Insight for Aspiring Journalists from LinkedIn Influencers

Just in time for graduation, LinkedIn Editor Isabelle Roughol recently published data collected from more than 80 LinkedIn Influencers who offered what advice they would give to their 22-year-old selves. Knowing what they know now, several participants who work in media offered nuggets of wisdom.

In college, just before I embarked on a career as a writer, I wish I had known that there would be no trade-off between living a well-rounded life and my ability to do good work. I wish I could go back and tell myself, ‘Arianna, your performance will actually improve if you can commit to not only working hard, but also unplugging, recharging and renewing yourself.’ That would have saved me a lot of unnecessary stress, burnout and exhaustion.
