‘The journalist enjoys good standing in his community. He is even likely to be held in awe.’

That’s what the author of “Your Career in Journalism” wrote in 1965. M.L. Stein said the journalist “has prestige and influence that most persons can never hope to attain” and that “if you are a college graduate in journalism, you may land a job before you even leave the campus.” || HOW TO GET HIRED: “By far the best idea is to go directly to a newspaper and ask the city editor for a job.”
