Editorial and Research Assistants
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment of editorial workers such as editorial and research assistants will about as fast as the average through 2018. Although the publishing industry was hit hard by the recent economic recession, resulting in several years of unfavorable job growth for editorial careers, there should be more opportunities for editorial and research assistants in a variety of industries in the next decade, as more companies create a stronger Web presence. Editorial and research assistants with strong technology skills will be needed to help organize and shape content for online publishing. Competition for these jobs will remain intense, since so many people want to enter the field. Much of the expansion in publishing is expected to occur in newspapers, periodicals, book publishers, nonprofit organizations, online publications, and advertising and public relations.
