What skills should our students have to enter the media field?

The six media professionals were asked what qualities they think our students should have.

Grammar and spelling ability – So many aspects of media work involve writing, including writing pitches. A proposal for a $10,000 project could be a good concept but could lose funding due to errors in writing.

Curiosity – Curiosity about people and what makes people tick. Curiosity about issues.

Being able to realize and understand cultural context.

Passion about the media industry.
