If you enjoy writing, have an eye for detail and an excellent grasp of grammar, a career in editing might be perfect for you. There are actually a variety of different editing jobs, such as proofreading and copy editing. Working as a developmental editor means that you work closely with an author to help them fine tune their book. An editorial assistant takes on a variety of different tasks, often at a newspaper or magazine office. And an executive editor at a magazine or newspaper has overall responsibility over the content and what to print. But for most of us, editing means carefully reading through a piece of text looking for errors and spelling mistakes, and you can find plenty of these jobs online. One appeal of working in the editing industry is that it’s an easy field in which to freelance.
