Outlook

Employment for editors is expected to decline by 5 percent through 2024, 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 (employment for editors at newspaper, periodical, book, and directory publishers is expected to decline by 22 percent through 2024). 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.
