Do you work on hard copy or electronic documents?
Here on the West Coast, we’re living it like it’s 2018. That means that with very rare exceptions we edit electronically. For developmental editing, that means using the Track Changes function in MS Word; for copyediting, it’s the same. Some documents are proofed in Word while others are proofed in PDF using Acrobat Reader tools. Save that red pencil. It could be valuable someday!
What type of documents do you work on?
GFP works on a range of projects but we specialize in books. Within that we work with every genre, from children’s to cookbooks to romance to business to sci-fi to memoir.
I don’t have Chicago experience but I’m a quick learner. Can I apply and see how I do?
Years of experience have taught us that just winging it with the testing doesn’t work, not for you nor for us.
Do you have any internal positions available?
GFP is a small firm, but that doesn’t mean job opportunities don’t come up. When they do, will you be on our list? If you’d like us to keep your resume on file, please email it and a cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
