Magazine Editors

Advancement Prospects

Employees who start as editorial assistants or proofreaders and show promise generally become copy editors. Copy editors work their way up to become senior editors, managing editors, and editors in chief. In many cases, magazine editors advance by moving from a position on one magazine to the same position with a larger or more prestigious magazine. Such moves often bring significant increases in both pay and status. In some instances well-seasoned magazine editors may leave their full-time positions to start their own magazines.
