Data Entry Jobs
"A data entry clerk is a member of staff who reads
hand-written or printed records and types them into a computer. They are
sometimes employed on a temporary basis, but most large companies which have
large amounts of data will hire on a near-permanent basis.
- For a mailing
company, data entry clerks might be required to type in reference numbers
for items of mail which had failed to reach their destination, so that the
relevant addresses could be deleted from the database
used to send the mail out. If the company was compiling a database from
addresses handwritten on a questionnaire,
the person typing those in would be a data entry clerk.
- In a cash office a data entry clerk might be required to type expenses
into a database using numerical codes.
The number of data entry clerks is declining as it becomes easier for
people in other positions to enter data as it emerges."
