When I copy my resume to the ads on the job board it gets all messed up, dates on the wrong line,

and I have to straighten it all back out again, so that the name of the hospital that I worked at is on the first line, then the dates worked there, etc.  My question is, do I need to straighten this out or does it just mess it up more for the person who is trying to print it out who receives it.  It is perfect when I copy it from MSword, but then when I paste it, it is messed up.  Should I straighten it out to look right because the place that is hiring will read it from that place that I copied it to or should I leave it the way it was originally because they will open it to a larger screen and it will appear normal again?!  I'm not sure which I should be doing so that the person on the other end gets a normal appearing resume!  Thanks for your help!

How do I copy my resume from Word into the
without screwing up all the alignment and getting all the lines mixed together.  I don't use Word too much except for transcription and this is probably basic.  I know how to copy the resume, and paste it into the box.  That's where it all goes wrong  .
Company Board is messed up!
Click on it and you get "Main Board" with zero topics and zero posts...?!?!
Post a resume board?
Wasn't there a "post a resume" board? I am not seeing it.  Quit my other job for full time and it is not even half time.  Going broke here.
Please see my question on company board -posted on wrong board
But there is a link on that board to post a resume and you
can post it there.  Job seekers board is only for companies to post about positions. 
go to Job Seekers board, ther is a link to add a resume-nm

wrong board - rules are pls use WORD board

oops! Part of my subject line did not copy. Should read:
OP posted ... etc. etc. as above.
wrong board - try word board
actually we R both wrong - s/b its' own board..nm
Sorry. I don't know how I end up on the wrong board.
wrong board
Oops, posted to the wrong board, but I answered my own question anyhow! 
Sorry....wrong board. nm
That is "web site" in post above. Also, Auto Copy add-on for Firefox will automatically copy
Auto Copy add-on for Firefox AUTOMATICALLY copies what you select (highlight) on a web site to the clipboard.

Then you can paste it in a document.

It just saves the step of right clicking and then clicking on "copy" to put something on the clipboard. Just select it, and it is on the clipboard.

It only works only on web sites-- only copies stuff you select on web sites, i.e. not in other documents.
Print a copy of the form on your printer, fill it out, copy and send it to your computer via fax may
Just a guess. Or print it, fill it out and fax it to her.
Oops! Sorry, wrong board. nm
oops - sorry - I'm on wrong board....*LOL*

You're on the wrong board!
This particular board is for medical transcriptionists, so we can't help you. Sorry!
sorry...posted on wrong board
ooops wrong board nm
oops, sorry. Wrong board!



How do you copy your SH file to text - do you copy each dictionary separately? nm
I know this is probably the wrong board, but I need positive thoughts
prayers, whatever you can spare.  I've been having left-sided chest pain for a couple of months now.  I had two irregular EKGs about 18 months ago but couldn't get in with a cardiologist before losing my health insurance due to job loss.  They've got a huge waiting list to get in, and "younger" people are at the bottom of the list.  I'm just feeling panicky because I'm worried that it's breast or lung cancer or heart disease or something, and I've got young kids at home.  I just hope this doctor doesn't treat me like I'm a hypochondriac because I'm a female Transcriptionist over the age of 30.
Wrong board, but gavage feedings

Sorry...wrong board. I am half asleep here in Calif.
Is Error rate post on wrong board?
No responses -- just wondering if I should be on a different board?  Could you direct me please? I am new to this site. I own a small medical transcription service with 19 transcriptionists -- needing to implement an error rate policy and looking for suggestions on how other services have done this?  Thanking you in advance for any and all assistance!  D.
There is nothing wrong with the MTStars Line Counter. If you have issue, you need to email
and take it up with us directly rather than post openly on the forum. Email to support@mtstars.com
IRS dates are 1/15, 3/15, 6/15 & 9/15
Sorry, but astrology pre-dates
began in the Renaissance, with Galileo being one of the first astronomers. Astrology pre-dates Christianity. As to whether astrology is incompatible with God, I respectfully disagree.
BOS rules for dates-help!
My mind has blanked--what is the current rule for doing dates in dictation?  Isn't it to write out the dates as October 21, 2006, rather than 10/21/2006??  Thanks!
Shorthand. Can someone please help me set up dates..sm

I need to set up an entry for each day's current date in the form 01/04/2007, as well as an entry for the date of the previous day and I do not know how to set it up.  Please help!  Thanks.

when to use in and on with dates that are incomplete


1099's info from IRS - dates etc.

I am doing a 1099 C to my ex-husband and I have received my four from my accounts and so here are the instructions regarding them from the IRS forms sitting in front of me -- Both as a recepient and as a reporter

DUE DATES:  Furnish Copy B of this form to the recipent by January 31, 2007.  File copy to the IRS by Februuary 28th.  I have to file my "Intent to File a 1099 by Februaru 15th".

On the back of my 1099 (Misc Income) received from my accounts it states "If your net income from self employmnt is $400 or more, you must file a return and compute you SE on Schedule SE (Form 1040) -- this is social security.  

It does not say from all 1099's but simply on the back of this one.  Now if someone files a 1099 with under 400 on it and others are filed with higher amounts, the IRS might wonder but I doubt that they would audit for 400 as that does not increase your tax and is only 60 SS.  Not worth their time.  But if you were to get several of these they might. 

Now some will not send you a 1099.  Plumbers, electricians, painters etc. that work on houses as sub-contracters do not get 1099's from their contractors.   I have several neighbors/friends who have small business and use manual labor and do not provide 1099's.   Then you have to decide whether or not it is worth including in case you get audited and how honest you wish to be. 

As for the employee vs IC or subcontractor - would you get anymore benefits as an employee - perhaps the 0.75 SS that they pay but they would take that out of your pay so you are not ahead.  As for having to set hours, when I was offered that before I decided stay and forge forward with my own accounts - I simply said "No thank you".  But I understand where they are coming from after having my own small 5 accounts.  I do give my gals some leeway but I do need the work back in a certain amount of hours and I prefer that they work when they are rested, not rushed, have no interruptions or squeezing me in between basketball or soccer as it certainly shows in their work.  It is hard keeping an even flow as I have no control of when docs are off or work is light or when suddenly someone decides  not to work. In the 18 years I have been doing this the hardest part is keeping a regular flow of work going to keep everyone happy.   As unemployement goes up, we go down.  But anyway just thought I would let you know what the 1099's say. 

P.S. Those dates should be 2006, not 2005 nm
What are the dates quarterly taxes are due?
By dates. Find a time when you SM
are relaxed. Then go back, starting from course completion or first job. Just go date by date until current. Funny you mentioned this, since I was just reviewing mine. It's not easy when you're tired, so if you are a Nightowl, try it in the morning or any quiet time. I don't believe you need to put exact dates, just the year and any person who was your supervisor or anyone you want as referral. There are also sites online that might help, but not with your dates. :)

Example: (Basic)
MT course completion: 1990.
Smith Hospital 1991.
MQ 1991-Fall 1991.
Jones Hospital 1992.
MQ 1992-1993.

List all types of work done. All of them.

wrong, wrong, wrong. work is being outsourced because of $. period. not because of unqualified MTs
Wow, that really must have messed YOU up.
That's all I can say about that.
That is messed up!
What the h***? Why is he dictating or furthermore why is he a doctor in America if he can't understand a white female. A majority of patient's here are Americans so if there is a language barrier then what is he doing practicing without a translator? How can he provide good care to a patient if he can't get an accurate history due to language barrier? That just seems crazy to me.
oops, messed up
Meant for the previous message to go out to CalMT, not Trish.  Sorry.
Sorry, messed up the hyperlink...
The copy & paste URL above works fine, but here's the hyperlink again, hopefully correctly this time...

Need MT section on this board to post line rates sm

and what company to help turn things around in this industry, meaning, the 4,5,6,7,8 9 etc per line which is grossly under paying if one takes the time to figure, how many lines, how many lines per hour, per minute, per second to make HOW MUCH PER HOUR.  This is the key, how much per hour you make.

With a list of where to refer to, it helps curb this slave labor mentality.

THE MTs NEED A SECTION ON THIS BOARD to list going rates so the industry becomes more competitive and not at our expense with all this " supply 3 phones, supply long distance TO THEM. BUY THIS AND PROVIDE THIS TO THEIR COMPANY.  Buy this license, this software.

"She has really messed things up for this SM
single mother."  BOO HOO
Please ignore the above post. I messed up.
I work as an editor for SS. I had problem getting my lines in every day and for a while was doing 1890+ in 4-5 hours. However, after they changed my pay to w/o spaces at their whim (as I had been paid for spaces for the first 4 months I worked there), I just decided I did not care and I do just enough to get 945 in my 4 hours. They are constantly wanting extra help in editing, which I used to pitch in and help as well, but now I don't simply because of the pay change.
That should be wasn't a problem for her..see got me all messed up now!!
Well, I messed that up, meant to say DH is cooking
That could have been where I messed up. Not sure, I tried about 5 times and even had it resent.
Bayscribe Screen got Messed Up - Any help?


I accidentally hit a key or keys (maybe Ctrl.-something) and now my Bayscribe screen has tiny text appearance, hard to make out some words. It does not appear to relate to the "Customize" button in the upper right corner. No matter what I choose there, it still looks the same, or nearly the same, Just tiny type for all text and headings, boxes, etc.

Thanks a bunch,
