Dear Candidate,

***You must be available at least 5 days a week between 7pm and 12 midnight or later (BC/SK/AL) – more is preferable.***

***All jobs are per-contract based and vary widely***

We are an editing service that primarily caters to high school and university/college students, ESL students, and graduates. We require accurate (attention to detail), fast (able to take on 15~min per page edits), and reliable (able to work at home while providing great editing every time). Editing includes fixing via Microsoft Word’s Track Changes: spelling, grammar, word choice, flow, consistency, run-on sentences, sentence fragments, and punctuation. Editors also provide comments to guide clients through any necessary improvements. We EDIT – this is MORE than just proofreading. We make the necessary changes (not factual) and leave comments to guide clients through any required improvements.If you are opposed to this type of editing (copy editing for students), please do not apply.You will be paid on a per-contract basis and are told prior to accepting each job the pay, requirements etc. You are under no obligation to accept any editing assignment. We are looking for west coast (BC/Alberta/SK) based editors. We want the cream of the crop – mediocre editing is not what we do. We pride ourselves on in- depth editing and accept editors who genuinely care about helping students succeed. You must have graduated from a university in Canada, the UK or USA and should preferably have editing experience either professionally or in an academic environment. An ideal editor would be a university graduate, masters student, teaching assistant, professor, or teacher – this means you should be up to date on current writing standards for primarily American English, Canadian English/British English. We need editors who are great at picking out issues and fixing them, providing comments/critiques, and making many changes in general via Microsoft Word’s Track Changes (you must have Microsoft Word). It is an asset if you have knowledge of and can work with the various citation styles (MLA, APA etc) – Please mention if you can check citations. We will vet you if your application is what we are looking for, this includes a test edit.Attach your resume, specify your availability and how you can access your emails.

We look forward to vetting you, Thank you
