I think I want to pursue an editing/proofreading type job after college. From what I understand, editors usually give directions & assignments which isn't what i'm looking for. I want to proofread documents for typos, grammatical errors, etc. But I think to be an editor you have to work your way up to the position. Can I be just a proofreader & get that job right out of college?

I am looking to make some extra dough but I already work a full time job and I just dont have the time to get another "real" job.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!
Are there any companys that offer work at home jobs that are actually legitimate?
Every so often I see jobs advertised for proofreading, but am unable to in any way prove that I would be worth employing despite studying etymology, grammar, punctuation, the works in my free time as a hobby and being very skilled and knowledgeable in those areas. Circumstances completely rule out my getting any kind of recognisable qualification any more, so I need another way to prove to potential employers that I would be competent at the job.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
