Editorial and Research Assistants
Editorial and research assistants must be expert communicators,
so you should excel in English. You must learn to write extremely
well, since you will be correcting and even rewriting the work of
others. If elective classes in writing are available in your
school, take them. Take journalism and speech courses. Work as a
writer or editor for the school paper. Since virtually all
editorial and research assistants use computers, take computer
courses and learn how to type quickly and accurately and use the
Internet and conduct online research.
