It is pretty strange....reading earlier comments....that most of the editing I do happens to be from engineers....technical people with savvy.....who  depend on me to polish their work...but hey, what do I know?

There are people (including many Upwork contractors) who feel like they can do anything and everything. They are good at everything. They have a copy of Photoshop they bought in college. They're a graphic artist. They have OpenOffice installed on their laptop. They're a writer. They downloaded Eclipse. They're a programmer. That's fine. I think that's a great, positive attitude.

 

I'm not going to hire somebody like that, but I don't begrudge them the opportunity to try a lot of things and do a lot of things for themselves and gain a lot of experience.
