What is a Career in Editorial?
If you have your eye on an editorial career, you’re probably analyzing this sentence right now—editorial requires a love for taking ordinary words and transforming them into something fresh and engaging.
But you’ll do a lot more than nit-picking paragraphs as a writer, journalist, editor, or content strategist. Whether you’re reporting late-breaking current events, editing feature stories, or handling content-based marketing for a brand or product, you’ll also be responsible for crafting the voice of a company or publication.
If you lean toward the marketing side, you’ll find yourself creating and perfecting print and web content in every form—social media, email newsletters, online marketing, blogs, press releases, and everything else that involves words. Or, if you venture into the realm of newspapers or magazines, you’ll be writing, reporting, and helping other authors transform their work into must-reads.
