Editing is great. There’s a lot to learn beyond being fast including theory, narrative and visual structure and how to work the room Most people thinking they have premier hence they should be an editor. Not how it works. Lots of grunt work but you could experience work beyond ads which could be lucrative and give you some notoriety.

I have a friend who is a big editor in Hollywood now, just started off with no plan and did it because he loved it. I probably need to follow this advice more, but if you do what you love eventually the money will follow.

News editor?

Life is about trade offs. Usually the more fulfilling a job is, the less you make - I’ve come to realize.

That said, it can be an investment in your sanity and future. I encourage you to give it a shot and try something else that will make your profile stronger. Every experience is a stepping stone to your future! You can always come back. Or you can meet new people who will lead you to your next move.
Good luck! 🍀

That first part is not always/usually true. Keep looking and defining how you want to contribute and what gives you joy AND how you can provide financially, too. It's not simply either/or scenario and yes, it does take work and dedication to get things to be how you want them but you are far more in control of your life and circumstances than you realize. It's just that not many are willing to get through the stuff needed to get to where they want to be or they're afraid but either way, must not really be that high of their priority list if they're not pursuing "it"

The pay is a bummer. You’ve got to decide if following your dreams is worth the pay cut...

But you probably need to work on your typo to be an editor though 😅

Follow your passion. Do you think teachers do what they do for the money? I have a friend who is a journalist and only covers wrestling. Very niche and pay is probably equivalent to a McDonald’s manager, but he loves the perks and the experience. Not to mention his wife is the main breadwinner, but I digress.

Life’s too short to be stuck in a job you don’t love.
