Mass Communications is a diverse career, therefore, I plan to work in almost every arena that demands for specialists in communications. As I pursue my B.A degree of undergraduate studies in Mass Communications from Claflin University, I try to learn the logistics of both business and marketing fields. Business and Communications both complement my personality and I am interested in contributing my positive characteristics to my future career endeavors. This will also expanded my network with journalism.
I posses the skills that market businesses effectively via publication and word of mouth. I am open to learning new tasks and other innovative methods that will contribute increasing sales for a business. As a Mass Communications major, I am learning how to write for different markets and demographics, persuading them to continue to consume of a product or service. This learning style is best for me because I am able to broadcast between different outlets. I have learned how not to subject marketing, advertising and other tactics to only print, radio and television while writing for a particular subject.
Convergent journalism is on the rise and is continually advancing along with technology. In order for one to keep up with the swift transitions, they must learn how to operate what ever is being transitioned. Print is slowly but surely diminishing away and being transitioned into convergent print on the internet. Because of this noticeable transition, my writings are more descriptive, vibrant, and directly to the main point. Radio on the internet is also more popular than ever. Podcasts, which are blogs read aloud, are similar to the primary purpose of radio. I am an avid blogger and podcast recorder, allowing me to personalize a story at any given time. My favorite subjects to blog and record podcasts about are about politics, school affairs and other miscellaneous events.
I would like to record podcasts and write blogs for different businesses and organizations to add to their arsenal of mediums of reaching to prospect supporters and customers. Diversity in Mass Communications is the key to a successful mission. Whether one is specializing in public relations, creating the jingle, or taking a mere picture, they are all important and needed. Though I am not a photojournalists, I am able to capture the moment in a photo that will send messages to others that the subject is definite and defined. Digital and convergent media are both essential toa business.
My primary focus is to perfect my craft and future profession as a convergent journalist. I am willing to use my talents and efforts in the industry to climb the ladder of success. In terms of my degree, I am willing to manipulate it to benefit me, cooperate and non-profit companies, and society. While I am adjusting to the competitive industry of journalism, I am sure that I will be prepared and confident to assist in empowering any company that is in need of an affective, young journalists.
