Crossing Over

My close friend will take a big step tomorrow morning as she interviews for a public relations/marketing job. As dedicated journalists, we’ve often joked about “crossing over to the dark side” of public relations. But it looks as if she may actually take that red-eye to the other side.

In fairness, she’s been treated less-than-ideally by her company, a Gannett newspaper. Furlough, anyone? So I don’t blame her for considering the option. And I suppose it’s not like hundreds of tasty journalism jobs are up for grabs right now.

I just hope she’s ready for the degradation and constant belittling by us remaining journalists, her old newshound professors and anyone else she admits her transition to. 😉

Good luck on your interview, friend.
