In lecture on Monday, when all of the representatives from the different disciplines at the journalism school came to talk to us, it really got me thinking. What am I supposed to do after graduation?
I am planning on going into strategic communications and possibly public relations. However, I had never really thought about what kind of job I would get after I graduated. I found this article online that offered three things that a person can do with a degree in PR or communications:
It says in the article that I could work for an agency, work for a company directly, or start my own agency and freelance. I think if I had my choice I would like to find a company that I care about. If I could work for a company that I support and use their products, I think my job would be a little more fulfilling than working for an agency that takes whatever comes in the door.
I am very stressed out about getting a job after graduation. I feel like it’s not easy these days. Hopefully my field of work is still as big as it is by the time I graduate so I have somewhere to work`! I cannot wait to start learning how to communicate and write press releases and work with the media.
