Business or Personal: Be the ultimate threat
Just recently, I wrapped up two successful years at University of Miami’s School of Communication with a strong focus in print journalism. Throughout my masters program, my professors and advisers heavily advocated that their students should dabble in almost every aspect that the industry has to offer; i.e. social media writing, public relations writing, advertorial writing, etc .
I came into my program focused on writing and editing for newspapers and magazines. UMSOC made it mandatory for students to explore all facets like: video editing, broadcast journalism, Web design, camera usage and statistics. Not all of which are ideal for someone who wants to focus on the craft of writing.
It’s better to be a jack-of-all-trades than producing a prospect employee that solely focuses on one component of the industry. Without a doubt, the UMSOC and employers everywhere emphatically stand by this ideology.
