- For many that graduated college years ago, the fear that embraced them as the date approached is, if lucky, a distant memory.But, as you know, there is a new wave of journalists about to join our industry… so, I’m collecting stories – positive and negative – from journalists when starting out.NOTE: These are "professional" gigs, post graduation... "real world" jobs.
