Editorial Assistant Jobs

Editorial Assistant Overview


Editorial assistants are entry level employees who may be employed at publishing houses, newspapers or magazines. Their duties typically involve clerical tasks such as filing or answering phones, but the exact duties assigned to them will vary based on employer. Some editorial assistants are in charge of online presence, handling a company’s social reputation and social media presence. With the current decline of the publishing industry, job availability may be slimmer than it has ever been; however, there is still a demand for editorial assistants in regard to online work.

Editorial Assistant Education Requirements


A minimum of a bachelor’s degree in journalism, communications, creative writing, or a related field is required to become an editorial assistant although many find themselves employed before finishing school in a sort of internship, which allows them to gain first-hand knowledge of the industry. In addition, an eye for detail is required, particularly for tasks such as filing. Strong social skills are also necessary not only for interacting with visitors and callers but for managing social networking sites.

Editorial Assistant Job Market


The job market for editorial assistants is expected to decline by 2 percent by 2022 in parallel with the publishing industry. However, there is still a projected annual opening of 2,800 positions due to replacements and upward advancement, and editorial assistants can expect their tasks to be more focused on the online side of publishing.

Editorial Assistant Salary


Editorial assistants may start with hourly wages as low as $10 to $12, but certain companies may offer higher wages in the range of $15 to $20 after a short time. Annual salaries can reach as high as $44,000 for large houses. The wage an editorial assistant is paid is determined by their experience, their duties, and the size of the publishing house, newspaper, or magazine they work for. For instance, someone working for a nationally renowned newspaper would likely make much more than someone working for the local gazette.
