  1. I’m an INFP reporter and have covered small town politics, high school sports, businesses, etc since about 2010. There’s a lot of cool stuff in this career but the possibilities are very limited. It’s the same issues, over and over and over again in local government, the school year, the local economy and businesses, the stories of people. Once you’ve done this for a little while you’ve pretty well exhausted the possibilities. The money is not good either, unfortunately. On the bright side, if you’re in a place that you enjoy living and around people you like, you can stay indefinitely as these papers/media outlets have a hard time finding competent people willing to meet deadlines and act like adults. Unfortunately, if you’re not a fourth-generation local, a lot of these small towns (or cities) will not embrace you and will treat you like an outsider permanently, which limits the amount of bonding you can do, friendships you can form, etc.

  2. I’m an INFP news journalist and investigative journalism is the best part of my job.
    Well, every aspect of my job is ideal, but that’s an added perk. Being curious by nature, it comes easily.
    I LOVE my job.
