|Seeking Gifted Proofreaders/editors by BrisbaneQueen: 6:23pm On Feb 20|
This is a very personal and long post.
What I seek is a driven and motivated person to work with me.
I seek people who are passionate, who get really uncomfortable with typographical, grammatical, and all kinds of errors.
I want people who love proofreading and reading.
You've got to be in this for the long-haul. A time may come when I decide to handover majority of editing and administrative jobs to you for a really attractive pay, because I have to focus on other aspects of my life.
I seek loyalty and sterling character. I don't want someone that will come and start boasting all their achievements to me and start acting like without them, my business will crumble.
I need you to be an indispensable kind of person, yet you won't rub it on my face.
I've hired editors in the past. Virtually all of them defrauded me. They sent in articles with little to no changes, and it made me run into serious issues with clients.
Here's an overview of the JD
Some of the people in my writing team finish writing and I feel like their work needs proofreading, line/developmental editing, and reworking.
I'll need you to proofread for grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
Also, you have to decide if there is a need restructure sentences and paragraphs to improve flow.
I'll like you to turn a job from an amateur writer to something that's written by a professional writer. You will polish their writing style and voice.
If an article needs a total overhaul, or a majority of their work is badly written or out of point, I'll create a group with the writer and you'll give them instructions on what they should do.
I need you to be a very diplomatic and emotionally intelligent person. Most of us creative people tend to have skoin skoin, and it takes a person with depth of character to navigate these issues and get the best from the writers who are all experts in their own rights.
Please have a computer. It's needed.
If this sounds like you, let's chat. You can start your message by introducing yourself and convincing me why you and I have to work together.
I probably won't be able to reply messages that begin otherwise.

Many thanks to all who applied. I've hired a few and I'm happy with their output so far.
There's a vacancy for two more outstanding individuals. If you have a strong writing background, it's a big plus.
