Sue lives in Lincolnshire in the UK and decided to become a proofreader after being a homemaker for 16 years. But how has she found the transition from homemaking to proofreading? For this post, we caught up with her to find out.
Hi, Sue! How has your transition from homemaking to proofreading been?
The transition to working for Proofed has been seamless!
Once I had passed the course, it was a journey through being advised of the next steps, completing and uploading the necessary documentation to register as a freelancer, having an online induction, and finally being let loose on the unsuspecting public!
The transition could not have been easier. Thank you, Proofreading Academy and Proofed!
How much work do you do for Proofed? And how does it fit with your lifestyle?
I work for Proofed four days a week from home. I also enjoy the freedom the job brings; it gives me plenty of time for reading and spending time with my family.
What do you enjoy most about being a freelance proofreader?
What I enjoy most about proofreading, aside from the challenge, is learning about a variety of subjects I would otherwise most probably never encounter. It can be very interesting!
Is there anything else you want to share?
This course is perfect for anyone who is fastidious and has a good grasp of the English language. If you have a natural tendency to spot mistakes when reading, then proofreading may be the career path to follow!
Proofreading Academy certainly fulfilled my expectations in this regard. I am pleased I signed up to the course and progressed to becoming a freelance proofreader!
