Job Description for Editor
For presented work in any media, an editor plays a crucial role. They typically work with words to help writers refine their styles and correct grammar and spelling errors. While there are editors in film, broadcasting, news production, and a variety of other media, a standard editor is someone who makes adjustments to material created and prepared by others before offering that content for outside consumption.Read More...
Many editors work with written content, normally either submitted by staff or freelance writers. For these editors, a key aspect of the job is understanding the aims and audience of the work. As an example, editors for web content and blogs may prefer a relaxed blogging style that allows for flexibility and creativity in verbiage, style, and spelling. Other editors require writers to adhere to formal style guides, such as AP or MLA, and adjust written content to fit them.
While some editors may work within print, many today work in online media, and editors in either help assign news stories, features, or content among a stable group of writers and subcontracted freelancers. Many editors also assist in the visual layout of content, which can include offering input to a layout editor in print work. Many editors in the online sphere are expected to not only adjust and alter content for space and appropriateness, but also to assemble and post it online. For editors in the web space, familiarity with HTML and web page layout software may be required for some positions.
Editors must have strong written communication skills. For work in professional media, many companies require editors to have degrees in journalism, communications, or other related disciplines from four-year universities. The requirements for many web editing jobs may be lighter in formal education, but may stress strong subject familiarity and practical experience. Most editors work long hours in a newsroom or office environment during the week. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
