Knowing what a journalist does and what opportunities are available to graduates in this field is necessary to anyone interested in a journalism career. This reprint discusses five major categories of journalism careers: writing and editing the news for print and electronic media, commercial and professional writing, advertising, public relations, and broadcast journalism. Other areas described include photojournalism, teaching, and freelance writing. General information is provided about educational requirements, job hunting, advancement, pay, hours, working conditions, and opportunities for women and minorities. A checklist of personal characteristics that have been attributed to good journalists and a list of pamphlets and booklets about journalism and related jobs complete the discussion. (KS)
