Why the Proofreading Market Will Never Be Saturated

  1. Hi,

    I’ve been tossing around the idea of taking your Proofreading course for a couple weeks. I signed up for the free 7-day trial and liked your FB page also, but I’m dragging my feet because I have a few concerns that I’ve yet to have addressed from anywhere on your sites.

    I’m a post stay-at-home mom, my boys are all grown up and living independent. My husband and I have a small commercial business and I have the responsibility of doing all the office work from home. I never graduated from high school but I did go to a trade school to learn most of what I’m doing now, but for about 7 years after my schooling I worked fast food, retail and telemarketing, never getting a GED.

    I guess my biggest concern is how will that play out in being hired for proofreading. I actually hated English in school, but loved to read, even to this day I am a voracious reader and easily spot errors. Do you recommend I get a GED before I put forth the money, time and effort to take the Proofreading classes?

    Thank you,

    1. Unless getting your GED is something you WANT to do, it is absolutely not necessary for this course and for finding work! As long as you are teachable and willing to work hard at this to learn some new skills, you can be successful at this! 🙂

  2. Do you have to be located in the USA and/or and American citizen to get your first clients and your business established?

  3. The report cited in this article is already 5 years old. I think this post is likely quite old compared to mid-2018 reality.

    1. While the report itself might be old, I am in many Facebook groups that have court reporters in them, and they post all the time about the need for court reporters and different openings in various states. The need is definitely still there! 🙂
