Data Entry Clerks
In high school, you should take English, typing, computer
science, and other business courses that focus on the operation of
office machinery. A high school diploma is usually required for
data entry work. In a growing number of cases, some college
training is desirable. Most data entry clerks receive on-the-job
training pertaining specifically to the computer system and input
procedures used by the employer. Before you begin your first job as
a data entry clerk, you should be able to quickly scan documents
and type the information you read.
