Reading Publishing Job Advertisements

Jan 31, 2021

Episode 108 of Live

Are you looking for an Editorial job yet only searching for roles with the job title Editorial Assistant? Likewise are you looking for Marketing roles, and only searching for jobs with the job title Marketing Assistant? Publishing has moved on, shouldn’t the job titles you search for move on too?

Likewise, have you ever applied for a role, been successful in the process then really disappointed because the job was not what you thought it would be? You think you’ve been mis-sold the role, but the truth is you never read the job advertisement – the whole job advertisement – in any detail.

In this episode of Live we give you a whistle-stop insight into reading and understand job advertisements. You’ll learn the best way to read through and understand an advertisement, which also might help you understand whether a role is for you, regardless of the job title.
