Keen competition is expected for many jobs, particularly in large metropolitan areas, due to the large number of jobseekers attracted by the glamour of this industry.
Job prospects will be best for applicants with a college degree in broadcasting or a related field, as well as relevant work experience.
Many entry-level positions are at smaller broadcast stations; consequently, workers often must change employers, and sometimes relocate, to advance.
