Question 179: Can I teach myself to be an editor on my Mac or do I need more skills?

This is more of a technical question than a career coaching question, but I'll give you a career coaching answer. You can teach yourself to be an editor on a Mac, you can watch their tutorials, you can even go into the Mac store (one of my favorite places on earth). The question is: What is your long term goal as an editor? Do you want to work in the entertainment industry at the Union Level? Until I know where you want to be, I can only advise you to seek out mentors who are working editors and ask them what skills you need, what equipment you need to know how to use, and anything else that pertains to the the type of work that you want to do.
