Work From Home

This Remote Transcription Job Might Just Make You Feel Like a Detective

Got some good headphones and solid typing skills? Then we’ve got a flexible work-from-home gig for you.

Net Transcripts, a provider of transcription services related to law enforcement and criminal justice, is looking for people to work from home as independent contractors.

You can accept as few or as many transcription orders as you want, so applicants seeking both full- and part-time work are encouraged to apply. Previous experience with law enforcement or court reporting transcription is a big plus, but not a requirement.

But if transcribing isn’t really your thing (or your typing skills are similar to Flash the Sloth from Zootopia), no worries. Check out some freshly vetted opportunities on our Work-From-Home Jobs Portal.
