I love journalism. I can't stop thinking about quitting it.
Can’t Bernie throw y’all a bone? It’s worth the investment for continuing his legacy.
Hope there are enough paid subscribers here to help out. I’ll chip in.
Y'all should start a Patreon.
I studied media/journalism and PR during undergrad. I went the PR route because I was told “that’s where the money is”. 6+ Years Into PR, I established myself financially and professionally, but I absolutely hated the industry. I wanted so badly to return to journalism and narrate the stories that were underreported but mattered. After reading this, I feel even more at a loss. Is it worth pursuing this career path that sounds so unstable?
This was a very good, albeit painful read, I think across a lot of industries a lot of workers are asking similar questions, how can we find that stability, but without burning ourselves out or compromising who we are.
