Typists and Word Processors
Most employers require that typists and word processors be high
school graduates and able to type accurately at a rate of at least
40-50 words per minute. Typists need a good knowledge of spelling,
grammar, and punctuation and may be required to be familiar with
standard office equipment. Recommended high school classes include
English, speech, typing, computer science, and business.
