    This one always kills me. So if you're a kick-ass copy editor, but your paper's circulation is 49,999, they don't want you?

    50,000 plus is <i>preferred</i> I'm sure they wouldn't care too much about 1 person, heck even a 25,000 copy editor probably would have a good shot.

    They probably would prefer a copy editor capable of reading, though.

    Why even bother saying you prefer 50,000 or more, except for trying to weed out some extra resumes? A good copy editor is a good copy editor, regardless of circulation.

    Meanwhile, they may miss out on hiring somebody really good just because they don't want to leaf through some extra resumes.

    It's not a strict rule. I got an interview there and the SE seemed like a great guy.l

    They're basically saying they want someone with a little more experience than the Hooterville World-Guardian.

    I'm sure there are plenty of good candidates without a college degree, also. But most places require one. They're willing to streamline the process at the risk of never seeing a complete list of candidates.

    Duke is the best. While it doesn't mean as much as Moddy's, working for Duke has my double-seal of approval.
