newspaper reporter

  • writes stories for the newspaper.
  • median salary- $ 36,000
  • why this job is stressful- In these times of newsroom austerity and mounting pressure to produce multi-media reports as news is breaking, while competing with lightning-fast social media and a plethora of blogs, this job deserves to be on the top ten list. Of course reporters also cover wars and assume some of the same risks as members of the military. Meantime, the market for old fashioned newspaper journalists continues to shrink, meaning that many reporters feel they must stay in unhappy, risky positions at a time when they would prefer to move on.
