Miki Johnson

Miki Johnson was a Journalist

Mikis rating: A pleasant 4/5

I went to journalism school and quickly realized I was more interested in magazines than newspapers or broadcast. I was lucky enough to get a job out of school at a magazine focused on photography, which I loved. It gave me the opportunity to learn a ton, talk to all the top people in the field, become friends with many of them, and get a high-level view of the whole industry that then helped me provide insights to our readers and my photographer friends.

Of course, journalism is a hard industry right now without a lot of job opportunities and pretty low pay across the board. But if you love it, I think there are lots of opportunities to take the skills of communication, interviewing, summarizing, understanding an audience, etc. and apply them to plenty of in-demand fields, including marketing, PR, branding, etc.
