Every day, I check Poynter’s “Ask the Recruiter” column online. Joe Grimm, the guy who answers the questions, has a lot of experience working at papers and although he took a buyout from the Detroit Free Press, he still likes to answer the “tough questions.”
His response was that getting a master’s could be a good idea and that it can open a lot of doors. But it is only worth spending all the money to get a master’s if you are learning a lot of new stuff, not just repeating what you earned a bachelor’s in.
Good to know other people are wondering the same thing as me.
