A guide to new jobs in newsrooms

Just what does a growth editor do? There are a lot of new titles in newsrooms, and for both long-time newsroom staff and newcomers, it is sometimes difficult to sort them out and understand how they evolve.

Sarah Marshall, head of audience growth at Vogue International, answers a lot of these questions. In the course she teaches for Interactive Journalism MA students at City University in London, she covers:

  • What does a social media editor do?
  • What is audience development?
  • What is a growth editor?
  • How have these roles changed within the past year?
  • What are news publishers looking for in entry level social journalism graduates?

Marshall has kindly posted her notes from her first lesson. It’s a good overview from a long-time practitioner who knows the subject better than most.
