Job Description for Data Entry Specialist

A data entry specialist works on computers, entering information for processing or records retention. In many cases, this work may be repetitive, but accuracy is essential as this data is often essential for the day-to-day operations of a company. Data entry specialists are needed in a wide variety of environments, such as working with insurance information for claimants and new applicants, updating product information for online retailers, and processing patient records for large-scale medical facilities or clinics. Persons who work in data entry normally work at a computer, entering and updating data in specialized spreadsheets or proprietary forms/browsers. Due to the nature of the work, many companies provide regular breaks for their data entry personnel, as complaints such as tired eyes, headaches, and repetitive motion injuries in the hands and forearms are frequent complaints of employees in this position.
