3PlayMedia is recruiting contract transcriptionist / editors to transcribe recorded audio and edit imperfect transcription. Hiring nationwide.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY, but you must be able to type at least 75 words per minute and you will have to pass a series of tests to demonstrate your speed and accuracy skills.
All work is performed remotely, so you will need a good computer (PC or Mac) and a reliable high speed internet connection.

IMPORTANT TIP FROM CURRENT TRANSCRIPTIONIST: “I love working with 3Play! I’ve been with them for just over a year and I have absolutely no complaints. Here’s my best tip for new applicants! On the bottom of the application form there’s a list of GENERAL STANDARDS. DO NOT skim it – read it! The details provided in that section will help you pass their test. I copied the section and pasted it into a Word document so I could refer to it quickly.”
