What I Can Expect For the Future

Meghan Pendrick

I can imagine that technology will play an extremely significant role in my future career. I will be going into editing and proofreading for publications, and so I can imagine most of my work will be done on a computer. I do not exactly know what the software that I will be using while doing my editing, as the software varies, but I can imagine that most of my day will consist of correspondence through email, using spell checks in programs such as Microsoft Word, and brushing up on the latest citation methods such as MLA. The technology I will need might be basic, but I can only think that it has made the process of working as an editor so much easier than it used to be before the Internet was invented.
