Verbal Ink Transcription Jobs: Detailed Job Review
As many of you know, I’ve reviewed a lot of transcription jobs lately. Today we’ll be taking a look at Verbal Ink. Unfortunately, this is a site that doesn’t disclose much information about the transcription job they’re hiring for.
I’ve done my research and tried to compile as much information about Verbal Ink as possible and think I have the details needed to write this review.
I will say if anyone has any information about this job or has worked for Verbal Ink I’d love to hear more about your experience in the comments.

Lets go ahead and get started with this Verbal Ink Transcription Job Review.
Verbal Ink Requirements
Verbal Ink only hires transcribers from the US. From what I can see on their site, they are looking for experienced transcribers.
It doesn’t say how much experience is needed, but if you’ve never done or held a transcription job before Verbal Ink isn’t going to be right for you.
You’ll have to pass a test, which is very hard, so if you’re not experienced check out some of the sites that hire beginners on this work at home job list.
Verbal Ink Application Process
Verbal Ink’s application process is a bit different than most of the transcription companies I review. If you’re interested in the job, you’ll need to send a resume to the email they provide on their website.
They say that the resume must contain a cover letter or they won’t accept it. Like most resumes include any work experience you have in the field.
If they’re interested, they will get back with you with additional steps to complete.
You’ll need to pass a transcription test, which most members say is very hard. If all goes well, you should get hired and be able to work immediately.
What’s Working At Verbal Ink Like?
Once you’re hired, you’ll need to let Verbal Ink know how many hours you’d like to work each week. As long as they have work, they’ll send you enough to fill the hours you request.
When you work does not matter. Once they send you the work you can complete it at any time, but you do need to meet all the deadlines they set for you.
Like most transcription companies work is not guaranteed and they do have dry spells throughout the year. For this reason, if you’d like to work full time as a transcriber, you’ll probably want to join multiple sites to make sure you have work all year long.
How Much Does Verbal Ink Pay?
Unfortunately, Verbal Ink does not tell how much they pay, but I was able to find that they pay a higher rate than other sites that hire beginners.
They do pay by Audio Hour transcribed like a lot of transcription sites.
If anyone has additional information about payments, please leave a comment!
Is Verbal Ink A Scam?
Verbal Ink is not a scam. They’re a very reputable company that also hires translators. I could not find any real alarming information from members that says Verbal Ink isn’t legit.
It does suck they don’t put out much information about the job and the exact requirements, but just remember you’ll need to have some experience.
It seems like it’s a tough company to get hired by even if you do have some experience.
But if you have experience Verbal Ink looks like a good company to work for. To learn more or to apply, visit Verbal Ink Jobs and send your resume to the email they provide.
If you don’t have experience this isn’t the site for you, take a look at some of the sites that hire people without transcription experience.
