The lecture given Nov. 17 by foreign correspondent Kristen Chick, reporter for the Christian Science Monitor, was an enlightening and informative one. At this time, Chick works for the Christian Science Monitor, an international news organization, by covering current events in the areas of Egypt and the Middle East. Chick has a bachelor's degree from the University of Alabama, and she fluently speaks the Arabic language. To start her lecture, Chick explained how there are many opportunities for journalists when they work abroad. However, many young journalists do not think about working internationally because they have little interest in global politics. Furthermore, Chick explained that the job market in the United States is currently not doing well, and that many journalists should consider becoming a foreign correspondent. Because of the bad job market in the United States journalism industry, many media companies are looking for more correspondents to cover news in other countries. However, many journalists in the United States do not think about this option because it involves so many risks.
