Pr-editor

Is a Pr-editor a dated term or still accepted? And if so, how should one spell it abbreviated without being snickered at as pretentious (or a predator)? Or should it simply be spelled out as a hyphenated term (producer-editor)? Just curious.

Amanda Toney

I haven't heard that term in a while, my gut is to list as producer-editor.

thanks Amanda

I am a preditor, not a predator. Two entirely different things, you can tell by the different spelling. It's a term understood in the industry. That being said, I am listed in the credits as Post Producer / Sr. Editor, for general consumption by lay people.

I think it's a pretty common term is the digital content world. I'd expect to see preditor if, for example, Buzzfeed or StyleHaul posted a job ad.

Out of curiosity, I did a quick search on Indeed.com, and Conde Nast posted a "preditor" job yesterday. Cut and pasted from Indeed.com: Preditor (Producer/Editor), Condé Nast Entertainment Conde Nast - Los Angeles, CA Is able to identify the most compelling visuals to accompany content, and package those for effective sharing....
