One question. Are these sorts of editorial roles normally filled by full time staff, or is it someone who works part time in their evenings or something?

Joe Wikert

Hi Michael. This particular position is full-time.

Michael Still

Do these sorts of people normally work remotely, or are they all based in an office together? I ask not because I'm looking for work (I'm kinda over employed at the moment), but more out of curiousity about how the publishing industry works...

Joe Wikert

The real answer is "it depends". It depends on the company, on the editorial group within the company, on the management philosophy of that team, etc. There are 12 acquisitions editors in my groups at Wiley. Approximately half of them work in one of our offices (Hoboken, San Francisco and Indianapolis) and the other half work remotely.
