Entry-Level Editorial Assistant Salary

Entry-Level Editorial Assistants aren't exactly in the most profitable line of business; these folks earn a belt-tightening average of $34K per year. Geographic location and the company each impact pay for this group, with the former having the largest influence. Unfortunately, some people in this line of work are without benefits — slightly less than a fourth lack coverage. On the flip side, a fair number have medical insurance and more than half receive dental plans. The majority of workers are highly satisfied with their job.
