Top Career to Avoid: Broadcast News Analyst

Annual Salary for News Analysts: $80,750 (median salary in NYC)

Expected Growth by 2020: -13%

Number of Broadcast News Analysts in NYC: 310

Why You Should Avoid it:

It can be easy to look at the salary of a News Analyst and think that its a great career to get into, but there is more to this story.

After majoring in communications, many people look to NYC to provide an entry point into their Broadcasting career.

Unfortunately, thousands of people have had the same thought, leading to an ultra-competitive position that is declining.

If you’re considering becoming a Broadcaster, this is a career in NYC to avoid, so look outside the city for opportunities.

Alternate Career to Pursue: Broadcast Technician/Engineer

Annual Salary for Broadcast Engineers: $52,440 (median salary in NYC)

Expected Growth by 2020: 9%

Number of Broadcast Technicians in NYC: 3,360

Why You Should Pursue it:

If you want to work in television but want to stay in the city, the position of Broadcasting Engineer should be on your radar.

Although the pay isn’t quite as high as a news analyst the position is growing and in-demand.

There are plenty of opportunities for advancement and less competition, providing a more stable and dependable career.
