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.
For example, designing a calculator to each structural element included in a footer foundation - Normally you would estimate your concrete, reinforcing bar, excavation, back-fill, and form work separately. When using a specialized concrete footing contractor for an example, the contractor will arrive at the clients project site at the appointment time, walk the site where the proposed project will be, and look over the construction drawings. A well-designed spreadsheet calculator will deliver a nice bill of materials when you input depth, thickness, width, length of footer, and type of reinforcing material. The calculator delivers a total material cost, labor cost, plus the detailed bill of materials including 10 to 20% standard overage included in each bid.
Yet there is no tool for project management that is more popular or widespread than the spreadsheet, despite the fact that spreadsheets are not designed to be project support tools. Even in organizations with an established project management tool, spreadsheets are used. There are obvious reasons for this. A spreadsheet program is on almost every computer in every organization, people are familiar with spreadsheets and how to use them, and people are pre-disposed to use these "office" types of software tools to solve problems. And I am right there with them. I love using spreadsheets to track all kinds of data. It is easy, convenient, and I admit ego-boosting to show off what I can do in a spreadsheet.
