Without much preamble, I highly recommend you enter Publish2’s “Are you the future of journalism?” contest, wherein you can WIN A JOB.
Considering how many journalists lost their jobs today, and how many likely will lose their jobs tomorrow, and how many have lost their jobs this year, I’m betting there’s a pretty big pool of talent out there.
So before you start looking for a gig in public relations, please consider the simple idea that you need not work for a newspaper to call yourself a journalist.
This isn’t about who has the thickest resume: You can submit your entry as a video, slide show, or plain text i that’s what you’re into.
(I’d probably go with a fast-paced screencast-style presentation, but that’s just me.)
More details about the contest and the opportunity in Scott Karp’s blog post about it.
