Requirements and Pay

While this company does seem to offer a great opportunity to obtain editing and proofreading jobs from home, they do require the following:

Must have experience in the areas of proofreading, editing,  and/or teaching languages.

Must have a college diploma or a university degree in a related field. The website does state that a graduate degree is preferred.

English must be your first language.

Must have an average proofreading/editing speed of 1,00-1,500 words per hour.

Must have high-speed internet access.


As far as the pay, unfortunately, I have not been able to find a credible source to get you the correct information, however, it does appear that they pay via Paypal.  This tells me that

it is probably not a steady job that is offered, more likely it is projects that are offered intermittently and in fact, the company website does state that they hire you on as independent  contractors rather than an employee of the company.

Is this a U.S. only  based position?
