three qualities that can make him productive are active listening, ability to focus and efficient time management.

He also added that to become a seasoned transcriptionist, you have to grab all opportunities that you can see and use it to gain experiences. The secret of success in life, is for a man to be ready for this opportunity when it comes. Think of it's fidelity it brings to what each day brings.
