Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

Some may think that you can go untrained into fishing. The best advice I would give people considering fishing as a profession is to get training. Fishing is an all encompassing career - when you need to go fishing, the rest of your life goes on hold unfortunately. It is very unpredictabe because you could be fishing non stop for three weeks and tied up for two.

Enterprising?
Enterprising
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Career Progression header image

Online journalism jobs are becoming increasingly important and suitable for graduates with a degree in media and journalism who want to control their own work hours or work from home. Television and radio stations are located all over the country. All need effective journalists to fill key news preparation and on air positions.

Graduates with such a degree may have an advantage over other job candidates who lack a comparable degree. In recent years, traditional media sources such as print, radio and television have been facing increasingly stiff competition from the Internet, impacting media professionals/journalists and journalist salaries alike. Although some graduates go straight to work with a national station or newspaper, many work in consumer or trade magazines, local press and radio or websites. Some graduates work freelance, while others move into related areas such as PR, marketing, multimedia, IT and general business.
