JournChat Fun!

JournChat has to be one of the most fun and rewarding things I did his semester!

I really liked because there was a constant conversation from all people around the world and you just talk about journalism and issues going on that world. I spoke to some really smart people, received insight and saw things from a different angle. It was a bit hard to follow at first. The newsfeed was going out of control, but it got better as I learned how to set up my Tweetdeck to work for me. It is such a way to network. I started following two people and they followed me back. One was a freelancer and one was PR. They direct messaged me and gave me some useful advice for finding a job and being successful in life.

At first, I thought because I’m a young 19 year old junior at Michigan State University, no one would value what I had to say. Or people would just blow me off because of how young I am and I don’t have much experience in the field. But people were so receptive and nice. I felt like “one of the guys”. It was friendly debate and I had a great time

JournChat is something that I plan on being a part of in the future.
