When you are looking for a new job, one of the daunting tasks can be determining your salary requirements. You want to ask for enough to make the job worth your while, but you don’t want to ask for so much that you are not considered. So how much money do editors make?
Using the anonymous job site Glassdoor, we found that the average salary for a senior children’s book editor at a Random House is $80,500.
These salaries are self-reported by employees and may include editors at different stages in their careers, at different publishing houses and in different locations around the country where salaries might vary.
