Seeking your comments for journalism book

I’m under contract with a popular career guide publisher to write a book on how to become a journalist in the Digital Age.

The book is for students and entry-level job seekers. It focuses on what skills, education, training, experience, etc. will be necessary to land a good job and be a successful journalist in the coming 5-10 years. The release date is this spring.

I want to hear from working journalists, media company recruiters and career services staff on stuff like: What types of jobs are out there? What types of jobs have been scaled back? What sort of jobs will there be in the future? Realistically, what kinds of jobs can someone get right out of college? What skills do young journalists need and where can they get training? What can young journalists do to make themselves standout among other interns or staff? Do you have one piece of advice that new journalists shouldn’t live without?

Please e-mail your response to book[at]

I have always believed that good journalism does not come from a journalism degree. It comes from a passion for news and reality. People need to realise that to make it big in journalism, they need to have it in them.
