My Dream Career


With an English degree, a great career path to go into is publishing. There are an array of options like magazines, novels, textbooks, newspapers, pamphlets, advertising, etc. For me, I love to read and would love nothing more than to have a career at Scholastic Inc. If you enjoy magazines, there are countless topics and genres to choose from: architecture, fashion, gossip, science, art, and the list goes on and on. If you love sharing information through the written word, publishing could be for you!

Depending on the size of the company, publishers can copy edit, supervise the many different levels of publishing (graphic design, editing, writing, etc.), manage deadlines, meet with authors and agents, market… Basically, they are in charge. This career relies on communication, writing, reading, and leadership skills.

Publishing is popular in larger cities like New York City, Chicago, London, or San Francisco, but also can be found in smaller urban areas throughout the world. Local newspapers and magazines require a publisher, so don’t think you’ll have to pack up and move to a large city if that’s not what interests you!

The options are endless, so start looking for internships and find out if this is the career for you!
