Data Capture Specialist

Data capture specialists input lists of items, numbers, or other data – for example, customers' personal information, medical records, or membership lists – into computers or complete forms that appear on a computer screen. They also may reformat existing data, edit current information, or proofread new entries for accuracy. Data capture specialists may use scanners, electronically transmitted files, or other forms of character recognition systems.

Work Conditions

Generally, data capture specialists work standard workdays, but technology allows many to work from remote locations, including home, or during off-hours when processing demands are less.

Employment Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of data capture specialists is expected to decline moderately between 2010 and 2020. Improved technologies and greater social acceptance of workers performing their own data entry will lessen the need for these workers, except for highly detailed or sophisticated work.
