Internship Opportunity

Internship Program for Transcriptionists (offered to students who reside in the US only)

Win-win program for TCI graduates and transcription companies

Once you've passed the course with a final score above 80, you can get practical experience by doing an unpaid internship for a transcription company. As a transcription intern, you will gain valuable industry experience. You need to transcribe up to 5 hours of recorded audio during your internship. There is a possible opportunity for employment after your internship period ends.

* Our internship is not available to people located in California and transcription companies may not be hiring people located in California due to Assembly Bill 5.

Here’s how it works:

  • The Transcription Certification Institute has a list of transcription companies interested in hiring TCI graduates as interns.
  • Transcriptionists who pass the course will automatically be eligible to qualify for an internship opportunity.
  • Interns are required to commit to transcribing up to five hours of recorded audio.
  • Interns are required to meet the existing standards of the transcription company that they are interning with.
  • Once the internship has been completed, the transcription company will provide a completion letter and agree to be a reference for the transcriptionist.
  • Transcriptionists are not required to work for the transcription company after the internship completion.
  • The transcription company is not committing any future work after the internship completion.

The internship allows TCI graduates to gain real-world experience by transcribing files for real clients. This will help our graduates gain work experience and a reference to help them establish a career in transcription.

Here is how the process works:

  • You opt-in for an internship after passing your certification program.
  • You will sign up as an independent contractor with the transcription company providing you with an internship.
  • The transcription company will send you the paperwork needed to become an independent contractor.
  • You commit to transcribing up to five hours of recording at no cost to the transcription company.
  • You only accept projects where you can meet accuracy requirements and the deadline.
  • You transcribe the recording on time and send the transcripts to the company.

Note: The transcription company you interned with does not guarantee employment or further work once the internship has been completed.

Transcription Company:

Transcription companies provide real work to TCI graduates. The only requirement is to guide the transcriptionist, provide a letter detailing job performance, and a reference if needed.

  • Agree to provide work to the transcriptionist during the internship.
  • Send all relevant paperwork to hire transcriptionists as independent contractors.
  • Provide a letter of completion after five hours of transcription is completed. Rate the certified transcriptionist in the letter based on their performance.
  • Provide a reference for the transcriptionist, if requested.
  • Consider the transcriptionist for ongoing work if their transcripts meet the company’s standards.
