Since, thanks to Kaylin, we’ve been referring to Pace Communications in Greensboro, let’s examine a description for an opening there called senior editor.
This is a full-time position at the mid-senior level, requiring five to seven years of professional experience. It’s not an entry-level job, but it speaks to the future for people who refine their skills in editing and writing. It’s a job for a word person. The agency also has a lower-level position called editor, and we have a few Elon grads in those slots.
Here’s the position summary:
The Senior Editor leads the creation of all assets for an account or various work streams on an account or project, as an editor and/or writer. Reports to the Creative Director or Associate Creative Director.
This person is responsible for writing and editing all content types including video scripts, short-and-long form articles, white papers, digital and social, display and body copy. Candidates must have a deep understanding of the emotional and tactical needs for target audiences, channels and platforms.
