A friend of mine just got seriously excited about being asked to be an unpaid researcher for a blog. She has her B.S. in Journalism.
In J school, we were all primed and greased and told that if we stuck with the program we would all have jobs at typewriters smoking cigars and saying ‘just the facts, ma’am.’ It’s such a sick, sad joke. But like any good journalists we girt our teeth and plow on through that concrete, steel, wood, glass and invisible ceiling.
Yes, she’s right, it’s a foot in the proverbial door. But really!?
…and so the job hunt continues.
