In my opinion, the best way to become a journalist is to begin writing every day, as much as possible. Starting a blog or writing for your school or the local newspaper can help you improve your writing skills and gain some experience. This experience will be invaluable as you begin to pursue more opportunities in the field. I will also advise you to consider pursuing a degree in journalism or a related field such as Communication or Literature. While it's not always necessary to have a formal education, a degree can provide you with a deeper understanding of the industry and help you develop the skills necessary to succeed. look for internships and entry-level jobs in journalism, which helps to gain more skills. Building a network of contacts is key in the journalism industry. Try to Attend industry events, and join professional organizations, staying informed and up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies in journalism, and staying active on social media are great ways to stay informed.

Athira, one of my pals, is currently a journalist. One of the nations with the fastest-growing media and news industries is our own. A journalism bachelor's degree is the best spot to start. A master's degree, however, might be something you want to think about if you have some prior work experience and are further along in your job. Candidates can expect to make an average starting salary of INR 1.5 LPA as a Journalist at entry levels and INR 17.8 LPA after 10 to 19 years of expertise. Internship opportunities for students seeking a BJMC/B degree are numerous. I'm an intern in journalism, social media, editing, content marketing, advertising, and many other fields.

There are numerous choices if you want to pursue journalism, including students having the option of majoring in journalism, communications, or taking a media diploma course. However, the most popular education in India to become a journalist is a bachelor's degree in journalism and mass communication (BJMC). They can enrol in a master's programme in journalism or public communication after they graduate. They can also seek a Journalism Diploma or Postgraduate Diploma that prepares them specifically for a career in journalism.
