I got another job interview

January 24th, 2012 at 07:38 pm

Just got a call from another company whose job posting I responded to last week.

It's a FULL-TIME SALARIED WITH BENEFITS job as a web copywriter with an Internet marketing company.

It may not be a perfect fit, but I'm pretty sure I'm at least a 75% fit. They want someone with diverse writing experience doing web content, press releases, blog posts and articles. That's definitely me, and just like what i did at my last f/t job at a personal finance consumer website.

They also want someone who knows both AP and Chicago style. I know AP.

They want someone who knows basic HTML for linking and keyword research and writing SEO copy. I can do this, although I guess we were spoiled at my last job becus there was a dedicated person who did all the keyword research for us writers.

But they also want someone with knowledge of Hoot Suite, Facebook, Twitter etc. Although I have accounts with Facebook and Twitter, I don't at all feel fluent in them and rarely use them.

So the interview's set up with 2 people for Friday afternoon. It's about a 50-minute drive. Of course, it would be far preferable to the publishing job.

And as I feel like the imminent end of unemployment benefits is looming overhead, along with an expected big jump in the cost of my COBRA in June, the timing, if I got the job, could not be more perfect.

    Cool! How exciting is that? Of course, still accept the other job if you get offered it before you hear back about this one, right?

    As far as I can tell, the big differences between AP & Chicago are that Chicago uses the serial ("Oxford") comma, lowercases all prepositions in headline copy (even ones longer than 3 letters), and italicizes book titles. I haven't edited to Chicago very often, but I've never gotten complaints. If you know AP, you can pick up Chicago very quickly.

    Good luck!!
