How do we gain access to those jobs? Not many are posted on the job boards. Many MTs apply to jobs and never receive a response. So instead of being so mean, why don't you help your fellow MTs? We all should be nice all year long not just during the holiday season. The world would be a better place!
Reliable Source Jobsite
WORDS OF WARNING:  If you receive an email from The reliable Source Jobsite asking you to register for their site - DON'T DO IT.  This is supposed to be a job database for all types of clerical work.  However, I recently registered, realized I had registered at an incorrect job databased and asked for  a refund.  They stated I was not allowed a refund and that I was trying to get something for nothing.  I then filed a complaint with PayPal.  Later that same day, I received an email and also a telepone call stating that if I removed my complaint from PayPal, they would refund my money.  I did remove my complaint.  However, after my emailing them numerous times inquiring as to why I had not received my refund yet, they basically stated, "Ha, ha.  We're not giving you a refund, never had any intention of doing so, and you cannot reopen the complaint with PayPal."  I did contact PayPal and I could NOT reopen this complaint.  After resigning myself to the fact that I'm a member of this database, I decided to use it.  However, even though I have paid for this membership, I still cannot use it.  The User ID and the Password they issued me are incorrect and will not work.  I have made several attempts to email them regarding this matter, however I receive no reply.  It is for the reasons above I thought everyone should be made aware of this - UNRELIABLE SOURCE JOBSITE

gnat is right. Tell us the URL and perhaps we can all band together (for once) and help a fellow MT. Hey, it's worth a shot.
Reliable Source Jobsite
For those of you that wanted there website it is:
www.freewebs.com/wahtelecommuteemploymentservices - I hope you guys get this okay. If you can't get it off of here, feel free to email me. My email is: tousuns@rochester.rr.com
I want to thank all of you. You would not believe how they acted on the telephone with me. Since tricking me into cancelling my complaint they lifted my user priviliges. I emailed them four different times and they do not even extend the courtesy of a return email. However, they still have my money and will NOT return it. Thanks for all of your help.
anyone know if this is a reliable source for this information? thanks...

taken from their site (I especially like about the outsourcing and 'robot transcriptionist' : 

Allied Health Profession of the Month - March 2005
Medical Transcriptionist contributed by Paul D. Mason, Oxford, NJ

What is Medical Transcription?

Medical transcriptionists (MTs) are the miracle workers of the medical records! They turn doctors’ daily dictation tapes - rough, hurried, harried, mumbled, muttered, highly technical, and always absolutely crucial - into clear, concise, polished gems of documentation. They work this amazing transformation every day under tight deadlines using just a simple tape or digital audio player, a computer, and a stack of medical books and online reference sources.

Jobs Outlook – “Boom”ing?

Remember all those “baby boomers”? According to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), job opportunities for MT’s will be good - growing faster than the national average for occupations through 2012, with the demand fueled by the increased healthcare demands of a growing and aging population.

It’s not hard to see that lots more senior citizens needing lots more doctor visits means tons of new medical records to be generated! There’s going to be plenty of work out there to go around.

Then there’s the big “O”: Outsourcing…

There has been a steady stream of news lately about various US industries improving their bottom lines by replacing American workers with low-wage overseas labor – skilled jobs like computer programming, telephone help desks - almost any job that can be performed remotely.

In medical transcription, however, issues such as little or no foreign enforcement of US privacy laws, instability of foreign labor, lack of English fluency, expense and uncertainty of adequately training foreign labor, etc. can greatly complicate foreign outsourcing and offset the initially perceived cost savings.

Legal questions have even begun: The California legislature has discussed prohibiting all California industries from using foreign outsourcing involving confidential data, mainly because it is simply not possible to guarantee privacy outside of the country.

The BLS states that foreign outsourcing should not significantly impact the medical transcription profession in the US.

Robot Transcriptionists?

Another MT industry buzz involves new technologies such as speech recognition technologies (SRT’s), computerized “smart” data entry forms (EMR’s, CPR’s), etc. that promise to automate or eliminate traditional transcription work. Several software vendors have been very successfully selling tools of this nature to various industries and have been making noise to promote their use for medical transcription.

It is becoming apparent, however, that the complexity of medical diagnosis and terminology combined with the life-and-death importance of accuracy will prevent large-scale acceptance of these technologies in the medical field for the foreseeable future.

According to the Medical Records Institute (an organization that promotes the adoption of computerized medical records systems), most current research shows that penetration into the medical field by EMR’s is only 5-8%, with SRT’s at less than 1%.

ruled out source recorder as well...
I have used EP for .dvf files for quite some time now and even when I open previously transcribed .dvf voice files, which played at normal speed when I transcribed them months ago using the same version of EP, they now play too fast, just like the more recently dictated .dvf files I've received. So, it does not appear to be a problem with the source recorder. Keep in mind that all other files (.dss and .wav) still play correctly. I am only experiencing the problem with .dvf files.

These are all good thoughts, but believe me, I've tried everything I can think of, and I think it's something much more involved. There is a corrupt file or codec or something possibly, but I don't now how to identify the problem at this point.

I have gone through the Express Scribe user forum and have seen several posting made over the past couple of years regarding the same type of situation, but have not found a remedy for it in those postings. No tech support available for free version, so I'm out of luck there too.


B150 is a great energy source...
The only place I can find them around here is Wal-Mart.
I can't wait to see this in writing from a credible source,
because I've shopped Walmart.com and never had the "if you like this" statement and can't verify this story anywhere on the net.

It never happened. Where are you getting your info. Provide a source.
I just did a search. Nothing regarding your rumor but here's something you might enjoy.

What's a good source for very new medical terminology? sm
I'm wanting to avoid paying for a $95 subscription to something like The Latest Word, if possible. Is there a web site that posts new medical drugs and other terms that are so new they haven't hit the books yet?

Google is a great source of information
on Internet terminology and abbreviations. Try it. You'll be amazed at what you can learn for yourself.
Where did you hear that? And what funding source? Curious. nm
Good source for health insurance? sm
I want to start working for myself but need a good health insurance policy because I have two little girls. Any suggestions or advice?
or make sure its a good google source.
To me, Dorlands will always be the gold standard. I have one, and use their online source also. nm

Thanks again.

i have been through some rough times lately and had to apply for some help. there are signs, big signs, all over our offices saying "YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE LEGAL TO GET HELP". so we and our government do give them our benefits whether they are legal here or not. now that is messed up. i am helping to support them so they can take away my jobs and i can't even support my kids and yes i get benefits, wow $75 a month in food stamps which lasts not even a week in a household of 6. don't get me wrong, i am thankful for any help at the moment, but i get penalized for trying to work my tail off and still can't survive.

there was recently an article in our local newspaper where one of our local school districts tried to charge $1000 a year for each illegal student enrolled. it was bulked and the illegals got a lawyer to sue for discrimination. the school district merely stated that they had to HIRE extra teachers that could speak the foreign language just to teach these children and were trying to offset some of the expenses. ridicilous!! so again our taxpayers money is paying to educate illegals as well.
I'm horrible with math myself but was told several years back by a pretty reliable source
that w/o spaces is about a 17% reduction in pay - and I would say the figures you gave pretty much leads me to believe this may be true.

Aw come one give her a break. She said she was sorry and is willing to refund. Give her a chance to

do what is right.  If she fails to do what is right, then go about this in an adult way and not act like such a child.  "you suck"  That is so immature.

She is responding to you and you are eating her alive.  Why would she put herself out there to be treated like this if she didnt mean it. 

I am really astonished at how people can act on here.  Would you treat people like this in person?  If you do, I cant imagine you having very many friends. 

Remember we are all "HUMAN." 


A simple google search will give you your answer...I'd give you the answer,
but how would that help you learn to research on your own...and I'm in a rush to get to the next post.

Thanks, I will give that a try:) nm
Give them whatever you
would give them at the "fairy tale" wedding.  The honeymoon may be over by next year.
hum, I might have to give it a try, then...

Don't give it up
I have been hurt severely on several occasions... and on occasion yes... a bit gun shy for the first period back in the saddle.  It does lessen and then goes away.  Just trust in your knowledge and your experience.  You have to trust your horse.  Just go slowly at first.  But do NOT give up.  That is the worst thing that you can do.  You have to face it and it slowly you will relax more.  Keep in mind that your horse will know/will feel your hesitancy and your fear.  In order for him/her to be relaxed, you must try to as well.  That is why going slowly at first will help regain your confidence.  Just around the ring maybe for a bit.... then a little more open.  Work yourself back up to your usual routine.  Good luck!
Thank you, will give a try
I would rather be alone than to give into it and you could , too.
give it 5 min and this one
Right. I think I am going to give that a
don't give up

There is no reason to give up just because you failed a test.  I have tested with a few companies and changed jobs a couple of times through my six years of transcribing.  I had no training either.  I had a very special family member who helped me out(she owned her own business).  I trained through the summer when I was in high school with her and by the time I was about 20 I was working part time with her.  Just because you are switching from tapes the computer based files doesn't mean that you can't do the work.  It may take a little time getting used to it, but there shouldn't be any reason to not be able to do the work.  Just like any other job, you may have to put in some applications at various places and go on interviews, and it may take some time, but you will eventually find a job.  As far as transcribing, I notice many places require either a c-phone or being able to install Express Scribe or a similar program on your computer.  If you don't have one, you can probably find a c-phone on ebay for around $200.  Just try to stay away from the larger MT companies and you should be okay.  I notice the smaller ones are easier to find a job with.

One can't give up a job, even a bad one,
that pays the bills, dead end or not. I think if this were me, I'd keep the job and take a better school that will mentor me into a job at the end of it. Nobody that I know would be able to give up a paying job to take on a mentored position for no pay. Another option would be to find a different job that is nights and do the free internship during the day. Either way you'd win in the end. Best of luck to you.
They will give you everything
When you order, they mail you the adapter that you need and since you have a router, you are good to go.
Okay, I give up.
It has no appeal. Just a job.
Give this a try...sm
Brown 1 pound hamburger and drain. Add 1 jar Prego spaghetti sauce, 1 8-oz can tomato sauce, 1/2 cup water. Simmer for 10 minutes or so.

Cut a loaf of French or Italian bread into 1-inch slices. Place in 1 layer on the bottom of a 13 x 9 pan.

Mix together 8 oz cream cheese (softened), 1/2 cup sour cream, and 2 tbsp of Hidden Valley Ranch dry dressing. Spread this over the bread. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese all over this. Sprinkle half of an 8 oz bag shredded mozarella over the parmesan.

Pour the spaghetti sauce mix on top. Sprinkle some more parmesan and the rest of the mozarella cheese on top.

Bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
Thanks, I'm going to give that a try
when I'm working and for sleeping. The doctor tells me that it is important to keep everything moving to avoid getting too stiff; however, I do think I need to try a soft neck collar or rolled up towel as you suggested especially when working. I think that may really help take some of the stress off. I will be talking to my therapist about it when I go as well. Thanks so much for the tip!
Did I ask you to give up ANYTHING!!??
Nope!  If you want to ride all over town burning up expensive gasoline and putting wear and tear on your car, with your fingers on the steering wheel instead of on the keyboard making $$$, be my guest.  Now let me guess Patty - next you're going to tell us that you don't drive a car, you ride a bike or scoooter instead to and from your doctor's offices and you're so fast on the keyboard that it doesn't matter you spend four hours out of the day riding up and down the interstate weaving in and out of traffic picking up and delivering, you still make the same amount!  HAH!
no, I don't give them that...*lol*...ya nut!!..nm

I say also, don't give up sm
Had a cat that went missing for about 2-3 weeks, we found him under the house.

p.s. All my cats growing up used to drink from the toilet (my dogs too!!). Never hurt them.

Thank you!...I shall give it a try..nm
thanks! I will give it a try! :-)
Oh, I give up! You know what I mean!
I'd give anything just to have A doc like that

practically ALL of my docs are like that and this has been my experience my entire MT career UGH it really makes me cranky
