I am a dual citizen of the US and Australia. I'm roughly two and a half years away from earning my bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism. I am well aware through talking to graduates in my major how difficult it is to establish a decent career in journalism and that internships and making connections are key. However, I have been thinking a lot about my future. I have strong desire to move back to Australia. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the experience someone in my position might have. Will being educated in the states hurt any chance at a career in Australia? Would it help to study "abroad" at a university in Australia while I am an undergraduate? Or maybe seek a graduate program in Australia? I'm admittedly ignorant about this and I would appreciate some honest insight! Cheers!

Don't know a lot about Journalism - but many have had to "cut their teeth" in a country area before moving into the major cities.
This is something to bear in mind, so you don't have aspirations of moving straight back to Sydney or Melbourne for example.

^As much as I would prefer to move back to Melbourne and, as most people in their early 20's, prefer big cities, I am not closed off to small towns and country areas. I spent my very early childhood in such an area, so I do have affection for those places. And I think it is character-building to be immersed in a community different from what one is most used to.
