4 Reasons to Pursue a Career in Communication

The digital media and communication industry is rapidly expanding, particularly as social media and technology continue to evolve. There's never been a better time to pursue a job in this exciting and fast-paced field. Whether you are a student about to pick a major or are a working professional who is hoping to make a career change, here are four reasons to enter the communication industry.
Extensive Opportunities

The communication field is very broad and encompasses a wide variety of jobs. For those interested in being in front of the camera, there are opportunities to work in journalism, news and online media. For people who prefer to work behind the scenes, there are positions in advertising, public relations, marketing, copy writing, editing and web production. With the expansion of social media websites and online networking, there are also many chances to work in the areas of branding and social media management. You can easily integrate your various interests to create a job that is fulfilling and emphasizes your strengths, such as combining a love of writing and photography to become a freelance journalist or using your talent for marketing and strategizing to become a social media specialist.
Income

Communication jobs, particularly in the journalism field, can be incredibly lucrative. Some of the highest paying communication positions are in marketing and PR, with salaries of over $100,000 per year. There are also highly profitable positions in the areas of technical writing, editing, advertising and market research. Even those just beginning their careers can expect to make a comfortable living, with entry-level salaries starting around $50,000.
Flexibility

Working as a communication professional gives you the opportunity to work for a media company like Jukin Media or to strike out on your own as a self-employed freelancer. Whether you choose to work for an established company or go it alone, taking a job in the communication industry also offers you the possibility of having a flexible work arrangement. With modern technology, you have the ability to submit work from anywhere in the world, which means you can work out of your living room or local coffee shop rather than a traditional office. Some communication jobs, such as journalism and public relations, even offer the ability to travel the world or relocate to another area of the country.
Creativity

Whether you are writing, taking photographs, editing, producing content, developing a marketing plan or creating social media branding, there are countless opportunities for creativity within the communication industry. You will have the ability to use your imagination and artistic skills every day while on the job. You will also have the chance to collaborate and brainstorm with other communication professionals, which leads to greater innovation.

This is a field that will only continue to grow and expand, so it's a great time to make the leap and explore your passion for communication. Following a new path can be intimidating, but being aware of the facts can help you feel confident in your decision to pursue a career in this industry.
