5 Common Career Paths For a Writer

Editor

An editor is the one responsible for polishing and refining a story, article, and any material for publication in newspapers, magazines, books, or websites. Editors have the power to either accept or reject a material as they need to ensure that every manuscript which will be offered for publishing is at the best version as it can be. There are several types of editors, from copy editors, books to managing editors, but they have few skills in common, like strong writing skills, good judgment, and leadership abilities to help guide the whole editorial team. Most of them work in the office, but it is quite becoming more regular for them to work remotely.

Technical Writer

Technical Writers specialize in producing easy-to-understand instructional or informational written materials, such as media and journal articles, assessments and guidelines, and legal forms of documentation. For Technical Writers to develop well-versed content, one must conduct thorough research on the topic or idea to ensure factual legitimacy and communicate with those whose expertise aligns with the subject. Aside from producing, Technical Writers can also improve or convert complex written materials such as operating manuals or documents into one that can be easily understood by the general public.

Consultant

Consultants are individuals who were tapped by a company or an organization to work on a specific activity, depending on their field of expertise. They act as guides for the organization in undertaking projects that are related to their field. Consultants would usually assist organizations in planning, often giving advice when the need arises. They would, at times, take the lead in activities that involve data gathering and interpretation of data gathering results so that they can provide solid recommendations on actions that the organization may undertake. They may also guide the organization in implementing any changes brought about by their consultancy and in evaluating the effectiveness of the changes.

Writer And Editor

Writing is not an easy task, so a Writer and an Editor must work together to deliver quality content. A writer's role is to gather information to create a structured written material that would serve its purpose, whether for recreational or informational. Moreover, it is the Editor's responsibility to oversee and examine what the Writer has produced. From this, the Editor will provide feedback, corrections or suggestions, and guidelines that the Writer can follow to improve the material.

Account Executive

An account executive is responsible for supporting existing clients, closing client deals, and developing sales strategies to increase the company's sales and satisfaction. An account executive must be competitive enough to keep up with the constant changes in the sales industry, including the high demands of digital marketing, a different approach to product advertising, effective negotiation, and presentation skills. An account executive also requires excellent communication skills for the successful acquisition of client accounts and immediately resolve possible complaints as they arise.

What is the highest-paid writing job?

A successful novelist is the highest-paying writing job. Established novelists can earn millions of dollars based on book sales. There are other writing jobs aside from being a novelist that also pay well.

What jobs can I do as a writer?

Jobs for someone interested in a writing career range from conventional corporate employment to independent or self-employed work. These varied jobs represent a wide range in salary and availability. Many writers will end up working in a corporate setting.

These writing jobs typically have traditional hours and a pay structure. Corporate writing jobs such as technical writing involve the creation of written manuals and instructions to accompany industry-specific products. Communications managers, who are tasked with controlling the image and message of a company, are hired by many private employers.

Self-employed writers do not work in a traditional corporate setting. These writers can work from home and create their own hours. Some self-employed writers accept writing assignments with deadlines. These freelance writers have an assigned topic and completion date and may work for multiple publications simultaneously.
