( ), a free job site to find new Data Entry Jobs , has some good news for laid-off workers: Brian Scott, founder of the job site, offers some advice on getting hired faster in the data entry field.

1) Review your credentials.

Data entry doesn't require an intensive educational background or specialized experience; you can start anytime you like. Education and experience may be needed only if you are going to specialize in a specific field, such as accounting, academics, or health care. You should aspire for proper education and experience before applying to a certain data entry position. It's easier for companies to hire you because they don't have to train you.

2) Rely on referrals.

If you want to land a job, including data entry, you have to promote yourself. One of the best techniques is referrals. What does this mean? You ask friends or family members who are already into data entry to recommend you to their bosses. You can also request testimonials from your previous clients. Referrals possess the power of the word of mouth; they are easily trusted, and you can conveniently persuade companies to hire.

3) Pass the company's requirements.

It doesn't matter if you're an excellent data entry clerk, if you have a high typing speed, or you possess technical expertise. If you don't know how to follow the employer's instructions or meet their requirements, you can't expect the employer to  hire you. Usually, companies don't want to train you anymore, since doing so can be counterproductive and costly. Data entry positions are always accompanied by job descriptions and requirements. Read every one of them before you send your resume.

4) Get to know more about the client or employer.

You will know if the company is going to hire you by knowing more about it. For example, what types of services do they offer? Are these jobs something you can do too? What types of data entry people are they looking for? Some companies may prefer certain gender, nationality, or other types of qualifications. How long have they been in the business?

5) Where to Look for Work
