Data entry, as the name says, is the process of transcribing some data into a computer program or a database. Data entry employees require excellent grammar and typing skills and they also need to read quickly. The most important requirement is to be accurate because in some programs a mistake in a letter or number can affect everything.

To work in this field a university degree in your Data Entry Resume Sample is not necessary; however, there are several courses (most of them online courses) that can help you to improve your typing skills. It is also necessary to know about databases and word processors. Taking a 10-key test online will also improve your skills.

Data entry employees can find jobs in many industries as the financial, medical, banking, insurance, legal, education, financial, etc. The average salary for a data entry employee is about $35,000 per year, which is why it is considered as an entry job. However, if you have lot of experience in your Resume, you can earn a little more.
