    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.

    There are some on the Job seeker's board sm
    but many are old and quite a few are base in India
    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!
    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. 

    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?
    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!
    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!

    Post about Companys on the Company board, post job ads on the Job Seeker board
    read recent posts on this board and on the company board
    here is a link from the New MT board-you might want to read a bit on this board
    Are you serious? Have you read this board?
    We have MT's on here all the time that are in foreclosure and losing their homes, who can't afford to buy clothes for their kids and shop at Goodwill, who need us to take up a collection for Christmas presents!

    Enough said!
    I read all the way down the board and only saw 1
    thread complaining. OH, I forgot this thread. Make that 2. I don't think that's so bad. Besides, people have to vent. Imagine if every time we got mad at our husbands or kids we just quit. Wouldn't work out too well.
    If you had read this board, you might would have
    thought differently. I just saw 1 person posting the other day and had stars in her eyes about the future of transcription even when others saying how it has gone down over the years. If I were younger and had just started, I think I would weigh very seriously the postings here, knowing they have experience in how this job has gone from 1 of being able to raise a family on to 1 of just chump change basically.
    Read through all the posts on the New MT board. Top 3
    Read your post on the other board....
    It discussed not having health insurance any more, not being an employee, having 2 IC jobs, etc. You speak of this as the CURRENT/FUTURE situation, not in the past. I know the subject of Keystrokes not hiring ICs has been addressed many times on this board.

    I don't mean to make you defensive, but you posted pretty much 2 separate messages about a single job and they give conflicting information. I'm just confused.
    Look down this board and read the thread titled
    "How to make money MT'ing" by Dano. It is excellent advice. It should help you a lot. Also on about page 4 or so there are a couple of threads that discuss how some of the higher producers get their production, hints and tips on expanders, macros, etc.

    You can do very well at this line of work if you want to and really appy yourself!!
    How do you do a search on this board - my topic will never come up and I know I have read about it
    People who read this board still apply
    at companies they are warned about.  Your book would not only be a waste of time, but no one will buy it. 
    I wish I had read this board before I joined Softscript

    Not only were they liars and cheats but they are incredibly Dumb.  The VP of Human Resources has to be one of the most incompetent people on the face of the earth.  No, don't quit your good job for THIS MESS.  Run away!  Run away!

    I'd be interested in joining that lawsuit... 

    Hayseed, I am so sorry to hear that. Last I read the board, sm
    you were very happy at DeVentura. How did it go so bad....!!!

    I wish you well.....Good luck!
    Here's a hint: Read the rest of the board.

    Yes, Jay certainly does read this board. I know because he threatened to sue me if I didn't remov

    certain posts some months ago essentially about the same subject content as now.  If Jay truly owes previous employees and current employees clearly it would behoove him to do so as it certainly doesn't look very good when his indiscretions are plastered all over MT sites.


    Read the well written post on the offshoring board. (nm)
    Just read on the AI board that Anthony Federov is dating
    Heather Cox.
    I hope that student doesn't read this board. sm

    I don't think this was a good place to look for a laugh at a student's expense, even though I suspect you weren't intending to be mean or condescending. We were all there once.

    After 30 years in this business, much of it in QA and QA management, I've gone back to transcription and I am still learning things from my QA people. Humiliating at times, yes! But its all a learning process.

    Oh yeah? Go to company board and read about Heartland's layoffs.

    it's really not fair to tell people to get into this business when it's obvious there's big trouble and the S--- is just starting to hit the fan...

    Read the tips from the poster at the top of the board about Word. Good suff! nm
    How comes this person wasn't reported to the monitor board? I told someone to read the red note on
    I'll probably get banned for writing this, but my comment was much milder than this. I didn't call anyone any names. What's up with this?
    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.

    Job seeker says "premium" pay for ESL - that's
    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. 
    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. 
    Just do a search and read the posts. There are plenty of posts about OSI on this board. nm.
    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.
    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...


    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."
    Search the Job Seeker's and Company boards. Also mtjobs.com...nm
    In 12 years of MT'ing I've never re-read an entire chart. Edit/read as I type. nm
    Yes, I read your post, and I just re-read it, and I've copied and pasted for you in case

    you've forgotten your own words! Your post above is 100% different "flavor" to it, now all positive and cheery! Your first post was 100% doom and gloom every which way, including "raining on your parade", and "if you want to go forward"...God, sounds like she's talking about jumping into oncoming traffic! Here is your quote:

    My first boss (the one who hired me as a new grad) gave me some words of wisdom that I haven't forgotten. She said that transcribing at home with small children NEVER works under any circumstance. Either the work will suffer or the parenting will suffer.


    How can the word "NEVER" in caps be interpreted in any positive way? You took about 8 paragraphs to cover every aspect and completely dash this poor woman's dream.  I'm not blind, I'm not talking about day care at all, I'm talking about the total negativity of your original post! You know exactly what I'm talking about, cause you added some sugar to your second version! And that's much nicer than the first!

    Oh I've read that site and continue to read it...sm
    I agree...much motivation there. I have tried to quit numerous times in the past and did successfully quit when I was pregnant for the first time many years ago but I have never managed to summon up the strength or resolve to stay quit. Thus the "need" for a financial investment in my efforts. It somehow makes it more motivational to know that I have $$$ invested in this effort over and above the $$$ saved on cigarettes.
    Who had time to read?LOL I only get a chance to read This Old House once in a while. (nm)
