Journalism is a highly competitive profession and only the proficient and tough can play a successful innings. Personal qualities and training are equally important for becoming a good journalist. Specialist in any subject - science, economics, psychology , social work, fashion , career counselling, films, sports and os on-can enter the field of journalism. Their mode of entry is normally through freelance contributions. If these are good, the writer may be taken on as a special; correspondent or may contribute columns on a regular basis. Major newspapers/magazines sometimes advertise for graduates and postgraduates to join as trainee journalist. Trainees are inducted through a written test and interview. The written test assesses the overall general awareness of the candidate and his / her power of expression. The interview attempts to to assess the personality for potential as a journalist. Trainee journalists can climb up in hierarchy by dint of hardwork, application, experience and exposure., Whatever be the route of entry into journalism the prospects are good provided one has the personal attributes for the profession and control of language and subject so that what he/she writes is accurate , readable and topical too
. Freelance journalist can earn high emoluments if they are prolific and enjoy a wide readership.
