Jacob Kushner talks freelance

Jacob is a freelance journalist from the United States who works in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, hence his website

He talked to our new group of students this morning about his workmethodes and how the big newsorganisations (he works a lot for Associated Press), magazines (like Newsweek) and newspapers work.

Jacob's told them also how tough the bizniz can be - for instance he did not sell anything in the last past 6 weeks. So he now tries to get other magazines interested in his work. A lot of the work of a freelancer is acquisition.
