"Editor: one who prepares the work of others for publication." (The Concise Oxford Dictionary, 7th ed., 1982)

This job demands people skills, leadership skills, and confidence for making big decisions.

Why?•I enjoy being a head editor (of the yearbook), it allows me to influence my ideas into a working product and work with other creative people. It's a job that is never the same. Magazines are the modern way of having a print source as newspapers slowly decrease due to online sources.
