It seems everyone and their dog has something to say about the journalism industry these days.
With the fundamentally game-changing arrival of the Internet, one especially popular diatribe we tend to hear is that journalism has been sealed in its plastic blue coffin and tossed on death’s doorstep.
Who needs “professionals” telling us what is and what is not when the whole world is engaged in the ceaseless and overwhelming exchange of information online?
It is for this same reason that I would argue good journalism is perhaps more important now than ever before.
In the chaotic sea that is the information age, clear and accurate reporting and thoughtful insight on a trusted platform are absolutely essential.
Traditional media, as it always has, shapes a generation’s conversation. Journalism is shifting, not dying. And you have the opportunity to be part of that shift, an opportunity to help direct the discussion.
In a nutshell, the platforms have changed, but the power of the pen has not.
All of this to say that you may have noticed the Brunswickan is hiring. You also may have noticed you’d make an excellent member of the team for the 2015/2016 school year.
Join our team. Join the conversation where it matters most.
Tess Allen is the Editor-in-Chief of the Brunswickan. For now.
