Capital Typing is a business process and outsourcing company based in South Carolina. It offers a variety of services to its clients and hires freelancers or independent contractors to perform them. These services include transcription, data entry, market research, translation, online customer support, editing, and secretarial services. The company believes strongly in the strengths of telecommuting workers and uses work-at-home freelancers in many positions.

Types of Work-at-Home Opportunities at Capital Typing

As is typical with BPOs, Capital Typing hires independent contractors, not employees, for its home-based jobs. Typically, independent contractors in these types of positions are paid a per piece rate per audio hour transcribed or per word—not an hourly rate, so there is no guarantee of a minimum wage. There is also no guaranteed how much work you might receive from the company.

Listed below are the types of home-based opportunities described on the company's website. However, the company may not be hiring all or any of these types of positions at a given time.

Secretarial Services

People in these positions provide administrative office support for individuals and large corporations who are the company's clients. Work includes digital dictation, writing, and editing.

Transcription

Transcribers do medical, legal and general transcription, as well as captioning of movies and TV shows.

Data Entry

The work these operators do might include data extraction, research, database development and management, direct mail, and marketing services.

Online Customer Support

These customer service professionals provide services that include email response management, live customer support, and chat-based customer service. The work may include bookkeeping, proofreading, client list building and refinement, and online marketing tasks for small businesses and restaurants.

Bilingual Positions

People with dual language skills are needed for transcription and customer support positions.

Web Design

applicants with a web developer background can be assigned to website building and design for a client. They may create and update the clients' social presence.

Foreign Language Translation

The company offers translation services in English, French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Russian and Portuguese

How to Apply to Capital Typing

Contact the company, request information, and apply for its home-based positions directly at the company's employment page, which lists any current openings and encourages applicants to apply for future employment opportunities if none are currently available. The company lists links to its social media network on the website, but those sites aren't maintained.

If the company considers you for a position, a Capital Typing representative will contact you to fill out paperwork, which includes a confidentiality agreement. Then, you are scheduled for a Skype interview.

If you consistently meet deadlines and quality standards, you may be considered for advancement to a higher position, such as project manager or reviewer.

Independent contractors who have worked for the company say they enjoy the flexibility to maintain their schedule and report that company supervisors are available and ready to assist or train when needed. 

Use Caution When Applying

Remote workers must understand that many work-at-home and freelance jobs might be scams or not necessarily legitimate. Be sure to fully screen any advertisement for work and make sure the company is reliable. They must also be careful not to give out personal or financial information that can be used for identity theft.
