Fragen aus Vorstellungsgesprächen für editor, von Bewerbern geteilt
If you had to criticize someone else's work that was not up to par, how would you approach this?
The outcome would be case-dependant but generally: 1. Politely thank them for their effort. 2. Tell them the work needs a lot of improvement and point out concrete examples of why (often showing direct edits of work is enough). 3. Either give them firm conditions to be met for the next assignment or in the case of freelancers delivering poor work, immediately let them know I'm no longer interested in receiving their work.
