Based on what I’ve found out this won’t be such an easy <br />career to break into and that I’m going to have to work my way from the bottom to the top. <br />It’s a competitive field that doesn’t hold many positions for employers. This motivates me to <br />make sure I’m afforded the best education and training experience so that my competition <br />doesn’t stand a chance. Because of my work ethic and personality I’m determined that I’ll be <br />successful at this profession and other ones as well. I’d rather have a career that will keep me <br />on my toes instead of having a boring job that I don’t enjoy at all. This occupation allows you to <br />travel around to different places in the world to work on stories, documentaries, special news <br />cast, and etc. And also meet up influential leaders in the process. Because of the vast genre of <br />jobs that are categorized in this field of study the possibilities are endless. This allows me to <br />gain additional skills relating to Journalism. Over the years I would like to dabble my hands in <br />careers such as a reporter, manager, columnists, and etc.<br />Part H:<br />BLS, . (2008, April 29). Burea of labor statistics.
