University Of Ottawa - This degree gives you an opportunity to apply your journalistic skills to the of key social issues and, as such, to offer the public more insightful and a more powerful report. Occupation Possess I think some interest you should have if you wanna become a journalist should be writing. I think writing is important because that's one of the most common things you have to do. Another thing that I think would be a good interest, is if you like researching and learning new things all the time. Because if you were to be a journalist, you would have to do a lot of information on where your going or what your studying or talking about. Advantages - Traveling to different places - Meeting different/new kinds of people - Learning new things - New skills - Being able to provide news to people Disadvantages: - Publishing wrong information - Not everyone will like you - Public might criticize you - Can get in trouble with the law Summary: The reason why I chose this occupation is because I think that this job is suitable for me. Growing up I have wanted to be a journalist and learn and find out new things that are going on in this world. I love to write, discover and learn new things everyday, and I think becoming a journalist is a good job for me.

Journalism to be is a positive career because you are able to find information and share it with the world. Not only that but at the same time you are learning new things about countries, your learning new skills and more information about other people from famous to interesting, including yourself.

One thing that I have learned about this occupation is the salary that you make is not a lot of money. I thought that it's would be a greater amount. But as you find interesting stories and once you have been in that career for long amounts of time you get paid more which is an excellent thing.

Another thing that I have learned from this occupation is that there are quiet a few disadvantages. Most of them has to do with the public eye. If you publish wrong information, or if you do something that some people don't like, you can get the wrong attention from the public. I think that even that does happen you know not to do it again, and you can always overcome of what people think of you. I think that in order to do well in this job you have to have confidence in what your doing, keep you head up high and keep working hard. If you keep doing that I think you will have a very successful career. 6 credits from:
