One of New York’s most prestigious medical centers is getting ready for year-end, and are in need of a skilled copy editor to join their all-important content team for this project. Do you have a sharp eye for typos and grammatical errors? Can you absorb a new style guide in seconds? Do you know the difference between an em dash and an en dash? Do you believe copy editing goes beyond just looking for typos? If you answered “yes” to all, we need your services immediately.
As Copy Editor, you’re going to be a linchpin in this entire initiative. As the writer team creates new content, it’s all going to flow through you. You’ll use your editorial gifts to make sure everything is consistent, clean, and ready for prime time. In addition to your usual copy editing duties, you’ll need to make sure the content is informative and accessible to an audience of medical professionals and information seekers alike from around the web. This means making sure that complicated medical terms are translated into simple language that a general audience can understand.
There’s an internal style guide, but if you’re familiar with the big ones like Chicago and AP, there won’t be any surprises there. You’ll also be juggling several different projects at once, as each makes its way through the system.
Hired Gun Profile
