Gaining experience is the best way to prove you know how to do the job. Try to land an internship at a newsroom, magazine publisher, or other media company. Learn as much as you can from the professional journalists and qualified individuals around you to best prepare yourself for the job ahead. An internship is a foot in the door that could lead to valuable resources or connections in the future. If you have any experience writing for your high school or college school newspaper, be sure to include that in your resume as it may help you land a coveted internship position.
