Go to any job site and enter "Proofreader". Apply for the position and see if you get a response. Don't worry about experience because once they see that you have an English degree more than likely they will hire you for your skill. I landed my first technical editing position when I applied at an employment agency with no idea where I wanted to work and no experience. But once the recruiter saw I had an English degree, she said she knew exactly where I belonged. She sent me to a technical communications firm which started my career in technical writing.
