The Guardian is hosting an online discussion of “new jobs” in journalism today, taking a look at the new job titles and career paths that have emerged for journalists as a result of new media developments and ongoing changes in the industry and workplace:
Journalism … it used to be so simple. You joined your local newspaper, passed your NCTJ exams and picked one of three paths: reporter, sub-editor or production editor. But these days, it’s a murkier media world. Newly-trained journalists face the leanest job market in years, with more people competing for fewer jobs than ever before. The very future of journalism is threatened. Or so the headlines would have us believe.
Journalism.co.uk will be chipping in on the forum which runs from 1pm-4pm (GMT) today – you can post your questions at this link.
