Career Exploration My dream has always been to become a successful journalist, and a great news anchor. God gave me the gift of being able to communicate effectively and I plan to use it to my advantage in the future. After I graduated from high school, I took a big break on my studies. After graduating I realized that my big dream was and always has to be on camera reporting events, entertainment, etc. Now that I am pursuing with my goals I plan to major in mass communications/ journalism. I hope I can become very successful news anchor.
I think I am a talented, but I wish to become even better. This is why I would like to enter the School of Mass Communications and earn my Bachelor of Science in Mass Communications with a specialization in journalism. After I complete my education, I want to have the ability to report about any and everything. I know I would make a great journalist because I possess the skills all brilliant journalists have, which are an inquisitive mind, an eye for detail, and the ability to grasp the truth. I have a tremendous desire to succeed in the field of journalism.
I am dedicated to achieving this goal and I will not let anything get in my way. I will prepare to become a journalist by taking the journalism course offered in my school, taking all the English classes I can. Cameras Microphones have always been my passion. I first noticed this back in elementary school. Every so often, the school would give students an opportunity to be on talent shows with the hopes of winning a grand prize. I never cared about the prize- I only wanted to be on stage and have cameras audience and a microphone in front of me.
I would spend long hours perfecting my lines, or practicing my speeches until they were near perfect. Being the show anchor every year at my elementary school went from being a prize, to a hobby, to a career goal for me. I am inspired by everything and everyone I encounter. Being on TV everyday will be an excellent way for me to feel good about myself and knowing that I achieved what I always dreamed. I want to major in journalism more than anything because I love to express myself and what better way then informing the people or entertaining them with gossip and I do not want to spend my life doing anything else.
I have so many thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and when I am in camera, it gives me a chance to let it all out for everyone to see. Above all, I want to share my opinions, research new discoveries, and investigate events, and I want the whole world to know what I have to say. I am willing to go through those erratic work schedules, sometimes having to work early in the morning or late at night. I want to be a part of an interesting coverage even if it’s at a location as long as I am the one to cover “new” story.
Although this is exciting being a news anchor has some assignments, such as reporting on military conflicts or natural disasters that may be dangerous. These assignments also may require outdoor work under adverse weather conditions, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunami, earthquakes, etc. For many people, the excitement of working in broadcasting compensates for the demanding nature of the work. Although the industry is noted for its high pressure and long hours, the work generally is not hazardous.
