Stenographer Resume

A stenographer is a professional who is responsible to translate a language into a coded language that seems to be short. The technique of translating a language into a coded language is known as shorthand. These professionals work both ways, i.e., they first translate a language into the coded short form and then, again translate it into the original language. What really matters in this job is the speed and so, it is important for them to possess a speed of translating 200 words per minute into the short coded forms and then back into the original language. Generally, these people are not affected by the changes in technology because the work done by them is usually in the manual form.

These professionals come out as a great help when you need to document spoken words quickly. They hear the speech and code the words as quickly as possible, matching up with the speed of the speaker. Further, they decode those words in a descriptive manner, when needed. These stenographers are required in almost all the fields. They are needed everywhere, whether it is a press meet location, court, government office, or corporate house. They are also needed whenever there is a speech given by renowned personalities such as politicians, doctors, etc. This job profile will prove as a good opportunity for young professionals who want to make a good career and earn a handsome salary.

There are several skills required to carry out the job of a stenographer. One of the most important job skills is excellent knowledge of regional languages including English. These professionals are needed to be hardworking and dedicated towards their work. Apart from the knowledge of languages, they should also possess intensive knowledge of shorthand. You have many options available if you really possess the skills and talents for this job profile.

So, you can apply for this job with a good stenographer resume if you possess all the desired skills and qualifications. A graduate degree would be sufficient to apply for this position. Apart from your graduate degree, it is also necessary to have a certification or degree in shorthand.
