Editing Gigs on Craigslist: An Experiment

So, I apply for a lot of jobs on Craigslist that I’m sure other people are applying for too. I’m curious about how other editors format their resumes and what sort of reels they’re giving out. I mean, I just have no idea what my competition is like or how many people apply for any given job that’s posted.

And then I was talking to F about his resume and how he didn’t know how ADs really formatted them and he was thinking of posting a Craigslist ad just to see what other people’s resumes looked like. This struck me as totally genius.

Here is the mediocre job I posted on FCP, apparent as not real primarily because of the correct spelling.

I need an editor with their own FCP setup to finish a short project; everything’s been digitized and assembled, just need an editor to make a good pass and solid cut. Drive will be provided.

$100 for the work. Please submit online reel and resume. Include the word “Fun” in your subject so that I know you’ve read the ad.

I shall let you know how it goes.  I’ll be keeping track of the following

1. how many e-mails I get

2. how many e-mails have resumes

3. how many e-mails have reels

4. how many e-mails have the word “fun” in their subject

    I think so. It’s like working as a casting director gave me insight into what a good headshot is.
