I am hoping someone here can help me.
A little background: I completed a 1 year medical transcription certificate program through our local college in 2007 when I was pregnant with my second child. For various reasons, I have not done anything with the certificate since then and I am looking at getting into it seriously now that I am the primary breadwinner (DH is running his own business and it's going slow). I am currently a paper carrier for our local paper but for many reasons it is not a pleasant job and I want to leave it. DH does work from home but because of the nature of his business, he cannot have the kids with him during his "business hours." I desperately want to avoid putting my kids in daycare so the idea of finding a day job is a terrifying thought for me.
Here's my issue: I only have the 1 year of medical transcription training, and it's been 2 years since I finished the program. I am not CERTIFIED, but I have a certificate of completion. I have no actual transcription work experience, only the transcription from the classes. I do know how to do the various forms and I still have all my books, so having the right resources isn't an issue. I'm very nervous about getting it right, so I would prefer to be able to have my reports checked frequently at first.
My instructor at the time recommended MedQuist since she had worked for them, however something happened when I started to apply there previously (I didn't finish my application and when I enter my information, it says something was wrong with my application) and I haven't been able to reapply there.
What other legit transcription companies are there? And is *anyone* going to hire me with my inexperience?
