Professional development

Latvia does not have statistics on how many of the people who have earned a degree in journalism and media, continue to exercise a profession. Some move to work in other sectors related to communications, for example, in public relations, advertising agencies, marketing etc. Although in Latvia switching from journalism to public relations is considered  as a kind of devaluation of journalistic ideals, there are several publicly well-known journalists, which have made this maneuver and returned to journalism successfully.
