Proofreader Jobs

Proofreader Overview

Proofreaders are commonly mistaken for copyeditors. Instead of checking for grammatical errors, proofreaders check for inconsistencies in things like page numbers, pictures and captions, typeface, and more. A decent level of education is required for proofreading, and prior experience is beneficial for those seeking work. Because of the need for high quality content, proofreaders often work in news facilities and as editors for web content.

Proofreader Education Requirements

Proofreaders need a minimum of a bachelor?s degree, usually in creative or professional writing although a standard English degree will also work. Proofreaders receive little on the job training--just enough to know the standards of the company they work for. Proofreaders must have an eye for detail and be able to pick out small issues that may have been missed by previous editors. In addition, proofreaders must be skilled in communicating with coworkers in order to understand and explain mistakes and how to correct them. They must also have strong reading comprehension skills in order to understand the material presented to them.

Proofreader Job Market

The job market for Proofreaders is actually expected to drop by 1% by 2022. However, that?s not to say the market is hopeless; with the advent of self-publishing, many independent authors are hiring freelance proofreaders in order to ensure the quality of their books. Proofreaders are typically employed in publishing houses and production companies across the country.

Proofreader Salary

Proofreaders can make between $16 and $17 an hour on average, with more experienced proofreaders earning upwards of $44,000 per year. The salary is largely dependent on the employing company; a small publishing house would not pay as much as the Paris Review for example. Freelance Proofreaders can charge higher rates and often make more money than those employed in corporate positions.
