My suggestion is to become familiar with a typical job description for
an editor and market your writing skills to match the skills required
for an editor.

Good luck,
Pamela

Subject: Selling yourself as an editor

As we've had in conversations before, we've all gone
by many job titles and worn many hats over the years.

I'm looking at an interesting position: This position
provides both content and copy editing of technical
articles accepted for publication. You will be
responsible for editing articles for organization,
syntax, grammar, and spelling and doing copy edits for
our e-mail newsletters. You will also ensure that
articles and newsletters follow department's style
guides and work with authors and technical editors to
ensure accuracy of content.....Looking for someone
with a B.S. and/or experience in technical writing...

I'm accustomed to targeting resumes as a technical
writer, but never as an editor.

Any suggestions on key elements to emphasize?
