gigs-775764184@craigslist.org : http://dayton.craigslist.org/wrg/775764184.html
Independant advertising creative director needs a reliable editor/proofreader to keep him out of trouble. Work will be sporadic at first but will increase as new accounts are acquired. Mix of B2B (some of it high tech) and consumer advertising. Mostly print ads and direct marketing. Moonlighting hours are ok for some of the assignments, but regular business hours and the occasional weekend fire drill are also required. You'll need to work from MS Word decks and PDF layouts via email and/or fax — unless you're within a few miles of my '20 and prefer to mark-up hard copies. Interested, qualified parties please respond to this post with your credentials, contact info, desired rate and — if you have 'em — a few work samples. Oh, and not catching the error in this ad copy (no, not the spoofed headline, silly) will earn your response a free trip to the circular file!
