Advice to student: Get a blog

This was in B&T Weekly, the advertising industry publication. A student who wants to be in journalism, but concerned there may be no jobs.

Choosing to work in these industries (I include marketing in this) is a risky choice. But it promises a great ride.

So, interesting that the advice from one panel member is exactly the same as what I've been saying for over two years now.

Get a blog and write some interesting stuff on it. Find a way to drive traffic to that blog.

In the best of cases, people get discovered. In the worst of cases, a person's bosses or coworkers ridicule or censure them but even then that can be a plus, in a way.

But personally, I've just found it good fun.
