    1. You need to info readers on how remuneration has improved and how this is a skill and not just a job.
      What are carrier prospects here?

  1. Hi..
    Nice to see this article of yours because its very much relevant to my future plan. I am currently in my last year of PhD(cell biology/protein trafficking) and further I would be doing post doc too. But when I think about myself down the line, I feel I want to do editing because as you said I love reading, writing also discussing and communicating. I somehow feel I can take up this as my career but I am not sure how good I am at this. could you tell me how do I test myself for the same? I have not done any journalism or related course.
    I would be glad if you could suggest me something.

  2. I’m trying to compile some samples and create a portfolio for job applications. I don’t currently work in science editing/writing but my degree is in biology and chemistry and I am a bit unenthused about continuing lab work. What is the best way to compose some samples? What do people want to see? Should I find some interesting scientific articles and summarize/re-write for a general audience? Should I do multimedia projects? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
