Do you have a more specific goal in regards to your career? What type of journalism would you like to pursue? What medium? What interests you? What got you excited about journalism to begin with?
I was a journalism major for a bit but then I dropped it and went for business. More specifically, I was a photo-journalism major. This is back in the days of dark-rooms (yes, I'm old) when digital photography was a new phenomenon. While I loved journalism and really ate up the whole Edward R. Murrow romanticism of the profession, I couldn't help but notice that I wasn't a very good photographer. I mean, I was alright... but others were wayyyy better than me. I figured that photojournalism would be very competitive and if I wasn't one of the best, it wasn't worth pursuing.
I grew up a student of NPR. To me, that was the gold standard. I loved, and still do love, some of the radio programs they air like Radiolab and This American Life. I suppose it's my time studying journalism as well as my love for NPR and their programming that led me to start making the Hubski podcasts:
But, I'm not sure what employers want out of journalists these days. You are entering a tumultuous field. The landscape is changing so fast that nobody could possibly predict what media will look like 5 years, let alone 10 years from now.
Good luck! Never compromise your integrity!
