In response to…”How Useful is Your Journalism/PR Degree?”
Hmmm, this is definitely not the first time I have heard that journalism is a useless degree. Funny, but I really enjoy a challenge. I am currently a Junior pursuing journalism, and while I know plenty of people who are unemployed with a degree in Communications, I also believe it is a reflection of the type of personality they are. Do you have to work for a job? Sure! It’s not going to be simply waiting for you like a job for say, a nurse, might be, but they do exist. It just takes a little bit more creativity, a little more aggressiveness, and I don’t think we should be scared of something that isn’t gleaming in gold and guaranteed. Crafting your words will never be put out of business. This is simply a call to step up our journalism game.
