A new survey of journalism and mass
communications graduates shows that the level of employment rose slightly in
2010. The survey, one of four conducted regularly by the Grady College of
Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia and funded in
part by the NAA Foundation, reveals that 2010 bachelor's degree recipients reported
a full-time employment level of 58.2 percent, up from 55.5 percent a year
Most of those surveyed said they had the skills upon graduation to write, edit
and use still photography for the Web, as well as to adapt to the digital
environment generally and use social media professionally. However, they also
indicated they lacked some skill they needed for the job market, with Web
skills of various types dominating the list of needed accomplishments.
