Newspapers really are a huge a part of society and daily existence Columnists Day remembers the job of those who research, write and convey our newspapers.
There are no beginners when it comes to advice columnists. You need to build up hefty experience in writing, newspapers and journalism to get a job like that. Like any other newspaper job, you'll have to go in every day and the pay will be terrible.
You'll likely have to start out as a regular beat reporter, covering stories for newspapers and writing about various topics. No one goes straight from school to being a columnist. That's like saying how can you be a beginning who runs an Apple Store? They're not going to hire you right out of the gate with a top-level job. You need to pay your dues and get experience. The cushy jobs like advice columnist
require a lot of hard work.

Crossing Paths by Dianne Blacklock
I found it to be a relaxing, funny read. Jo Liddell is a journalist in Sydney fighting her way to be recognised as a worthy columnist even though she gets stuck doing fluff pieces most of the time. She has just bought her own flat, is having an affair with a married man and generally feels pretty good about her life. The only thing missing-even though she’s not really looking-is a man she can have a decent relationship with. In steps Joe Bannister. Award-winning journalist and swarthy to boot. Joe is a likeable character who has come back to Australia to be near his ailing father but is not looking to fall in love. Jo and Joe come head-to-head on many occasions and their families and friends provide a familiar backdrop for their squabbles and dramas. However, just when you think the two Jo/es are destined to be together, there’s another surprising twist to the story. Crossing Paths is an entertaining, well-written romp for its genre and one for the Marian Keyes fans out there
