Please have a look at what I do, my ethos and experience here. The academic job market is highly competitive, and everything counts in your dossier, from presentation and paper down to punctuation and capitalization. I also offer academic editorial services for dissertations. I charge in 5-minute increments for graduate student clients.
The job dossier service may include (but is not limited to):
Job dossier proofreading and copyediting: $40/hour
I can proofread and copyedit your full job dossier for consistency across documents in style and tone, as well as check for redundancies. I recommend that you have your committee chair or a trusted advisor in your field review your dossier before you bring it to me for proofreading and copyediting. This service is done in-text using the track changes feature in Word, and can include formatting upon request.
Writing sample proofreading and copyediting: $40/hour
Make sure your writing sample is letter-perfect. In addition to proofreading and copyediting, this service can include formatting upon request. This service is done in-text using the track changes feature in Word.
Developmental editing: $50/hour
Developmental editing can include (but is not limited to):
- cover letters
- teaching statements
- research statements
- curriculum vitae
- sample syllabi
If you will be paying me through your institution, there is a paperwork fee of $20.
I also accept payment directly through PayPal and Chase QuickPay for no extra charge.
