Industries & Professions /
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment for editors and writers, while highly competitive, will experience little or no change through 2022. Opportunities will be better on small daily and weekly newspapers, where the pay is lower. Online publications are also expected to offer more opportunities for editors and writers. Also, some publications hire freelance editors to support reduced full-time staffs. And, as experienced editors leave the workforce or move to other fields, job openings will occur.
