Proofreading, Anyone?

Here I am, pimping freelance work again..  We are still in need of WRITERS at Quality Communication Solutions (see Call for WRITERS! for the details).  QCS’s C.E.O. Steve Brown asked me to let you know that we are also in need of at least one excellent Freelance Proofreader/Editor/Compiler/Submitter, whose duties will include:

  1. Proofreading – this entails a complete grammar/spell/spacing check and verification of placement of all required keywords.
  2. Editing – very minor editing to include reading entire article watching for proper use of English syntax and flow.  Major changes go back to original writer.
  3. Compiling – if multiple articles are required to fill an order (2 or more) they will be compiled together in a zip file or as instructed for processing.
  4.  Submission – All articles or batches of articles will be submitted either directly to QCS or destinations as specifically instructed.
  5. Daily Process Reporting – you will be required to submit a daily report of articles processed.
The pay rate for the proof-reader is $0.40 per article submitted.  Estimated time to process each article is 5 minutes per article.  Processing time may be anywhere from 2 to 4 or 5 hours per day but not necessarily in a continuous block of time.  Overall estimated workload will be 30 to 60 articles per day… many weeks 7 days per week.  Weekly pay estimate is $84.00 to $168.00 per week, paid every Monday via PayPal.
If you’re interested in the proofreading job (or have questions about it), please contact Steve at srbrownqcs@gmail.com.  (I can answer questions about the writing-gig, but Steve would be your go-to guy on the topic of the editing job.)
And if you’d like to give the writing a shot, there’s a link to the application in the call for writers post.  We’d love to have you on the team! :)

  1. Kana … thanks, as always, for the heads up. I didn’t bite on the Call for Writers, but I have forwarded an email to Steve for some follow-up questions regarding the proof-reading assignment. Again, I appreciate you spreading the word.
