Copy Editor Reviews

What is it like working as a Copy Editor?
Copy Editor in Chennai:
"A Copy Editors Anguish."
Pros: The job is an interesting one. Especially when you have a love for books, I am sure one wouldn't explore any other job options. When one delves deep into copy editing, a satisfactory and enriching experience awaits. For the very passionate person, there are multiple avenues to express talent. After a few years of experience, one can go for certificate exams conducted by the British council. If you are technology savvy, you can get into technical writing. You can learn a new language and work as a translator as well. This starting point can take you many places.
Cons: Not the job per se. It is about the work environment, team, pay, and supervisor. The attitude of your supervisor and team members can be frustrating sometimes. While the supervisor will try to lord over you, the team members can be chinks in the armor.
