      The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is a small nonpartisan agency that provides economic and budgetary analysis to the Congress to aid in policy decisions. The Management, Business, and Information Services division—which provides support services, including editorial and publishing services—seeks an editor. The job involves making analytical and technical reports clear and accessible to a broad audience––including Members of Congress, Congressional staff, researchers, and other members of the public. The work entails substantive editing, copyediting, and proofreading, as well as sometimes reorganizing drafts, rewriting sections, and providing writing assistance.

      Qualifications
      Candidates must have several years of experience in editing professional publications and a bachelor's or advanced degree, preferably in English, journalism, communications, or a related field. They must have broad editorial skills––from a demonstrated ability to make complex and difficult drafts clear and graceful, to a superior eye for detail when proofing. They must thoroughly understand English grammar and syntax and should be sensitive to style and to nuances of tone and meaning in writing and editing. Experience with technical subjects and quantitative information presented in tables and graphs is strongly preferred, as is success in interacting with the authors of such material. Strong interpersonal skills; the ability to handle pressing tasks under deadlines; and the flexibility to work some evenings and weekends, as necessary, are important––so is being able to work comfortably within a desktop publishing system (which uses FrameMaker, Word, Excel, DeltaGraph, and PowerPoint).

      Salary and Benefits
      Salary is competitive and will be commensurate with experience, education, and other qualifications. CBO offers excellent benefits and an appealing work environment.

      How to Apply
      Please submit a cover letter, résumé, salary history, an editing sample, and contact information for three (3) references online at www.cbo.gov/careers. This position is covered by the Veterans Employment Opportunities Act of 1998 as made applicable to CBO by the Congressional Accountability Act, as amended.

        15-08 EDITOR 


        EEO/M/F/V/D 


        Management, Business, and Information Services Division

        The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is a small nonpartisan agency that provides economic and budgetary analysis to the Congress to aid in policy decisions. The Management, Business, and Information Services division—which provides editorial and publishing services for the agency—seeks an editor. The job involves making analytical and technical reports clear and accessible to a broad audience––including Members of Congress, Congressional staff, researchers, and other members of the public. The work routinely entails substantive editing, copyediting, and proofreading but also includes reviewing and reorganizing drafts, providing writing assistance, and rewriting portions of drafts. 


        Qualifications 

        CBO is seeking an editor with extraordinary talent—someone who can see both the forest and the trees, who can transform drafts if necessary and can catch small errors that others miss. Candidates must have several years of experience in editing professional publications and a bachelor’s or advanced degree, preferably in English or another field within the humanities. They must have broad editorial skills––ranging from being able to reliably guide authors in writing and organizing drafts, to making complex and difficult drafts clear and graceful, to proofreading with a superior eye for detail. They must thoroughly understand English grammar and syntax and should be sensitive to style and to nuances of tone and meaning in writing and editing. Experience with technical subjects and quantitative information presented in tables and graphs is required. 

        Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to be effective in a process for composition and review that sometimes involves many people are important––so is being able to work comfortably within a desktop publishing system. Candidates must be able to handle pressing tasks under deadlines and must have the flexibility to work some evenings and weekends, as necessary. 


        Salary and Benefits 

        Salary is competitive and will be commensurate with experience, education, and other qualifications. CBO offers excellent benefits and an appealing work environment. 


        How to Apply 

        Please submit a cover letter, résumé, salary history, an editing sample (see FAQs on CBO’s website for a description), and contact information for three references at www.cbo.gov/careers by November 9, 2014. This position is covered by the Veterans Employment Opportunities Act of 1998 as made applicable to CBO by the Congressional Accountability Act, as amended.

          Responsibilities include supervising a group charged with editing, graphic design, and report production; planning and coordinating that work; serving as a principal in setting standards for publications; managing relevant processes, in coordination with staff of other divisions and the Director’s Office; tracking drafts and helping to schedule releases; and sometimes serving as the primary editor of documents. The Managing Editor will report to CBO’s Editor in Chief, who is responsible for the overall editorial quality of CBO’s publications. 

          Qualifications 

          Candidates must have at least seven years’ experience editing professional or academic publications similar to those produced at CBO. They must have broad editorial skills––ranging from being able to reliably guide authors in writing and organizing drafts, to making complex and difficult drafts clear and graceful, to finishing documents with care. They must thoroughly understand English grammar and syntax, should be sensitive to style and to nuances of tone and meaning in writing and editing, and should be at ease with technical subjects and quantitative information presented in tables and graphs. Candidates must also have the ability to manage people and processes effectively—including strong interpersonal skills, the ability to support and develop others, and a commitment to customer service; some management experience is preferred. The flexibility to work evenings and weekends, as necessary, is required, as is a bachelor’s or advanced degree, preferably in English or another field within the humanities. 

          Salary and Benefits 

          The salary range begins at $115,000 per year, and the salary will be commensurate with experience, education, and other qualifications. CBO offers excellent benefits and an appealing work environment.
