also for those who use a parasonic lx-5 how would you rate your experience thinking about picking one up for waywts and miscellaneous photographs

No experience with them, but the LX7 has dropped to $300 a couple times in the past couple weeks. If the best price on LX5 is still $250, might as well wait for a deal on the LX7

I had an LX-5... was a great little camera. Sold it for about $250 a few months ago.

IME most don't really give a fuck about writing skills, unless you have a hard science / math / accounting background to with those writing skills. Plus finding people with reasonably good writing skills isn't that difficult... lots of unemployed people with english, poli sci, law, etc. backgrounds.

My advice: market yourself as a "brand journalist." It sounds goofy, but the hot new trend every marketer is salivating over right now is the idea of brands publishing content, so that job title actually exists. My guess is you'll be way safer in a marketing/pr/digital/whatever agency or an in-house department than an actual journalistic publication. Then again, I have friends who are doing pretty well at places like Reuters and USA Today, so conventional journalism careers still have an inkling of promise.

Yes, I actually am studying at Missouri to get my journo degree. The consensus there is that we all have no prospects but that is mostly tongue-in-cheek.

Well I've got a pretty wide array of technical experience that I didn't learn in school, so for the jobs I've looked at it might be more that I had what they were looking for, with the addition of writing skills (which most tech people don't have).

 

Anyway, the journalism will be useful in almost any job; he'll be fine outside of the field.

After reading all the law school posts, I started working on a long, thoughtful reply. But instead of posting that, I am just going to repost what I said about the matter about a year ago.

with few exceptions,

THERE IS NO WORK FOR ENTRY LEVEL LAWYERS
THERE IS NO WORK FOR ENTRY LEVEL LAWYERS
THERE IS NO WORK FOR ENTRY LEVEL LAWYERS
THERE IS NO WORK FOR ENTRY LEVEL LAWYERS
THERE IS NO WORK FOR ENTRY LEVEL LAWYERS

Do something else unless your soul compels you to be a lawyer.

You haven't seen any uptick in the number of job ops for grads? The statistics must have shifted from like '08 to now, I mean c'mon...

I agree with this 100%. I'm about two years out and still getting practically nowhere because there aren't any entry level jobs, especially for my area (transactional) everything is for 3-5yrs exp +.
Reedo, if you really want to go to law school, wait a few years. You'll have more time to think about it, and more importantly you'll get some work experience in the meantime.

No, it's about as shitty as 4 years ago. If by improved you mean things have gone from a 1/10 to a 1.5/10, then yes things have "improved."
What jobs are coming available are mostly laterals... the only people getting jobs are people that already have them.

Edit: IIRC, the 2011 class had the worst employment statistics since they've been keeping employment info for law grads. 2010 was the second worst.

I highly suggest you stay off the law school track and instead gear your skillset towards hunting ravenous mutants, scavenging precious fuel and medicine, detecting signs of radiation poisoning, and being okay with cooking and consuming the flesh of your fellow man, as all these will all be highly sought-after skills in the anticipated post-apocalyptic deathplanet market.

 

Also these screeching audio advertisements need to stop

Seriously. It's always the same one too (at least for me), the Philadelphia brownie one.

But I don't think Reedo has a science/engineering degree.

I'm just a 3L, but I'd say about 50% of my friends at my T14 have biglaw jobs lined up after graduation. On the other hand, I think people only last 3 years on average in a big firm before getting pushed out. In other words, even the best result coming out of law school leads to a job you'll probably just get fired from.
post #68445 of 103472
my sister went to law school at what i'm guessing is a pretty poorly ranked school (definitely not T14) and had a hell of a time finding a job. had to work at a position at the courthouse basically doing stuff that didn't even require a law degree for a few years before she got a job at a small firm doing dcfs defense work. she's worked her ass off and is making decent money, but she lives/works in the middle of nowhere and the cost of living in ct is high as hell.

she says she wished she stayed a bartender as she made more money (allegedly) doing that.
