New Journalism Jobs in the Future

For those journalists who are worried about journalism jobs disappearing in the future, have no fear. Amy Webb, founder of the Future Today Institute, says that there will be many new journalism jobs in the newsroom within the next ten years. Jobs such as being a reporter, social media manager, line editor, graphic designer, etc., will be out, but ten new jobs will be in! The new newsroom will be focused on computer-assisted reporting (CAR) instead of the traditional copyediting and fact checking that it is known for right now. Although the jobs will be different from what is known now to current journalists, a new shift in journalism with more jobs is great news for the journalism world! Not everyone will be able to get what he or she wants without the classic jobs anymore, but more jobs is better news for all journalists as a whole. It’s good to know journalism jobs are still reliable and constantly changing. Change is hard, but change is good. Journalists can learn together as we transfer into a new world of journalism careers. It is also important to see that this will bring in more and different types of people into the journalism world. More jobs = more people, and more people = a more well rounded journalism community.
