You have come to the right place to look for work at home data entry jobs. Before you get started there are a few things that you will need to know. Although this is a job that doesn’t require a lot of experience just basic typing skills in order to get these kinds of positions, you will more than likely be required to take some kind of online testing to gauge your skills and speed. It is not necessary to be the fastest typist but it is very important that your keystrokes are accurate. Accuracy is just as, if not more important than your speed. If you can type 80 wpm but all of your words were typed incorrectly, it is highly unlikely that you will get the job. As the old saying goes, practice, practice and practice some more until your speed is at a level that you are satisfied with.
Most work at home companies require that you type at least 25 wpm and higher if you will be doing extensive typing from home. If you want to get a data entry work at home job, you will need to be an above average typist to stand out above the competition.
When you take the test just remember not to stress and do your best. A lot of work at home companies will allow you to retake the test to help you get a better score. You could always try writing online not only to help you earn extra money but to help you improve your typing speed and accuracy.
