sub editor interview questions shared by candidates
What is it about your personality that will help you in this role?
I explained that I am friendly, I don't get flustered easily and I like to problem-solve. Because of the pressure and deadlines associated with this role, I feel like my cool head will benefit me, plus I'm social and interested in other people - therefore can forge good working relationships, even during difficult, high-pressured times.
Nothing was particularly difficult or unexpected. The interviewer talked about my previous work history and we discussed finding the right balance between speed and accuracy when subbing copy.
