To preserve important records, ancient people chiseled them onto stone walls. Thankfully, the modern computer came along to save you from all that hand-cramping labor.
As a Data Processing Clerk, you enter data from a business’s documents into the computer, and save these records for future reference. You need fast typing skills, and knowledge of popular spreadsheet and database software to put all that information in its rightful place.
Data entry is a form of information clean-up, turning customer receipts and payment records into ordered files in a computer system. It’s like organizing your house…without the smelly socks or dirty dishes. It’s perfect for people who love the Zen and comfort of organization, but hate all the physical labor. Now you can whip data bits into an efficient system without ever leaving your chair.
On the job, a Data Processing Clerk checks their entries for accuracy, and enters text and numeric codes into corresponding forms and cells. The majority of your day is spent keying these entries into the computer. The rest is spent analyzing paperwork that needs to be typed to see if you have any questions or if there’s any problem, such as an unreadable report. When the day’s done, that easy-to-lose and highly flammable, old paperwork is safe and sound on a computer hard drive. And it’s all thanks to your quick typing skills.
