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.
