Long-Distance Dedication: Maintaining a Relationship with a Media Job

Journalism can be a transient industry, as we move between markets before establishing our career in one. It can take a toll on our personal life — in particular, love life — but it doesn't have to. We hear from real couples who made it work. They’ll go over how to grow your career in your new market and grow your relationship, even when you don't know when your career paths will merge again. Plus, we’ll have advice on supporting each other and helping each other cope with daily stresses of the fast-paced media world when you're apart.
