Asked by Wiki User

It all depends on who you are working for, where you work, and where you got your degree. If you want to succeed at this job, you will need to not only get a good education and degree, but will need many contacts and look for local internships you can grab. This and more will help you. But, starting out, never be disappointed in how much you are making or how hard your working. This is what needs to happen to really prove yourself. You could make anywhere from 10,000 dollars a year to millions if you really work hard.

How can a teen be a journalist?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

As a teen, there are many opportunities that you can take advantage of to become a journalist. The first one that came to mind was submitting "I-Reports" to major news networks like CNN. You can take pictures of events in your local area to be shared on-air to millions of viewers. Another idea is to contact your local newspaper or tv station to inquire if they need a summer teen reporter. You can also submit articles to a wide variety of magazines to be considered for publication. Another popular outlet for the latest news and topics of interest is writing for a blog. If you maintain a blog, not only you will get lots of writing experience but you will also be exposed to many topics and issues of interest to your readers.

Do you need a degree to be a journalist?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

To be a journalist there are a number of avenues you can try. If just finishing school, the best thing you can do is start a Communication/Writing degree. Whether this be at university or TAFE - the choice is yours. Many people enter the world of journalism later on in life, after having life experience and something of interest (a hobby) to write about. They work on niche magazines or newspapers that are about their interest. But if you're wanting to work in newspapers, the best way about it is to get some work experience. Do some work for nothing. Get to know people in the industry and find a person you can call a `mentor'. That way they can teach you everything you need to know over a period of time. They're someone you can refer back to and ask advice and guidance. From here, get some of your stories published and continue chipping away. If you ask a newspaper/media business for a job and they say there's nothing going at the moment, get in touch with them once a month. Times are tough at the moment, but there are always movements and you just never know. If you see them often enough, when a position does come available, hopefully they'll think of you first...

What are the job advancements opportunities for dentistry?

Asked by Wiki User

The job outlook for dentists in the USA where I live is strong -- even when the economy is slowing down. Similar to the shortage seen in nursing, the dental profession does not have enough dentists entering the field. Many baby-boomer dentists are also retiring, and there's a yearly deficit of about one thousand dentist in the US. Decrease in supply equals an increase in demand. Also, with things slowing down in the economy, many dentists pick up part time work at several offices to keep their income at the level that they need.

Is journalism a profession or a craft?

Asked by Wiki User

Journalism as a craft would focus only on the writing aspect because the craft is a skillful way of doing something with your hands. Craft can also be seen as an art. In other words, journalism cannot be classified as a craft because it is broader in a way that it is not only about writing articles.

How many hours does a journalist work a week?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Newspaper journalist : You will need to be flexible about your working hours. You should be on the internet at all times. You will need a smart phone to be perusing other publications authors constantly to fill your own column for deadline. Following up stories, responding to breaking news with an uneducated opinion is always a must, and meeting deadlines can mean plagiarizing for long, irregular hours, including evenings, weekends and public holidays. Broadcast journalist : Your working week can be long and may involve unsocial hours and shifts. You should be flexible and may need to work overtime to meet deadlines or cover a breaking story. Magazine journalist : You would need to be flexible about your working hours. Although the standard day is usually 9am to 6pm, you may need to work longer, irregular hours to meet deadlines. You may spend some of your time traveling to follow up stories. This could involve overnight stays at the home of an interpreter during overseas travel. Depending on the type of magazine you may or may not have an opportunity to fish and drink.

How much money does a video game journalist earn?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Being a professional video game tester is obviously great. You get to play the newest video games and you get paid to do so. Honestly, what more could any gamer ask for? However, the big questions is: how much does a video game tester get paid? After all, if the pay isn't any good, why would a person continue in that line of work?

The average video game tester salary can range from 15-20 thousand dollars per year all the way up to 80-100+ thousand per year. How much a game tester makes is directly related to how many jobs he gets as well as what developers hire him. However, since most game testers work on a job by job basis and not on a contractual salary, let's break down the yearly figure into an hourly and a weekly figure.

Game testers are typically paid $8-20 per hour, depending on their level of experience. For this example, let's take the middle ground and go with $15 per hour for a mid-level tester. Game testers tend to put in a lot of hours each week (40 to 50+), which is usually due to a developer's inflexible deadlines. With that being said, let's say the tester works the typically minimum (40 hours) and is paid the aforementioned $15 per hour of testing work. 40 hours x $15 is a weekly paycheck of $600 dollars, assuming the tester were to work that many hours each week. Sounds like a nice paycheck, right? You bet it does, and most gamers would be thrilled to cash a check like that every week.

The big downside to being a video game tester, as mentioned above, is that your career progresses on a per job basis. You won't get a testing job every month, nor will you get one every week. As a matter of fact, it is fairly common to have a long wait in between many of your testing jobs. So, unless you are at the top of your game and tons of game developers know of you, be prepared to wait in line like all the rest. Fortunately for you though, there is a way to increase the amount of job openings that are available to you, and it's known as networking.
Average annual salary of $25,000 / £15,000 / E17,000.
