I learned to proofread professionally at the beginning of my job as an Advertising Copywriter for Simpson-Sears (later Sears) in Canada. As a writer for newspapers, magazines, and books, I often receive a proof (a trial printing) of something I am publishing, on which I make corrections using standard proofreading symbols. I have occasionally proofread others' works, especially as an Editor, and, as a Teacher I taught proofreading in courses, including Technical Writing and, notably, Editing.
