Writing and Editing
Writers and editors with Web and multimedia experience will have the best odds of finding work in the coming years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The outlook for other fields is not as promising, however. The overall employment of writers and authors will be slower than the average for all occupations through 2022. Editors are expected to experience little or no change in employment, but traditional editing jobs in print newspapers and magazines will continue to decline. Editing opportunities with online media will increase slightly. Opportunities for technincal writers, however, will increase about as fast as the average for all jobs through 2022.
