    Hey everybody! My name is Greg and I'm a recently-graduated journalism major from Tennessee (The real UT). This is my first post so I'm looking forward to utilizing this forum and interacting with all of you. If you have any suggestions or tips on how to expand my job search on here or just get more out my time on the site please let me know.

    Hello Greg. You're about to be swamped by posts telling you to get out of the business while you still can. I would advocate instead that you try your hardest to be great. It's not always easy, but journalism can still be a noble, satisfying profession.

    Don't take unpaid work, no matter how good you think the "exposure" is.

    On a serious note, listen to and learn from those who have been in the trenches for a long time; read a lot of good writing and there is no substitute for hard work.
