Market Demand

Due to a decline in the number of print publications, little or no change in employment is expected between 2012 and 2022. Because of this decline, there will be a significant amount of competition for jobs. Those with electronic media experience will likely be in the best position to obtain jobs.

Education

Most editors have degrees in English, communications or journalism, and other related courses. However, in some cases, writing experience and strong grammar skills may be sufficient for employment. Many editors have extensive writing experience and may have knowledge in the subject area of the material they edit. Participating in an internship or working at a high school or college newspaper can give you valuable experience in the field.
