The Jandoli Institute hosted a live Twitter Chat on Feb. 21 for aspiring and young journalists. Below are responses to a question posed by WBFO reporter Tom Dinki.
I considered it but decided I wanted the experience first. Ultimately, my goal is to get my Master’s to be a professor and terrorize future generations.— Whitney Downard (@WhitneyDownard) February 21, 2020
<p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”Money is why I never even gave serious thought to grad school. Didn’t want more debt and didn’t feel it was worth it given the field doesn’t pay much. But I know people who have gone and are really benefiting from it.— Tom Dinki (@tomdinki) February 21, 2020
I sorta did! For broadcast, you don’t really need it. That’s my opinion though lol —I did want to do law school because I think it’s super helpful for news. But everyone is different- doesn’t hurt ya— Katie Tercek (@KTercek14News) February 21, 2020
I also considered law school! I keep applying for the Law School for Journalists training programs whenever I see them. #JandoliChat— Whitney Downard (@WhitneyDownard) February 21, 2020

Did you consider journalism grad school?
Is journalism dead?
How do you stay positive?
What happens when your job takes you to another state?
Aside from classes, what did you do during college to learn journalism?
How did you adjust from college to the workforce?
What’s the most fun you’ve had as a journalist?
