“Content is anything that adds value in the reader’s life”
You might’ve read this in the description of the position for content writer as well and we’re repeating because intent flows from top. For a whole organisation to understand a mindset, it’s important that the leaders preach that mindset.
The role of a sub-editor/editor is different than that of a writer. While you’ll be involved in writing from a granular level, we’ll also help you learn more about managing content team and leading them from the front.
Leading a set of talented people is a hard thing to do and this is what your fellowship will primarily be based on, along with the usual in-depth knowledge about content. There’s a lot more to editing than just finding grammatical mistakes in an article and by the end of your fellowship, we would’ve touched all the important aspects of it.
Here’s what we’ll be looking in a candidate (not mandatory though):
- For starters, should be a college student having 6 months left in their degree.
- Past experience in writing and team management
- Basic knowledge about content and demographic
- An eye for errors and formatting
- Should demonstrate past experience in leadership
- Willingness to build a career in writing/editing and learn more about it
- Sense of responsibility and patience
- High creative ability than an average writer and a sense of plucking good ideas from the brainstorming tree
- Willingness to take on new challenges and projects
- Good understanding of media and the roles it plays in a society
- Good sense of evaluation and reporting
Experience: Past experience in writing preferred.
We don’t consider fashion blogging and food blogging as writing experiences. While we respect it if you’re doing it, but we don’t consider them while choosing an editor.
