Comic Book Jobs: Grader @ Heritage Auctions
Do words like "fine," "very fine" and "near mint" pepper your daily conversation? Do you know the difference between "pristine," "mint" and "uncirculated"?
If so, you could be a candidate for the job of "comic book grader" at Heritage Auctions, especially for their Silver and Golden Age comics.
If you have to ask what a comic book grader is, well, this ain't for you!
Heritage Auctions is “a well-established auction house with over 30 years of longevity.” They handle coins, collectibles and all the usual rarities that you dream of finding in your dead aunt's attic.
Duties for their Comics Grader include: grade consigned comic books for sale, select comics for submission to CGC, research, and the usual computer skills.

Of course, you’re going to need a high school degree, and a “strong knowledge of Silver Age and later comics and a strong interest in Golden Age comics.” Plus, straight from an issue of Duh Magazine, experience in actually grading comics is a big plus. The company would like to note that you can expect to be staring at a computer screen for 8-12 hours a day.
Good luck, job seekers!
