Giulia Drummond is our team member from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, since the year 2013. Working as an editor and leading her team of editors. She is assisting the authors in reaching their dream to publish their books and helping other editors to do the same.
We are delighted to share this interview with you.
1. What do you do at Omniscriptum?
I am an editor while I also supervise and help my team of editors in South America. I prioritize my supervision work because I believe it is essential for the company. Performing the same tasks my editors do helps a lot. I can identify problems first hand and come with solutions sooner. My team consists of seven editors and five staff members. I also work as a freelancer trainer – helping editors who work remotely. In this team, I have six editors, most of them from Rio, Brazil. If they perform well, I hire them as office editors.
2. What does your typical day look like?
Usually, I start with my editor’s requests; then, I proceed with my editorial duties. There is never the end of the workday for me. Since we work from home, editors might need help at any time of the day. Luckily I am very focused, so when I sit to work, I get up when the work is done. Nevertheless, I keep in mind other people are more easily distracted, and completing the tasks of the day can be a challenge. What I like the most about working from home is flexibility.
3. What authors should know about Omniscriptum?
We are a genuine business trying to elevate the research the author worked so much. One of the most significant changes we have implemented for Portuguese speaking authors is Boleto payment method, for sure!
4. What do you like best about what you do?
I like how we try to continually improve our services, attending our author’s needs as much as possible.
5. Tell us a random fact about you.
I don’t like Nutella. 😮
