Wanted: Copy Chief
June 20, 2006 at 6:59 PM
Digital Web Magazine is looking for someone who believes content is king and has an eye for even the smallest detail. Copy Chief doesn't just lead the copy editing team, they ARE the copy editing team. We are seeking people who have a passion for editing content and can make even the most challenging content shine. Your work should be nearly unnoticeable even to the author. You should be dedicated, reliable, and have a sense of passion for content editing, not to mention a good sense of humor. Does this sound like you? Are you already correcting typos in this job description? Then we want to hear from you. Please be prepared to send us examples of works you have edited and any relevant experience.
I have no idea why but I first read the title as "Wanted: Copy Thief". I guess I don't have that "eye for the smallest detail" huh? ;-)
Yeah, I certainly think a coffee chef would be a good addition to the team. For some reason I find this line really funny: "our work should be thoroughly unnoticeable even to the work's own author."
All the more reason why we need a Copy Chief.
