I read recently that, despite a huge, ridiculous, almost criminal amount of sackings within our industry, the number of people signing up for journalism degrees rises by 24 per cent.
I have no idea what these wannabe journalists are being told, but surely they must read the three main web sites devoted to journalism. Redundancies, closures, gloom, doom and crap campaigns.
Surely they must realise the chances of getting a job have gone from fat chance to virtually fuck all.
So why do they still come?
Fuck knows. I can only think that either the NCTJ needs to keep making cash or we have another bunch of new journos who fail to pay attention to the outside world.
Read some shit about journalism jobs you mongs!
