Part-Time Proofreader

0 people like this description

Large financial services company in Northbrook! This position is on-site 3 days per week doing proofreading. If you have experience working with analyzing documents and proofing, please see below!

Project requires:
· Careful comparison of original to reformatted documents using manual and electronic methods
· Some tracking of workflow

Candidate must be:
· Very detail oriented
· Self-motivating

· Able to maintain electronic organization as documents move through the checking process
· We are in the final stage of a 5-year conversion effort, where we’ve reformatted several thousands of forms.
· Looking for someone to work out of our Northbrook location 3x a week for an 8-10 week time period. That’s all we can cover in our budget right now, so no chance that this turns into anything long-term.
· We have forms that span from 2-page documents to 30-page documents. All of the forms are text-heavy with little-to-no graphics.
· Our production artists take old forms in Microsoft Word and reformat them into the new look-and-feel (using a new font and slightly different layout), using Microsoft Word.
· Our proofers then compare the 2 forms (old and new) to ensure:
o no words, sentences or punctuation have been dropped.
o They check for misspellings.
o They also look to make sure that the formatting in the old document (italics, bolding, underlining) has successfully carried over into the new format. Many of these forms have been approved by Department of Insurance, so we cannot stray from the original.
o Once they review, they work provide production artists w/ any edits.
o Once the changes have been made, proofers provide final approval that the new form matches the old form.
We’re looking for someone who’s main responsibilities have been proofreading. Although writers have similar education and skillsets, all writers are not proofers. It takes a very unique blend of patience, attention to detail and ability to handle repetitive work.
