Data entry consists of recording data into a computer system. Often, this means typing it into a spreadsheet, but sometimes it may require using different formats, such as text documents. Data entry jobs are common in many industries and fields, including healthcare, finance, academia, and shipping and logistics.
Many data entry workers are freelancers or contractors, and data entry can often be done remotely. It's also easy to get started with this type of work, as it usually doesn't require any formal qualifications or training. However, it does require you to be a fast typist and be proficient with software such as Microsoft Excel. It also requires critical thinking and excellent attention to detail, as data entry workers are often expected to flag or correct errors in their data.
