Most employers prefer to hire proofreaders who have previous experience. They may also prefer proofreaders who have a bachelor's degree in English or a related subject. Employers often test applicants for grammar and punctuation skills. They also test applicants' ability to detect small differences in letters and numbers. Most employers also test proofreaders for knowledge of standard proofreader marks.
Advancement is limited in this field. However, there are several levels of responsibility for proofreaders. Beginners usually compare proofs to the original copy. They correct misspellings, incorrect math or word breaks, typing errors, and other simple errors. Proofreaders with some experience read copy for grammar and punctuation errors. At the next level, proofreaders also check for typeface specifications. At the senior level, they read all kinds of copy for all kinds of errors. They also edit copy.
