Job Description for Associate Editor
Associate editors play a key supporting managerial role for web- and print-based media outlets. These professionals may work under an editor of a specific section or subject (such as “associate editor for technology”), or they may be the second-in-command to an overarching editor or editor in chief. A key part of the associate editor’s job is to ensure content fits their organization's style and standards. They often work with staff and/or freelance content producers (such as writers and videographers), editing their producers' work for style and content.

After editing is complete, the associate editor sends the written work to the next step in the publications process; for example, they may post the completed work online, send it to a copy editor, or send it to the section editor. Additionally, the associate editor may be required to locate appropriate visuals, text, and/or video to accompany content.Read More...
