Online Copy Editor Jobs

Online Copy Editor Overview


Copy editors are what most people mean when they think of proofreaders. Copy editors check over the written word (“copy”) and ensure there are no spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, awkward phrasing, or more. More often than not, online copy editors are responsible for keeping an eye on the copy of companies that produce a lot of web content although quite a few online copy editors are self-employed and work on a freelance basis.

Online Copy Editor Education Requirements


A minimum of a bachelor’s degree journalism, professional writing, or creative writing is required. Copy editors must have an eye for detail and be able to look over lines and lines of text to spot the small mistakes inside. Communication skills are essential for conveying the proper corrections to customers and clients, as well as to coworkers. Reading comprehension is also important as copy editors must be able to understand the sentence they read in the larger context of the overall work.

Online Copy Editor Job Market


The job market for online copy editors is expected to decline by 2 percent by 2022, but there are still estimated to be somewhere around 2,800 job openings due to replacements and similar circumstances. Copy editors are often employed in publishing houses and at newspapers, but a large number work freelance. Because of this, the market is still viable despite the corporate sector closing a number of positions.

Online Copy Editor Salary


Copy editors can make a varied wage that is highly dependent on where they are employed. For instance, a copy editor for a small company might make just $13 an hour while a copy editor working for a large newspaper might make as much as $93,000 per year. Freelance copy editors charge their own rates, which vary as much as the corporate sector does; however, the very best copy editors make a significant amount of money.
