One of the top trending topics of the day was #AdviceForYoungJournalists, which just goes to show how busy journalists are on a Tuesday morning, but it also shows how much more community could be fostered in the field.
Tweets would suggest more experienced journalists do want to help up-and-comers, but is mentorship in journalism really happening? I know I personally am supported by the more experienced people in my newsroom, but I’m also part of a small staff.
What about you all, anybody else feeling the love from the rest of the newsroom, especially at larger newsgroups? Am I the only one on a small staff getting a lot of mentorship? How about freelancers, how are you guys doing when it comes to advice/support from others in the field?
