A dynamic profession

An insight into journalism, a dynamic profession with a good scope and openings in print and electronic media; and now with new avenues online, in the field of mass communication. People with a flair for writing can opt for this interesting career.

People generally feel that journalism is only all about writing. Yes it is. But it is much more, about reading, observing and most importantly, the ability to express one’s thoughts on varied subjects and topics.

Journalism is a dynamic profession and a challenging career. Journalism is for people who are ready to observe, listen and explore various opportunities without the constraints of gender, cultural upbringing, and are ready to do things out of the box to collect their story.

The main aim of journalism is to collect information and present it to the world. Journalism also includes investigating, analysing and reporting. It is also reporting local as well as world events, trends, current affairs. But today most of them just report without verifying the authenticity and other details of the story. In the seventies, such inaccurate writing, to attack someone or celebrities or promote somebody or celebrities was known as yellow journalism. And this phrase was very commonly used then.

It is rightly said – Pen is mightier than the sword. Many young people are attracted to journalism. They are keen to take it up as a career and wish to excel and make a name for themselves. Everyday there are several events happening across the world – political, cultural, religious, crime and natural disaster. We come to know about these events and incidents sitting at home through newspapers, television or online through the internet. This is possible through communication, providing information to a large number of people at the same time. And this is done by journalists around the world.

To be a good journalist, one has to be have a command over language, confidence in oneself, enthusiasm, patience, perseverance and a natural ability to differentiate between fact and fiction, while putting the story together, adhering to deadlines, must be a team man, open and sensitive to different views, lifestyles, in-depth knowledge about various fields such as politics, culture, tradition, social and current affairs. Journalists also help in shaping public opinion about a person or a subject, so they should be honest and stick to the facts.

Today, there is plenty of scope and openings for journalists. As you know media is divided into print and electronic media. Everything in print comes under print media, which includes newspapers, magazines, journals, tabloids and books. Electronic media covers radio, television, cable, TV channels and with internet, you get instant news on mobiles, tablets and computers.
