How journalists can avoid common first-job mistakes

In this week’s career chat, I talked about some of the classic mistakes journalists make in their first jobs. I offered tips on how to avoid these mistakes and explained how you can ultimately measure your success as an employee.

Participants asked questions about finding mentors, learning a new beat, and remaining confident. You can replay the chat below to see what advice I gave them.
