Entry-level writing jobs and your future

While your parents may not be taking the news for your journalistic aspirations as well as they would if your dreams involved med school, the future is looking up for writers. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the Bureau of Labor Statistics concludes that there is a growing demand for writers that will reach around triple the current average around the year 2014.
It may seem a bit odd that in a world that is becoming more and more technical that the demand for writers would increase but upon reflection it is hard to not notice that someone needs to create all the published work available on the Internet. Writers and editors are needed for all kinds of jobs like advertising copy to periodicals. A simple entry-level writing job search shows that writers are already coming into a demand. For example, the new news information medium is bloging. Blogging gives a voice to anyone with an opinion but advertisers are also using this form to sell products. So there are lots of places to get your name out there in the writing world through an entry-level job opportunity and there is also an ability to get paid!
