Still have questions?
The skills I acquired in news proved highly effective once I got out. Writing, interviewing, daily deadlines and video production skills all translate to the corporate world. There are a million opportunities where skills acquired in news will get you hired, from agencies to Fortune 100 companies to freelance. Maria will show you how to make the jump.
