Hire Andrea in 2014!

Andrea M. Rotondo • writer / editorAre you look­ing for an edi­to­r­ial rock star to join your team? I’m cur­rently seek­ing full-time, senior-level edi­to­r­ial or project man­age­ment posi­tions that are loca­tion inde­pen­dent or in the Sanibel/ Captiva/ Ft. Myers area of Florida’s Gulf Coast. I’m a self-motivated, detail-oriented edi­tor with proven lead­er­ship skills. I’m equally at home col­lab­o­rat­ing with in-house staff and remote teams as well as free­lance edi­tors, design­ers, and third-party vendors.

As a senior edi­tor at Ster­ling Pub­lish­ing, I acquire and edit a diverse list of books and kits (book plus com­po­nents) for pro­pri­etary place­ment in Barnes & Noble book­stores. I man­age sched­ules for the entire team, super­vi­sor in-house project edi­tors and free­lance edi­tors, and liai­son between project part­ners, includ­ing authors, edi­tors, design­ers, pro­duc­tion man­agers, and sales associates.

My col­leagues will tell you that I’m an expert when it comes to project man­age­ment with acu­men in sched­ul­ing and traf­fick­ing pub­li­ca­tions through production.

My employ­ers con­sis­tently praise my abil­ity to effec­tively work with peo­ple, man­age title devel­op­ment, and solve issues before they become problems.

My proud­est accom­plish­ment, though, is the fact that peo­ple want to work with me on a daily basis. I’m a calm­ing force on any team and have the abil­ity to moti­vate and men­tor oth­ers… prob­a­bly because I roll up my sleeves to do what­ever it takes to make the pub­li­ca­tion sig­nif­i­cant to its readers.

I’m also avail­able for free­lance edi­to­r­ial work, espe­cially writ­ing, blog­ging, social media man­age­ment, and proof­read­ing. I’ve writ­ten hun­dreds of fea­ture arti­cles, Q&As, and front-of-book pieces. I’m also an excel­lent devel­op­men­tal edi­tor and proof­reader. In addi­tion, I’m knowl­edge­able across a range of web site con­tent man­age­ment sys­tems, like Word­Press and Textpat­tern and can write with SEO in mind.
