Editorial workers are also badly needed by most of the publishing houses. They need such persons who are aware of publication needs. These personnels should have knowledge of physical education writing and Ed itorial skill- they should be well aware of publication needs. Personnels are also required to the field of sales, for direct sales a number of persons who can move from and approach directly to sale these books are required. The person doing this job should  have a good knowledge of the field of physical education and comparative value of the available books. They should have the idea of market and experience in organising sales and convincing power. Thus, there are a lot of opportunities in every field to step in.
