  1. As a young journalist, I think this video underestimates the knowledge of college journalists. At least at my school, the University of Oregon, we are constantly reminded of the difficulty of the field we are about to enter. I am sure most of my fellow students are aware of this as well. Stories and articles get killed from college newspapers all the time, and you can’t even get in to some of the upper level classes without experience at an internship or campus publication.

    The video was funny (although a little rudimentary- technologically speaking), but I think it was a little insulting to us younger journalists who are even more aware of the realities of the journalism field in today’s changing job market.

  2. You must be at a great school. When I went to journalism school as an undergrad, and even as a graduate student at Columbia (funny, I know), a lot people did have those expectations only to be hit on the head right before graduation.

  3. It’s interesting how this video highlights what many high schoolers probably think. I know that a lot of schools make their students fully aware of what is going to happen, that the industry isn’t going to give you a job right away or that you’re going to have to pay your dues. I was reminded of this in college and in graduate school, fully aware that it was going to be difficult to get into the industry.

  4. Hello, Congratulations on being on the front page! It’s best to think ahead from as early as possible when preparing these tactics of course– it can be a real nightmare to pick apart a model and add support structures or cut it apart.

  6. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been
    conducting a little homework on this. And he actually bought me breakfast due to
    the fact that I discovered it for him… lol. So allow me to reword
    this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for
    spending some time to discuss this matter here on your blog.

  7. I don’t even know the way I ended up right here, however I assumed this publish used to be good. I don’t recognize who you’re however definitely you’re going to a well-known blogger should you are not already. Cheers!|
