Odd-one-out exercises can be beneficial for learning for several reasons:

Encourage critical thinking: Odd-one-out exercises require individuals to analyze and compare various items or concepts and identify the difference that sets one apart. This activity, thus, helps to develop critical thinking skills as they need to assess and evaluate different elements logically and systematically.

Improve observation skills: Odd-one-out exercises require individuals to pay close attention to detail and notice not-so-easy differences between various items or concepts. Possessing an eye for detail is an essential quality of a copyeditor, and this activity helps hone that quality.

Enhance memory retention: Odd-one-out exercises can be a great way to improve memory retention. As learners try to identify the difference between various items, they need to remember the characteristics of each item and compare them between items. This can help strengthen memory skills and improve recall.

Make learning fun: Odd-one-out exercises can be an engaging and entertaining way to learn. They can help break up the monotony of traditional learning methods and keep individuals engaged and interested in the subject matter.

Overall, odd-one-out exercises can be a useful tool for developing critical thinking, observation, memory retention, and making learning more enjoyable.

Preparing a copyeditor’s résumé: The basics

Over the past two years, I have been an independent hiring consultant for typesetting companies, screening résumés and interviewing candidates for the role of copyeditor. My previous stints as a copyediting manager also included interviewing and recruiting candidates, which meant that when it was recruitment time, I reviewed a lot of résumés. The screening process is usually an elimination process: with a quick glance, any résumé with spelling mistakes, wrong use of capitalization, messed-up margins, weird spacing, and irregular font sizing would scream for elimination – in that order. When it comes to résumé writing, these small details might disclose how much effort you put in – or did not put in.
