EditingCrossing Launches with About 2,000 Active Editor Job Openings
EmploymentCrossing, one of the world’s largest job-search sites, recently launched EditingCrossing, a job-search site exclusively for editorial jobs. Searching for an editing job typically requires going to multiple websites to find job listings: publishers’ websites, media and public relations websites, and multiple job boards. EditingCrossing seeks to consolidate every active editing job in one place.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, editors held about 122,000 jobs in 2006, one third of which were in the information technology sector. Furthermore, the bureau says that employment of editors is expected to grow by 10% over the 2006-2016 decade. This growth rate is similar to the average growth rate for all occupations.
The CEO of EditingCrossing, A. Harrison Barnes, says, “In this market it is extremely hard to get a job with a recruiter, and recruiters typically work with very few companies. Job openings that are not widely known or publicized are the easiest jobs to get, and our researchers scour numerous sources for those kinds of jobs.”
According to Barnes, the most popular searches on the site have been:
online editing jobs
book editing jobs
copy editing jobs
editing jobs Chicago

assistant editor jobs
book editor jobs
contract editing jobs
medical editor jobs
publishing editing jobs

writing and editing jobs
magazine editing jobs
technical editing jobs
Barnes emphasizes that EditingCrossing is committed to finding new sources of jobs on a daily basis.
“EditingCrossing is a research company that works for job seekers. We have developed a database of a large number of editing jobs,” Barnes says. “We seek to connect you to employers.”
EditingCrossing charges job seekers $29.95 to look at its job-opening research. However, it is currently offering a free, seven-day trial to allow users to familiarize themselves with the service. The free trial is available to everyone on the site’s registration page for a limited time.
