When I begin my quest for legitimate working from home jobs, transcription jobs kept popping up. What is a transcriptionist you ask, well basically you would be listening to audio files and typing what you hear into a text onto a software program. I had a friend who worked at a clinic and she was a medical transcriber so I knew there was a demand for transcribers. I remember thinking how awesome it would be to type from the comfort of your own home and get paid to do what you love, writing. If you are a beginner writer and looking for legitimate transcription jobs from home, I have compiled a list of transcription companies that are always hiring for transcription work.

Transcription work will not supplement your income its more of a side hustle, but it does, of course, has its advantages, like working on your own schedule and the ability to work at home.
