We are a lifestyle magazine based in the East Midlands. We are on deadline on Monday and have several articles from PR companies that need editing and changing in to the third person, along with making them a little more interesting by adding more generic content. In a nutshell:
- copy must be proofread and sub edited
- copy must be tweaked slightly, removing multiple advertising pleas and adding content to make it more of a 'story'
- we may send over other pages to proof read too for mistakes
- may involve brief research on the internet to add facts to the articles.
This will be a whole day's work but copy must be turned round quickly. 9-5 Monday required to get the magazine to print. We may begin sending copy over the weekend.
How many words/articles will there be, and in what format?
How many pages are there altogether in the magazine?
What format will the pages be in to work on (e.g. Word)?
Is it possible to see a sample page of content to be worked on?
The Case Study is a short task that is a taste of what the full Job will be like and
gives you the opportunity to show the Buyers your skills.
Keep in mind that you have more chances to win a Job with Case Study as fewer Sellers will send a proposal.
Moreover the Buyer has already paid a fee for it, which shows that they seriously intend to award the Job.
