How to tell when it's time to get out of journalism

In this week's career chat, we talked about how to decide whether it's time to get out of journalism. This is not a simple yes-or-no question, so we addressed its complexities and what they mean. We also asked chat participants about their goals and how/whether journalism fits into them, and talked about the skills that journalists can transfer to other jobs.

As I told chat participants, "Treat each new job as a bridge to the one after it, and not as your final destination."
