The copy editor (CE) will need to quickly adapt to the guidelines and deliver the files. Time is of essence; we typically have projects that have short turnaround time. The CE will have to adhere to the schedule.
A strong work ethic is an integral part of the job. The CE will have to take complete accountability of the document she or he is checking. CEs are usually the last line of defense before the files go to the client.
The tasks include copyediting assessment material, presentations, essays, passages, and storyboards to ensure the accuracy of facts, grammar, spelling, punctuation, tone, usage, capitalization, and format. The CE must be able to spot inconsistencies quickly and must ensure that the content adheres to the house style.
