Career –Graduation is taking place in the country. Many universities are awarding graduands various Degree certificates after preparing them to start their professional lives in the fields.
You could be among those who were lucky to be awarded with a Journalism and Mass Communication degree from your university and now wondering what you will be doing with it since many similar papers are already out here and still jobless.
Out there, the job market is chocking with so many job seekers. The terrain will not be so smooth for you either. It is pretty rough and unforgiving.
And in order to help ease your transition into real-world of employment and definitely beyond, we’ve put together this list of possible options for those who went through J-school and now need something else to keep them busy.
If you don’t see the category that well fits your interest, don’t fret. There are lots of options for you. The list is simply a starting point.
For example, if you are good at writing but not interested in reporting, why not consider becoming a copywriter? Or, if editing is more your style, perhaps you should consider becoming an editor. You choose what you want to become.
The years I have worked in the journalism industry, I noticed jobs are plenty in media houses but the pay is disheartening. Many media houses will absorb you very fast but they will not be ready to pay you that fast.
In journalism profession, one could become a broadcast journalist where you will be spending a lot of your day infront of cameras and recorders. Tv and radio stations will be ready to hire your services.
Secondly, you could also become a news reporter in the fields. Chances are high that you will start from here before moving up the ladder. Many news anchors started here. It is all about gathering news from the field and bringing them in the newsroom.
Thirdly, why not decide to be an online or digital journalist. Many traditional media houses are turning digital and ready to take talented brains with them. Love this area and you won’t go dry.
You could also start your own digital platform like news or niche blog, Youtube channels etc and make a living from their revenues. The array of income avenues are many but you will have to be patient. No short cut here.
Last but not least, you can as well choose to become a book writer and start writing books for commercial purposes.
In a nutshell, opportunities in journalism are so many and it is upon you to choose which one is best suitable for you. It goes without mentioning corporate journalism where you are hired as a communication officer in any firm as well as government. You could also become an independent communication consultant.
