You can be a journalist without a job at a mainstream news organization

That headline seems obvious, no?

Then why is it that when journalists see layoffs, buyouts, and newspaper companies in trouble, they sigh and say “Should I stop wasting my time and start applying to advertising agencies?

Really?

“You can be a journalist without a job at a mainstream news organization”, Ryan Sholin

If you have the skills, people will call

Yes, it is a tough time for journalism graduates — or anyone looking for a journalism job — but there are jobs available for people with desirable skills.

Recent journalism graduate Kyle Hansen just accepted a job at the Las Vegas Sun. More noteworthy, is that in this terrible time for journalism companies and the economy, he had interviews in five different states with newspapers. Five different states.

What skills does Hansen have that most recent journalism graduates don’t? Well, for starters, he blogs. It doesn’t have to be the best or most popular blog, but having a blog shows potential employers that Hansen is willing to try out new tools and that he has an understanding of the power of blogging.

O que é que sabem fazer? A sério. Quais são as vossas competências? Porque é  que querem ser jornalistas (ou outra coisa qualquer) ? Eu ando a fazer estas questões a mim mesmo há já algum tempo, e há umas que vão tendo respostas mais concretas. Mas o que vejo é que muita gente não sabe que jornalismo é acima de tudo uma actividade. Não se diz que se gosta de correr, corre-se e pronto. Os profissionais estão cada vez mais por conta própria, e isso não é necessariamente mau. Façam um bom trabalho e mostrem-no. Com sorte, alguém há-de reparar.

What do you know to do? Really. What are your skills? Why do you want to be a journalist  (or anything else)? I’ve been asking myself these same questions for quite some time now, and there are a few which are getting some concrete answers. But what i’m watching is that there’s a whole lot of people that doesn’t know that journalism is an activity. You can’t say  you like to run, you just run. Professionals are more and more on their own, and that may not be a bad thing. Do the best work you can and show it. With luck, someone will notice.

Every single one of my interviews was a direct result of my experience blogging or editing video. Of course, another key is who you know. Two of the three places I was considering were places that I knew people working there. One of the others was a place that someone I knew recommended.

O que é preciso para arranjar emprego como jornalista? | What does it take to get a job as a journalist?

Uma boa forma de se verificar a saúde e cultura empresarial de um país é através das páginas dos classificados.Especialmente quando nos debruçamos  sobre algumas áreas específicas. Como aqui falamos de jornalismo, já podem adivinhar o que vem a seguir.

A profissão de jornalista tem sido das que mais alterações sofreu nos últimos anos a nível de capacidades dos profissionais. Se as competências básicas se mantém inalteradas e omnipresentes na profissão, a sua aplicação tem mudado imenso: a tecnologia evoluiu e forçou a evolução da construção de conteúdos informativos. Mas o trabalho continua a ser responder às questões que aprendemos logo na primeira aula de jornalismo: o quê, quem, onde, como, quando e porquê.

Por isso este post vai comparar os anúncios que a Mindy MacAdams viu para jornalistas nos Estados Unidos e outros que eu escolhi de um popular site de empregos na área de comunicação em Portugal. O objectivo é comparar as competências exigidas aos jornalistas  e as condições oferecidas nestas duas realidades, e aferir das necessidades das empresas de comunicação portuguesas. Para juntar à festa, um inquérito que mostra quais são as capacidades exigidas aos jornalistas online da Carolina do Norte. Os resultados são muito interessantes. Como isto vai ocupar algum espaço,  saltem para a parte que interessa aqui.

A good way to check the business culture and health of a country is by reading the classified ads. Especially in some specific jobs. Since the main subject around here is journalism, you might guess what is coming next.

Journalism as a profession  has suffered many changes in the recent years, regarding required abilities. If the basic competences are unchanged and ever present in the job, it’s application has changed greatly: the technology evolved and forced the evolution in the construction of news contents. But the job is still answering to the questions that we learned in our very first journalism class: what, who, where, how, when, why.

So this post will compare the ads for journalists that Mindy MacAdams saw for positions in US newspapers, and a few that i chose from a popular portuguese media jobs website. The goal is to compare  the skills a journalist must have and the conditions offered in these two realities, and assess the needs of the news companies in Portugal. To make it evem more interesting, there’s a survey that shows which are the most required skills preferred for online journalists in North Carolina. The results are quite interesting. Since this will take some room, jump to what matters here.
