Editorial Assistants

Education and Training Requirements

High School

Editorial 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.
