I asked the CLK team to jot done a few reasons why they became a transcriptionist and what they love about it. Here is one story from one member of my team:
So, I thought, what do I want to be when I grow up? I wanted a job where I could learn new things every day. I wanted to have variety and some challenge in the work, throw in a little pressure or a deadline once in a while, and at the end of the day, be able to see my accomplishments for the day and know that I had done the very best job I could. Also, I needed the flexibility in a job to allow me to be able to handle responsibilities at home that I had, plus, I love to type.
After careful consideration of my options, and the skills I had acquired through the years, I decided to become a medical transcriptionist. So, I joined Career Step in December of 2007, took their medical transcription course, graduated the beginning of December 2008, with Honors, and started working with CLK at the end of December 2008.
Becoming a transcriptionist is one of the best decisions I could have ever made. It allows me all the things I love in a job and then some. I look forward every day to getting up and going to work. I found myself without a job in May of 2007 and I was completely lost. I was in my early 40s and just didn’t think I could start over looking for a job and working my way back up the corporate ladder, especially the way the economy was headed. It was time for a change.
