Editor Opportunities

We receive a high volume of academic and business papers 24/7. EditorLive editors are required to provide corrections and suggestions in reference to grammar, spelling, document flow, punctuation, and usage within strict deadlines ranging from 3 to 72 hours, depending upon the client's request. Editors must also be skilled in Chicago, APA, AP, MLA, CSE, and other style manuals.

All work is performed in four-hour collection periods; you may select as many collection periods as you would like to accommodate your schedule. The amount of money that you earn depends on the number of collection periods that you select, the time of day of the collection periods, how many other editors share your shift, and the number of documents which are uploaded to us, which depends, to a certain extent, on the academic/business year. Editors typically earn average of $750 to $1,800 every two weeks, which may be higher or lower than this range, depending upon the above factors. You can expect to be engaged in editing throughout your four-hour collection periods. You may need to work outside of your four-hour collection periods to complete the documents that were assigned to you during those times.
