Average wage: $17.17 per hour
Enjoy the medical lingo tossed arund on TV shows like "Chicago Med," "Rosewood" and "Grey's Anatomy"? Then you might just like working as a medical transcriber.
Workers transcribe audio recordings created by doctors and other health care professionals into readable reports. Although specialized training is helpful because of the complex medical lingo and the critical need for accuracy, many employers are glad to offer on-the-job training, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Better yet, the job conditions are cushy: Most are in comfortable office settings and telecommuting is common.
Average wages are $17.17 per hour for transcribers at medical and diagnostic laboratories, and some gigs will allow you to wedge the work in during evenings and weekends. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says it expects job opportunities to decline 3% by 2024.
