This is a temporary position for approximately two months while our senior editor is on leave of absence. It is NOT a copywriting/rewriting position; the primary focus is proofreading. The candidate for this position will work in a fast-paced, deadline-oriented advertising agency environment.

What you'll do:

Responsibilities

  • Proof content for spelling, grammar and punctuation; check math.
  • Ensure adherence to client, brand and campaign guidelines; use masters and references to verify content; use job starts/change orders to verify accuracy/completeness of content.
  • Check dimensions and other production specifications as applicable.
  • For editable documents, make necessary ‘routine’ edits directly to document; for ‘non-routine’ content concerns, discuss with copywriter and/or account services and provide rewrite guidance.
  • For non-editable documents (PDFs), provide clear proofing comments in an annotated PDF.

Qualifications

  • Strong knowledge of grammar, punctuation, spelling; good math skills.
  • Strong attention to detail and high level of comprehension.
  • Clear understanding and application of proofing versus editing and ‘dead-to-live’ copy.
  • Ability to work well under pressure, coordinating multiple projects and deadlines concurrently.
