I’m speaking to a UIC (my alma mater :-)) journalism/media writing class on November 30. I of course majored in political science and only took up media two years ago. In any event… I’ve got some ideas for what to tell them, but I’d like to collect yours as well.
If it matters, this is an undergrad class.
What should they know about the media industry as it looks today, job prospects, how to market oneself, etc? Please leave ideas in the comments, share your own stories of professional successes or failures, etc. Thanks everyone!
