Looking for a legitimate data entry job? Here's some info on 10 online data entry jobs. This is a flexible side hustle for occasional extra cash.Data entry jobs involve typing in data from one source into another using a computer. Many businesses outsource data entry jobs to large companies that hire home based independent contractors. If you are looking for a flexible work from home job, data entry is the best choice.

However, beware of many scams out there that are associated with data entry job opportunities. You should do proper research to find legitimate companies that offer genuine data entry jobs.

There are many reliable companies and sites that offer legitimate data entry jobs you can do from home. These companies will not ask for any money to apply to the data entry jobs they offer.

I also recommend FlexJobs. The company has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau,  along with a money-back policy if you are unhappy with the website. FlexJobs guarantees that every single job is 100% legitimate.

    Hi Lashay,
    I am a Medical Records Specialist, and I completed a course for an Electronic Medical Records. I am also wanting to combine this with my Legal Assistant education as well. I not Certified and have been out of the healthcare/Legal field for awhile now, due to health reasons, and due to a recent surgery. I wanted to know if there are companies hiring without being Certified, and would hire me as an employee? I am not interested in looking to be an IC. Thank you.

    1. Hi Cori! Normally most healthcare requires either certification and/or several years working in the field. A few places to start lookin are Xerox and Cigna. If you visit their careers page, and search on of the keywords “remote” “telecommute” or “workfromhome” then you will see what positions they have open.
