In this long and deep economic crisis, many mass media have been closed and many, many journalists have lost their jobs. Well, the question is: I’m an unemployed journalism, what can I do?
Now, we can see a new opportunities: firstly, self-employment. For instance, offer our knowledge and our experience like journalists, writing newsletters, articles, reports, interviews, and also offer a off-line and on-line marketing and communication plan for private companys and publics institutions like councils and others. In this case, is very important to have a portfolio and have our own website or blog. Secondly, in the last three or four years, the digital age has opened news areas in labor market like community manager, social media manager, blogger inside in companys and public institutions.
Networking and to know languages is key
In one hand, is very important for our professional future to know many languages. Firstly, English, and after others like French, German, Chinese, etc. Because the majority of job offers demands languages like english, french and german. And on the other hand, we have to become authentic public relations for contact with headhunters to know us through of digital platforms like Linked In or in events, that there are in our city every day.
