The first step to becoming an on demand editor for editorr is creating an account and profile. You will be asked to provide some general information about yourself and to attach a CV or resume. Once you have entered this basic information, you will be directed to our assessment site.
Before we consider an application, we require that applicants take a brief, multiple choice exam. This exam tests applicants’ knowledge, comprehension, and recognition of (American English) spelling, grammatical, contextual, and syntax errors. Some of the questions are easier than others. The minimum passing score is 55 out of 68. If you complete the exam and do not earn a score of 55 or higher, your application will not be considered.
If you successfully pass the exam by scoring 55 or greater, your application will be passed along to our HR Department for further consideration. In time, you will be added to our testing site. Once you have been added to our testing site, you will receive an automated email with login credentials and additional information about our testing site. If you do not receive this automated email within two weeks of passing our multiple choice assessment, please contact us at [email protected] for more information.
Assuming you receive a passing score and are eventually added to editorr’s testing site, you will be instructed to edit two writing samples, one labeled: Cover Letter; the other: Blog Post. There will be several of each type of writing sample on the testing site, please select and edit only one Cover Letter and one Blog Post.
We have multiple copies of each writing sample on our testing site to allow for multiple applicants to complete their testing simultaneously. These writing samples are identical to real jobs we received at one time or another, but they will only be used for assessment purposes. Please rest assured that your suggested redline changes will only be reviewed by our HR Department, they will not be published or otherwise disseminated.
Your performance on the two test jobs will help determine whether or not you are offered a position on our On Demand Editing Team. You will be judged on any corrections (or additions) you make, as well as the speed at which you complete each test job. Please keep in mind, if these writing samples were to be submitted on our live platform, each one would be quoted an estimated turnaround time of approximately 25 minutes (each). Because we recognize applicants are new to our proofreading and editing platform, we do not enforce a strict time limit during the testing phase. That said, we do want our applicants to understand that speed is an important factor of the editorr brand.
If your performance on the test jobs is deemed insufficient, unsatisfactory, or if we simply do not have any openings in your time zone, you will receive an email to that effect. If it has been more than 14 days since you completed the two test jobs and you have yet to receive further communication from the editorr Team, please shoot us an email at [email protected] to confirm that your test jobs were received by our HR Department.
Assuming your performance on our testing site is impressive enough to earn you a spot on our On Demand Editing Team, you will receive an automated “Welcome Email,” providing you with additional information and instructions. Please review this email very carefully. If you have any questions about the Welcome Email, the editorr platform, or editorr’s policies in general, please direct them to the COO or HR Department ([email protected]).
This is obviously only the tip of the iceberg, but we want our applicants to have a clear understanding of what editing for editorr entails before they go to the trouble of submitting an application. If you are unsure as to whether editorr is right for you, feel free to contact us at [email protected] with any lingering questions or concerns!
Thank you for your interest in editorr! Good luck!
