Editor

How to become an Editor

Most jobs in this field require a degree in journalism, communications, or English. Editors who specialize in a given field (i.e. fashion, sports, law) will be expected to have a background in their chosen field as well. Some people with good writing skills transfer into editorial positions from careers as technicians, scientists, engineers, or other occupations. Other individuals may begin as trainees or research assistants. Beginning editors often research or check the facts in articles. Advancement usually comes more slowly in large firms than in smaller ones, but also follows a more predictable pattern. In order to advance in this career, it is important for individuals to build a reputation of reliability and credibility

What does an Editor do?

Editors review the writing of others to rewrite and edit the work. An editor's responsibilities will vary depending on the type and level of editorial position held and depending on the employer. Some editing positions also include original writing assignments, particularly for newspapers. Typical duties include planning the content of written material, reviewing story ideas to decide which material will be published, reviewing and editing drafts, and overseeing production of publications.

The executive editor, sometimes called the chief executive editor, is the top editor who is responsible for the content of the published work and overseeing the production of that work. He or she sets the standards and motivates people on the writing staff. Those in position are also often responsible for operational planning. Executive editors often have assistants who hold entry level positions. These assistants frequently hold the position of copy editors who check articles for errors in grammar and punctuation and suggest revisions to improve clarity or accuracy. They may also perform research duties or check facts for writers.

What skills or qualities do I need to become an Editor?

Professionals in this field also need good judgment and a sense of ethics to help determine what material should or should not be published. Finally, computer skills are becoming increasingly important as electronic communication is often necessary in this field.
