I, the typist/transcriptionist/construction surveying part of Virtuadmin, started my early working career at 14-years-old. I had a Saturday job selling shoes that continued while I studied at college. My studies included business, brushing up my touch typing skills, word processing, Information Technology, and secretarial tasks, over a 2-year period.
After successfully completing my studies over a two-year period I initially starting as a cashier/administrator for a local 3-piece-suite retailer handling cash, organising deliveries and stock ordering directly from the manufacturer management.
I progressed into a Customer Service role for a large Wine and Spirits distributor, giving me the training and confidence to go into a receptionist role for more experience and another string to my bow!
This position was for a large national construction company in one of their regional offices. I quickly developed a passion for construction and decided to study for qualifications to progress my career further.
I was successful in completing a Higher National Diploma in Building Studies. My 5-years of working within the Construction Industry has given me the knowledge of coordinating documents, reading construction drawings, how to perform take-offs, compiling Health & Safety/Operation & Maintenance Manuals for the completed superstructure and hand-over to The Client.
After discovering that I had arthritis at the age of 30, making it difficult for site access, I left the Construction Industry much to my disappointment. However, I was fortunate enough to gain experience as a Medical Secretary. The job role included audio transcription of Consulting Psychiatrist Out Patient appointments dictation. This was, unfortunately, a temporary role although I am appreciative for the audio medical transcription experience.
Having gained audio transcription experience I was able to secure a job as a transcriptionist where I had two weeks of official training, due to the sensitivity and confidential information contained in the audio tapes. I was transcribing Asylum Seeker Appeals Decisions. The dictation was strong non-British accents and required a lot of attention to detail in what was being said. Another string to my transcribing bow!
As that was a temporary situation in the United Kingdom, that operation was eventually wound down and transcriptionists eventually had to find alternative employment. It was at this point I started working from home as a freelance transcriptionist.
