Newspaper Editors


According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment for editors and writers is highly competitive, with employment projected to decline 3 percent through 2028. 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. Newspaper editors with relevant experience and skills working with a variety of electronic and digital tools will have the best job prospects.
