Many times I’ve blogged about data entry ads that are all over the Internet. Just about all of them (if not all) are scams, and I always advise against pursuing a data entry ad that you see online or in a newspaper ad.
However, that is not to say that there are not companies that hire home based data entry workers. The thing is, they don’t run ads. This is partly because they are aware of the bad rap that data entry ads have gotten (deservedly so).
So if they don’t run ads, how are you supposed to find work at home data entry jobs? Right here. I’ve been doing some research and have come up with several companies that do employ people doing data entry from their homes. Â One example is Dion Data Services, which is looking for contractors with typing and computer skills. Another company, Troy Research is entirely virtual so all of their employees work from their homes. Not all of them are hiring right now, but most will accept applications at any time. I’ve listed them all on our new Data Entry Jobs page.
While these companies do offer positions that can be considered data entry, most all of them are not just simple typing jobs. Most require very specific skills in addition to typing speed and accuracy. Capital Typing offers data entry positions, but the job description includes:
Data Extraction, Research Services, Database Development and Management, Direct Mailing Lists, Marketing Mailing Lists, and more.
As you can see, this is not just filling in forms on the computer. This is typical of most legitimate data entry jobs, they require candidates with specialized skills and experience.
There was one company that I found that seems to offer that ever-elusive “simple typing job”. KeyForCash evidently hires people to enter information into forms. I have heard that you can’t really make much money with them, but if you’re like most people nowadays every little bit helps.
