    This post should have listed some of the so-called non-traditional paths. Are the non-traditional paths PR and marketing? If they are, I’m glad. I went to J-school, graduated and crossed over into marketing. That was the best decision I ever made. Why develop an ulcer by 30 when you can make a lot of money and develop an ulcer by 33? LOL. The thing I don’t like about journalists is that they look down on marketers and PR people, because they think they are better–because they haven’t sold out. I have to laugh when I think about that because um, GE owns NBC, and FOX is a media conglomerate. We have all sold out.
