“It might be crazy, but I’m optimistic”

It’s not so bad, in fact it’s an exciting time to be entering journalism, according to a few Columbia journalism school grads who spoke to The Village Voice.

The article, “You Just Graduated From Journalism School. What Were You Thinking?” begins:

“…conventional wisdom has it that planning for a future in journalism makes as much sense as signing up for a career as a Pontiac dealer.

“That’s not how members of the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism’s just-graduated class of 2009 see it, though. Despite the tough times, they are excited and hopeful that their freshly minted degrees will help prepare them for the news business’s rebirth.”
