Where’s the Field?

For the life of me, I just don’t understand why it’s so hard to break into the field of journalism. Why is it so hard to find a job with a local newspaper or a magazine you have a sincere interest in?

Am I doing something wrong? Do I need a M.A.?

I graduated college in 2003, that’s almost twenty years ago, and I still haven’t found a career job in journalism.

I’ve been forced to work on my writing when I have the time and pursue my passions on the side, but I don’t want to do that anymore.

I have a B.A. specialized in communication/journalism, and I’ve authored two books now. I don’t want to keep changing jobs, but I do because I’m forced to pursue work in fields that aren’t in alignment with my personal abilities and educational training.

It’s frustrating.
