How Do I Survive in Journalism? (podcast)

As our spring photojournalism workshop drew to a close, we put some of our editors around the table and asked them the questions every student wanted asked – what’s next? What do I need to know to get a job? Where are those jobs? What do I do to survive?

Walt Stricklin, Director of Photography at the Birmingham News, Minla Shields, the former Senior Editor for Planning at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and Mike Haskey, Chief Photographer at the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, tackle those questions.

  1. Great podcast! I am about to finish my photojournalism major and decided to take on a second major (Computer Information Systems). In a way I am scared of facing the job industry and ask myself “What will I do to survive? and Where are those jobs?” That is why I am taking the second major, it is a second passion of mine but photojournalism is my main one. In a way, I feel like I am taking this second major as a way to survive but I do not want to continue with that major if in the end I do get a photojournalism career and that second major was a waste of time. I guess I feel lost and after listening to this podcast I think I know what to do next…
