What is the entry-level salary for a journalist?

I am thinking about going for an entry level role in PR or journalism, and I'm trying to weigh out the pros and cons of both. What could I potentially make as a blogger or associate editor? Any advice from folks in this field?



When I first started out at a teen magazine in 2010, I was making 26k (hah!) but I quickly made my way up the ladder and am now making 95k. So you can see things turn around quickly. My advice is, when you're first starting out, get to know as many people as possible and write for free. Build up your social media presence (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and get your name out there. That's how you eventually make money as an editor/blogger.
