Well, most people study journalism, they get their degree, but with the low demand of jobs and high amount of journalists how does one get published?
First you need to get as much as you can before you graduate school. Secondly, internships are not solely about the experience, but it is also about who you know. Internships are a great way to build your network and learn people in the industry. It’s also a great way to start writing and showcase your work to someone in the industry.
Build your portfolio! This is true in journalism, and in public relations. People want to see tangible skills, not just a resume. The best way to do this is by having a social media presence, writing for your local paper, or writing for the school paper.
Apply! Fill out applications for your local paper and send out your resume. The best way to try to get a job in journalism is to get out there and stand out. This is when building a strong resume comes in handy.
