Are employers hiring right now?
I am graduating soon and I want to know how likely it is that I will find a job post-grad. I’m looking for a career in publishing, specifically as an editor for fiction books in the young adult genres. career editing writing publishing YA
No one knows how long this stay-at-home situation will continue and no one really knows how that'll impact business' revenue, and as a consequence, their ability to hire. Having said that though, certain businesses are thriving. Business such as Amazon, Zoom, Netflix, etc are doing better than they have ever done.
Just looking at the increased library wait times, it feels like the publishing industry will do just fine, even though less people are shopping at book stores. Though, if you want to make sure you have career choices when you graduate, you may want to broaden the types of jobs that you're considering. For example, the video game industry is showing crazy growth numbers and I'm sure there will be many jobs in the video game industry, including editors. :)
I wish you the best of luck!
While times are tough, right now there are jobs out there. If you can keep an open mind and understand that your first job won't be your dream job, you will be able to build a career for yourself. Another opportunity is to find ways to volunteer that would connect to your career goals. I am currently working with a non-for-profit to create a social media marketing campaign. This relates back to my passions and helps to make me a more well-rounded fashion buyer which will certainly help my career!
Best of luck!
