Superman’s alter ego made a good point, which is relevant in today’s evolving media industry. Now, more than ever, journalists are expected to have a broad understanding of different media. For most of my journalism career, my professional development was mainly focused on writing and reporting.
As many professionals do, regardless of occupation, I receive my share of invitations to speak at school career days. And let me tell you, I go out of my way to accept every offer. Due to the hectic pace of our job and meeting deadlines, I know the opportunities we have to educate people, of all ages, about our work are few.
