State of Journalism bodes well for JDM Grads

Your college major checklist:

Take classes in my major...check.

Gain practical experience in Journalism writing for the college newspaper, radio, TV outlets and web site...check.

Research the hyper-evolving industry I'm about to enter to see if my skills match the jobs offered... Whoa! Not sure what awaits you in Journalism and Digital Media?

Here's a great resource: The Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism just published its State of the News Media 2011 Annual Report on American Journalism.

The survey and the project director, Tom Rosenstiel, were featured recently on NPR's Talk of the Nation. Read the transcript and listen to the story.

Last thing on a JDM major's checklist...be prepared!
