    Also, go to the Job Resources module (see MyMT home page) and find the Excel spreadsheet. That is an email list of all the companies in the ratings area. One way to find out quickly if there are job openings is load those email addressed and send out a blast email, to include your resume. This is usually what I do, and can find work quite quickly when I need to. Stay away from the Bigs, the pay and processes seem to be grueling for people; those are the folks who seem to be most dissatisfied. And then, sometimes you’ve had all the fun you can take and might just go do something entirely different 🙂

    Hi MommaLyd, well that’s the intention of the group here – to explore these many questions. I was hoping the group was going to participate in researching these things along with me, but hasn’t been the case, so I am prodding along as best I can to continue providing resources. I don’t feel my pay is piss poor, for what I do (I make 17-21/hour). I feel that is reasonable for the type of work. I won’t work for piss poor, but indeed you have to do some digging around and finding the good spots. That’s certainly my intention with MyMT, is to collect and compile data in different ways in an organized fashion to sort all that out. I also believe that if people can find out how to do this without the middle man, and I don’t think it is that difficult, for those interested, then there is another way to boost income. So, the object of the MYOB group and this page is to dig around and find that stuff out. So far, we are in a data-collecting phase. It is my intention to dig deeper and organize what we are finding out. As far as “hiring now?” I think most companies listed in Company Ratings are hiring most of the time. Also a search on Indeed.com will return thousands of current open positions, many of them hospital based, where the pay seems to be better.

    I’ll be honest here….I really don’t want to start up my own business in this dying field. I don’t have the time, the money, nor the motivation. Every single lead I have checked out about medical transcription leads to piss-poor pay just like the situation I’m in. I have seen no benefit from all this so far, albeit, I have not earnestly looked into other forms of transcription wholeheartedly. What I have looked into have been sites that you have to set up webpages or vie and bid for jobs….not my cup of tea. I think we need more resources of places we can actually apply for work-at-home positions, whether it be medical or non-medical, that actually pay a living wage close to what we are worth. These may be listed here, again I haven’t had the time to get deep into this, but if those jobs are non-existent then that will certainly make up my mind. Is there anyway to actually classify “hiring now” types of employment?

    Looks like some GREAT resources here…..now to get the time to actually go through them all! I know what I’m doing next weekend! Thanks for putting this all together!

    I’ve already taken the survey, but I came across this today: http://crowdsurfwork.com/about/

    I’m seeing a lot things referring to credentialing these days. My work even sent an email the other day asking us to do a survey because “they wanted to get to know you better.” It was mandatory and the only questions it really asked was if we were credentialed, what kind of credentials, if we planned on obtaining credentials in the future and if we were going to attend the AHDI convention in Atlanta. We were required to identify ourselves….this scares me. I have been doing this for over 15 years but am not credentialed in any way, mostly due to cost and also the uncertain future of this career anyway. I figure why worry about it when I probably will not have a job doing this in a year or so, either by my choice or theirs. What are the thoughts of credentials? Opinions? This doesn’t mean I’m going to run out and get them, but would like to know what impact this might have on my career.
