Some of the best #AdviceForYoungJournalists

Yesterday, Felix Salmon of Fusion doled out some grim advice for young journalists, namely that “life is not good for journalists” and that jobs in journalism, like his, are a combination of luck and privilege. Don’t do it, he says. Vox‘s Ezra Klein offered a rebuttal encouraging young journalists to trade prestige for opportunity, to outwork their elders, and to do work that will get noticed.


Journalists took to Twitter to offer some of their own advice. Here’s some of the best. Scroll down for a live feed of the hashtag which is now trending on Twitter.
