After getting my journalism degree, I began working part-time at a small radio station. A new, full-time job at the station opened up, and I applied for the chance to earn more money and responsibilities. I got it and was promised a higher salary and benefits. When that didn’t come, I inquired but was continually brushed off. I loved working in radio but it was becoming painfully clear I was being taken advantage of.
For those that love what they do but also love making money, how do they avoid being taken advantage of? It happens to passionate workers in various forms and industries, but is possibly prevented with thorough research of the company you are applying for.
