Editor Jobs

Editor Job Overview

Editors prepare content so that it is ready to be printed. There are different positions within this occupation. Copy editors proofread documents and verify that the facts contained within them are correct. Publication assistants read and evaluate submitted documents to determine if they are fit to print. Assistant editors cover the editing work for a certain subject, such as sports or local news. If an editor is especially competent and hard-working, he or she may be promoted to the position of executive editor, where one determines which stories are published, hires and oversees other writers and editors, and plans and negotiates their contracts. In addition to these specialized tasks, editors also proofread content and rewrite it so it is easier to understand. They determine which submissions will be published and how they will be laid out on a page or website. Editors also work with writers and team members to plan and revise material for books, magazines, newspapers and websites.

Editor Education Requirements

Editors must have a bachelor's degree in a subject such as English, journalism or communications. They need strong writing, proofreading and computer skills. Editors must also have skills that cannot be taught in the classroom; they must be detail-oriented, they must be able to read large amounts quickly and thoroughly, and they should have some knowledge on a wide variety of subjects. Editor positions generally do not offer much on-the-job training, and no certifications are required.

Editor Job Market

The demand for editor jobs is expected to remain consistent over the next decade. Editors may find themselves working in more online positions though newspaper and book editor jobs will not be obsolete. Editors will always be needed to prepare a variety of texts for print.

Editor Job Salary

Editors make an average of $53,880 per year or $25.90 per hour. They can make as little as $33,000 or as much as $80,000 a year.
