It seems nobody is hiring, but that doesn’t mean there’s no hope. This year it’s harder than ever in terms of finding employment so graduates have to lower their expectation of getting even one job offer and keep their chins up.
On Twitter today, a fellow journalism student asked what should a trainee journalist do right now? The answer is probably just to keep working hard, having initiative and keep writing.
One editorial executive said keeping a strong online presence is a good way of getting noticed. A blog is not only a good way of keeping motivated to write, but also a way to get stories published.
Whereas in a newsroom, a reporter has to bypass editors to give their story the go-ahead, on the internet, what the writer says goes. That is freedom of speech.
