I am nowhere near an award-winning journalist, but I’ve come a long way from the girl whose college professor said word-for-word “I would never hire you.”
Granted, I skipped a lot of class and half-assed my homework assignments… But come on, I was 18. Give me a break.
Now, I’m writing for Locale Magazine and get all the perks of a journalist like free concert tickets, dinners, and hotel rooms in exchange for an article reviewing the product, band, or location. Once you establish a name for yourself in the writing world, businesses will gladly treat you like royalty because they understand the weight of your opinion.
