As a spreadsheet entry worker, you must have good computer skills, especially with using spreadsheets. It is also important that you have a good typing speed, including attention to detail. You can begin this work as a high school graduate; however, to advance and apply for higher salaried jobs, you need to train yourself in other skills like transcription, writing, and translation.
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.
