Thank you for visiting my job posting. Please include the answer to this question in the subject line of your application so that I know you have read the posting. What does 7+4=?
We are looking for someone who is willing to edit/proofread 250 recipes (250 recipes = approx. 34,000 words) for our cookbook. The recipes were made by someone who writes English as a second language, so there will be errors that need to be fixed to make the cookbook flow fluently.
It would be helpful if you are familiar with cooking or recipe writing as you will therefore already understand the style of recipe writing. However, this experience is not essential for this job.
Since these are recipes, highlighting missing ingredients (sometimes there are ingredients in the ingredients list but not the directions list or vice versa), inconsistent cooking times, duplicate recipes etc. are all elements of this job as well as the basically spelling/grammar editing to make the writing flow smoothly.
We are looking for someone who is a native English speaker/writer or someone who is 100% confident with their English writing skills.
Please, if you choose to apply for this job, hand in some of your past work as this will help you greatly towards the selection process.
Remember to include the answer to 7+4=? in the subject line of your application.
P.S. There is more work available for those applicants that prove to do a great job.
