Experience and Skills:
The ideal applicant has an observant eye for detail and takes pleasure in the revision process. Applicants should also have strong organizational and communication skills. Some basic experience with proofreading—that is, reading a copyedited page against typeset text—is a requirement. Candidates must pass a proofreading test before proceeding to an interview.
Specific work hours are flexible, but interns typically work three or four days a week for three months. The hourly rate is $13, and Norton interns work no more than 20 hours per week. Our office is located in the heart of Midtown, on Fifth Avenue, across from the New York Public Library and Bryant Park, and within two blocks of the Theater District and Times Square.
