Data Entry Jobs for 2014

Have you recently lost your job? Or has it been six-months or even a year that you’ve been looking for a job?

You may want to consider Data Entry; it’s a solid occupation that dates back to typewriters and the early data computing days. With the advent of PCs Scanners, OCRs, and various other input devices you might have thought that this occupation would be in non-existence today. But there still appear to be a great need for people to perform data entry work.

Still, Data Entry jobs are even posted on many of the popular Job Boards; accuracy, detail, and speed seems to be an essential element for this type of position – in addition to having some computer skills for today’s market.

Types of Work

The good news is Data Entry work can be done from home; there are many companies that are in need of people to perform certain types of data entry work – understandably this is computer work that machines cannot easily duplicate, e.g. updating Company websites, maintain Social Media accounts, typing blog entries, and writing articles, to name a few.

Supplemental Income

In recent years, we’ve seen many work-at-home opportunities pop-up, the good and the bad. However, many people still find legitimate “work from home” opportunities. In many instances we’ve heard where people have made more money working from home part-time than they did at their regular jobs.

In a slow economy people are looking for ways to supplement their income, which have led many to look more closely at work-from-home opportunities.


But how does one know which opportunity to choose, in his book “How to Easily Attain Your Dream Work-From Home Job,” author Partha Sarkhel says, “We can teach you exactly how to identify the frauds so you can eliminate being ripped off right from the very beginning. How awful it is to be scammed out of your savings in a work-from-home opportunity that never really delivers.”

There are some companies that still train people in Data Entry, one company that’s been around for many years says the Data Entry market is still good and there are many types of opportunities for people who can follow a system.


Data Entry has opened up doors for many people to earn money, and not just the typical work-from-home-mom, but College Students and Dislocated Workers with moderate computer skills just to name a few; basically anyone looking to supplement their income.

In summary, take time to investigate, and understand the different types of work-from-home opportunities that are available; make sure it aligns with your skill set and most of all your interest – because they’re out there.
