Why did I choose this course:
I liked to write.
About my college education:
Learned a lot, especially the technical aspects of writing. How to write/construct properly developed thoughts. The exams were fairly easy.
To succeed in this course, it's important that you have an insatiable thirst for knowledge (or the truth. It is journalism, after all.) and you must have mad research skills.
My current job:
I'm presently the Managing Director of an advertising agency. I'm responsible for the creative and strategic direction of the brands that we handle.
Am I using what I learned in college:
I learned a good deal about time management in college. That proved very useful in my professional and personal life. I also developed my research skills back in college.
Do I recommend studying Bachelor of Arts Major in Journalism:
For those who think that it could be a meal ticket, sorry, you'd be better off taking a different course. Journalism in this country does not pay that much, but it could be quite rewarding. And I'm not just talking about seeing your byline in some broadsheet or magazine. I still believe that Journalism, when practiced right, is a noble profession. Journalism is a very interesting, exciting career!
As for salary, I believe the starting rate these days is around 18k. That's okay for a newbie with no staggering bills to think about. But the rate goes up as your career advances.
Advice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
You have to be sure that this is what you want.
