The average pay will vary with the level of expertise and the job complexity. A regular job will pay you per hour and the rates can range from $10 to $20 per hour. Having higher qualifications and expertise will earn you more money, than the individual who has only basic skills. Sometimes the employer will have a fixed salary scale or a fixed project rate which is non-negotiable.
Companies will hire you when they have a lot of information that they need inputted into spreadsheets, and sorted in a particular manner. Many times, this includes information typed on paper and scanned into JPEG, or using online forms. When companies have a lot of data to input into spreadsheets or a database, they will outsource the job, but often times this is a short-lived job. However, you may find recruitment and staffing who will hire you for the long-term; in many cases, when your contract ends, the staffing agency will find you another job quickly.
