English majors hear a lot of dire statements about the less-than-abundant job prospects awaiting them after graduation, but many remain hopeful about their futures despite these nerve-wracking warnings. Some are interested in going into journalism, a field that seems particularly risky to enter in the digital age. At a recent Berkeley Connect in English event, Professor Mark Danner spoke with students about his experiences as a journalist and academic, and delivered a welcome message: despite the uncertainty involved in pursuing a career in an industry that is very much in flux, it’s not entirely hopeless!
