Here’s How an Actual Young Journalist Sees #AdviceForYoungJournalists

Seeing #AdviceForYoungJournalists trending today was great because, as a journalism student, I know young journalists can never get enough advice. This really applies to any journalist of any age, since it's an industry dealing with more changes than most others, even though the most important parts of it will never change.

The Core of Journalism Never Changes

If there's one thing the #AdviceForYoungJournalists hashtag again proved to me, it's no matter how much technology changes the world, the core principles of journalism will stay the same. And they'll always be the most important thing about it.

Accuracy and trying to inform people, not incite them, have always been just a few things that matter most. While there's so many new ways for us to read news, no matter how insane they get, principles like these will still be vital - even in 10 years, when people watch the news through virtual landscapes that re-enact events.

So much of what I read from #AdviceForYoungJournalists looked familiar since I'd heard most of it before, but that isn't bad. All it did was re-affirm all these ideas will always be right.

There are plenty of areas changing around the field, though. As you'd expect, they're all online and giving journalists lots of trouble. If you're expecting a detailed list of what these digital areas are, that's impossible to write. That's because, while the main list of journalism principles will never change, everything else is changing at all times. It changes so often that any list trying to narrow them down would be useless in less than two days.

No matter how crazy the technology around news becomes, even if we're having real holograms (not fakes) of anchors sent into our living rooms, journalists will be able to learn the skills changing around journalism's unchanging core.
