“[Chandra’s] edit test class completely transformed my career. I learned so much in that class that I still use to this day; and Chandra was such a positive, inspiring, knowledgeable teacher who genuinely cared about each student.” — Brooke Schuldt, Social Media Editor, Real Simple
“This class is a MUST for anyone hoping to set themselves apart in a sea of candidates. I took it as an intern, and ever since then I’ve secured offers for every job that’s required an edit test. Sign! Up!”— Allison Berry, Senior Editor, Branded, Bustle.com
When it comes to landing a job in media, do you feel like you’re always the bridesmaid and never the bride? You keep making it to the final round — and you know they loved you in the interview! — but yet … no offer?
You need to up your edit test game.
Ed’s here to help. Chandra Turner has been teaching her “Ace Your Edit Test” class for more than 10 years and has helped hundreds of editors finally get the offers they deserve (read all testimonials here). This class has expanded over the years to help you master all edit tests — print, digital, and social media. For the first time, Chandra will be teaching the class virtually (so you can take it in your pjs) and at your convenience (meaning, you sign up, we’ll schedule around you).
The 2019 “Ace Your Edit Test” will cover:
• how to properly research the brand and use that research in your test
• what hiring managers look for in copywriting, writing samples, and ideas
• what hiring managers look for in editing samples, and how to properly show your work
• how to provide a professional critique for a website / vertical / magazine section
• how to write in the brand’s voice (not as easy as you think!)
• in real time workshopping of actual tests so you can put your learnings into practice
+ free sample tests from big name brands so you know what to expect
+ Q&A with the instructor after each class
Class size is limited. Sign up today.
This class is taught in two parts, 1 1/2 hours each (the first part is prep, the second is workshop) and will be scheduled over 2 days in early October 2019 depending on student availability (likely in the evenings). The class is live online. You’ll be able to access via any browser (Chrome preferred). You’ll be provided a secure link to join before the class.
Note that once the class limit is reached, signups will automatically be declined.
