transcription companies hiring worldwide

Of all the work-at-home jobs, the most searched for and most popular one is transcription.

It is also the most flexible job. Many of my readers and friends have requested a list of companies that are hiring general transcriptionists.

General transcription is the easiest to get into when compared to medical or legal transcription. This type of transcription does not need much expertise as opposed to legal or medical transcription. There are many companies in general transcription hiring globally. The pay varies depending on your experience level.

Though most of the transcription companies hire US residents, there are some that recruit worldwide.

After conducting some research, I am listing all the general transcription companies hiring worldwide with or without experience.
