Textbook Editor Resume Sample

Textbook editors have a lot of interest in reading and education. They must also have a big knowledge of the English language and they must be well-versed in a specific subject. There aren’t many educational institutions that offer a degree or a specialization in editing textbooks; so an editor may be a science field expert or an Arts graduate.

Working as a textbook editor can very stressful, specially if you are working under a deadline. Sometimes you may have to work overtime. The job market is wide and some growth is expected. The salary is average but you can have higher incomes by doing freelance work in your spare time.

A textbook editor resume sample must contain all references from past works, as many editing jobs are obtained by providing professional references.
