Before a text is shared or published, it must be carefully reviewed for flaws. It is the very final step in the writing process where you correct any last-minute typos, minor grammar and punctuation errors, formatting problems, and consistency problems. Most proofreaders have a bachelor’s degree in communications or English. However, graduates from different fields can also be successful proofreaders if they can show that they have a solid command of the English language. Employers frequently demand that applicants pass a spellcheck test to demonstrate their proficiency. The final step in drafting a document is proofreading, which involves checking it for mechanical mistakes including grammar, punctuation, spelling, missing words, duplicated words, whitespace and format, and typographic issues. Only when you have completed all other editing and revisions should you proofread. Proofreading is difficult to work for many people.
