can we help?
Journalism influences the way we perceive and think about social and political issues. It is important to remember that although journalism may seem to offer a glamorous career, the reality is quite the opposite. The work can involve irregular and often anti-social hours and some positions may include a high element of risk. Many journalists are concerned with hard news, for example politics, economics, war, terrorism, crime and disasters, or with various aspects of current affairs such as technology and science, business, culture, race, religion, education and sport.
Journalists' tasks range from the presentation of hard news, through the preparation of features giving the background to the news, to the preparation of features which are simply meant to entertain. In the course of a career, and in indeed in the course of one job, journalists may do all these things. Journalism exists in several forms and can be divided simply into written and non-written forms of communication. Predominantly, employers are within the newspaper and magazine industries. However, the growth of the Internet as a viable communication medium has allowed companies to expand their interests online.
Rapid technological change and the impact of globalisation have both affected journalism. In many ways a journalist’s job has become research which can now be carried out at the click of button. A predominant change within journalism is the rise of multimedia groups that own both print and broadcasting interests, and the consequently closer relationship between them. Within journalism there are a multitude of specialisms - sports, finance, medicine, science and fashion to name but a few. However, the industry is characterised by a move away from specialisms and towards a diversified skill set as there are more opportunities for personnel to move between media. There are many skills which are specific to particular branches of journalism, but there is an increasing tendency for journalism courses to teach so called bi-media skills which relate to both branches of work.
