Industries & Professions /
Little or no employment change is expected for editors through 2020, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Competition for editing jobs will remain intense, since many people want to enter the field. It will be especially difficult to land a job with newspaper and magazine publishers. Book publishing will remain particularly competitive, since many people still view the field in a romantic light. Much of the expansion in publishing is expected to occur in non-publishing industries, where businesses will be looking for editors with strong technology skills to create and manage content for their Web sites and other online ventures.
