An entry-level data entry clerk, for example, may use their computer skills toward working with Microsoft Excel. More information is available at the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ website.

What does a data entry specialist do?

Data entry specialists are the critical liaison between information contained on paper and electronic data within a computer database. Data entry specialists manage the transfer of written information from hard copy to computer file copy through keying information into a system or a database.

  • Attention to detail
  • Proficiency with standard computer software, such as Microsoft Office suite
  • Fast typing skills
  • Ability to edit
  • Ability to work for consecutive hours on a daily basis

Most recommend a bachelor’s degree or data entry experience in computer applications or other related fields for a career path.

What are the job responsibilities of a data entry specialist?
