Keystrokes has an ad on the job seeker's

board.  It pays 8 cpl.  You should check it out.  I'm not sure if they do voice recognition, but if you can avoid those companies that do, you'll make better wages on straight transcription.  Just send your resume to some of the companies that are advertising and see what pans out.  Decide a rate for yourself and don't accept anything lower than that.  Decide if you want employee status or IC/statutory.

ER work seeker
I am seeking IC status also typing ERs.

Seems like since I've switched to DQS, production has gone down. Not able to use normals like before on Word... it's frustrating.

They must, just saw an ad on the job seeker board for it, but
its too bad they don't offer their current employees an opportunity to learn it, or at least announce the job internally if someone is interested.  This is the WORST company for any kind of promotion and absolutely no communication with its employees.  Once you are put on a platform or on an account you will die there cuz they won't let you move.  Team leaders suck, too. 
Job Seeker's Board.....
Radiologist Transcriptionist Needed.  Thanks. 
They have an ad on the Job Seeker's Board here. sm

just look to the left of your screen towards the top and click on "job seeker's board".  Scroll down and you will see an ad for WMX ER work.  Good company, good bennies, good people, been with them 5 years. 

Ignore the grumpies.  I don't like the search function here either.  To get more current stuff you can click on the "related" link in blue on each message or go to the top of the last few current pages of the Main board or the Company board.  Do Ctrl + F to bring up the search box .  Good luck.

Job seeker says "premium" pay for ESL - that's
There are some on the Job seeker's board sm
but many are old and quite a few are base in India
If you look under job seeker's on the left
lots of posts.  Don't know why you need a job bank AND those posts. 
There are some on the job seeker board.
I just went up from MT to QA about 3 yrs ago.

That is the red note on the job seeker's board.
Did anyone see the posting on the job seeker's board with
the ortho emphysis? 
Check out Job Seeker's Board

Sheri...does that mean that the job seeker's board will have sm...
companies posting jobs that off-shore transcription?  I am trying to find an office that does not off shore due to the difficulty of the reports left over for the US MT, so I need to be careful if that is the case.  Thank you!
should have read except on job seeker board
except solicitations on Job Seeker boards here for MT/coding etc. 
so true, but she could post on Job Seeker's
Board for a job not yet really available like some MTSOs do, and then give you the runaround when nothing is available. It's happened to me a couple times, now I'm suspicious about that.
Job seeker's board question please

What happened to all the jobs in the "job bank"?  There's only one in there. 

Also if you open the adds up and click on "for information" it goes to the info for that one companythat has the add, not even the right company. 

I must be a bitter MT..Check out the ad on job seeker's

Obviously Indian-based, but they want to train you to be an MT..check this part out..

Transcription is fun for the right person as it allows you to write and if you love to write, then it is an enjoyable career. Some people who do not like writing because they are not creative still enjoy this medical online profession. Even people who hate writing like this profession because it allows for working at home on a flexible schedule.

OKAY.. what planet are they from..Since when is transcription fun LOL...and I'm sure glad it lets me write whatever I want, because I just love to write..LOL and I get to use my creative ability also to write whatever I like. People who hate MT-ing just do because they hate to write and are not creative LOL. I'm sorry but this just cracked me up. I've thought a lot of things about transcription but FUN was never one of them. Lucky for me though, even though I don't like it, I get to stay at home and have a really flexible schedule..NOT.. lol...


Is this normal pay? On Job Seeker's board (sm)
They are looking for an Ortho QA Editor and after training they are paying $11.50 an hour? $11.50 an hour?  $11.50 an hour?  Why not just work in fast food?
5000 lines per day on job seeker's ...
You gotta be kidding, some say it was on before and required more than one person but why submit it as if it were a "job" offered to one? Perhaps I am "slow."
jobs on seeker board

I am wondering, are most of the jobs at http://forum.mtstars.com/seeker/ for at-home positions? As opposed to working on site?


The job seeker's board has a lot of local jobs
advertised all over the country. I don't see her making that kind of money as a home-based MT, but she would not have travel expenses, etc. Good luck.
I believe they are posted on "Job Seeker's Board"
CHS Acct Mgr posting on job seeker's board
I have a sneaking suspicion that this is Ascend.  If anyone finds out what company this is, please let us know!
Search the Job Seeker's and Company boards. Also mtjobs.com...nm
There's a link to post resumes on the Job Seeker's board. nm
I agree, you need to a lot of research. I would start with the job seeker's board and see who S

is advertising and research the companies that seem to have the best to offer and find out if they truly are the ones with the best to offer.  In this business, there are a lot more considerations when looking for a job than just cents per line.

Good Luck!

Keystrokes. sm
I know that they have gotten beat up on here lately and had good posts too, but I think that each company is different for each person. I have found a permament place, as long as they stay this way or improve. I am treated fairly, paid well and on time. I am left alone as long as I do what I commit to. This is a perfect situation for me, but to each his own.
Try Keystrokes
They may have radiology positions open. 


I sent you some info via email.  Check your email.



keystrokes ads
anyone know why Keystrokes has ads requiring at least 3 years experience but their website says 5?  which one is it?
Keystrokes. nm

Do you mind e-mailing me please?
Can anyone give me some info on Keystrokes? Are they a good company to work for? Competitive line rate, etc.?

Does anybody know about the company called Keystrokes Transcription Service, Inc out of Illinois?  Am thinking about working for them.

Keystrokes, MDI-MD
to name a couple.
This company always pays on time and in general is easy to work for.  QA and TAT are big priorities as in most every other company, but also they try to keep their employees happy.  They also do not offshore and pay is good.
I have applied to Keystrokes over three weeks ago for radiology positions.  Unless they are not happy with my work, could anyone tell me why they continue to advertise for 30, 60, however many openings they have?  What gives with them?  Any input would be appreciated.  Thanks.
How many keystrokes TX vs. VR
For those MTs that do VR editing, about how many Keystrokes would you say you do compared to straight typing?  10%?  20%?  I know it varies but I am just looking for a ballpark figure.  For those that had RSI symptoms, have you found relief in editing?? 




You want to know about Keystrokes.  Well I am currently on an account that requires 1200 lines/day.  It is a very difficult acount though and most cannot make this goal.  they are not at all flexible here, but there are many other accounts, so depends on where you are working.  If you would like more info, you can email me at above email address.

Hope this helps.


Does Keystrokes run this place? nm

Question about Keystrokes
I am considering applying to Keystrokes for a MT job as I see they are advertising for a variety of MTs. Has anyone here had any experience with them or know anything about this company.
I just want some feedback before I jump in. Thanks!
The latest with Keystrokes

New to this site.  Read something a while ago about Keystrokes not hiring.  Does anyone know anything about them now?  How are they to work for and how do they pay?  Thanks for any information, good, bad or ugly.

Saving Keystrokes
I did just purchase this book and think it has substantial advice/ideas and with a little reprogramming of my brain I think it will pay off greatly in the long run. I don't see how a line count can't be increased with using the short cuts shared in the book. I'm not disappointed with the book.



Keystrokes is good. nm

Keystrokes is the best out there for radiology. They may have some sm
negative posts here but I love radiology and they are the best that I have found with plenty of work.
ks is Keystrokes, an MT company.

Lots and lots of abbreviations, most if you think about it will are obvious -

nt - no text

KWIM  - know what I mean

ITA - I totally agree

HTH - hope this helps

Saving Keystrokes
I probably don't type as fast as most of you, but our company set a standard of 160 lph, and said that the national average is 175.  Since adding shortcut keystrokes, I have gotten my production counts up to an average of 179 now.  I got a lot of this information from you girls - reading your comments, and now have just gotten the book "Saving Keystrokes" as I want to keep adding more.  If you add a few each week, you can build up your production.  I was at about 130-150, depending upon how the doctors dictated that day - one is much more challenging!
Keystrokes does not offshore
Spheris v Keystrokes
I have worked for Spheris. Follow your instincts and do what your heart says. If it says leave Spheris, it is correct! I am a new hire of Keystrokes and they are really busy with lots of new accounts. I do have to say the owner herself contacted me several times, the recruiter, payroll, and when things needed doublechecking, a coordinator of my paperwork and equipment. To top it off, the lady who sets the computer up is fantastic. These people will continue to grow because they have that old-time feel. There are growing pains, I can see, but my heart tells me what others have said: These are good people and a good place to work. Good luck!
