a freelance proofreader and editor.
Happy anniversary to me!
1 Do your research
This didn't extend to finding me work – whatever contacts he may have given me, I had to get the work on my own merits. If you’re thinking of working for publishers, most will ask you to take an editorial test before adding you to their freelancer database. I’ve taken lots of tests over the past five years!
2 Get the appropriate training
3 Seek out and use support
4 Identify and use your transferable skills
5 Market yourself
So, what do the next five years hold?
I run a business. And that requires a fundamental shift in thinking.
