Investigative Journalism is a great career choice if you have the mindset for it. It is a highly competitive career path that requires guts, tenacity and determination.
You need the hunger to search for the 'truth', the fearlessness to stand up to oppression, and the conversational fluency to be able to write or speak about your experiences. You need to be able to research on stories that are for the good of the public.

Investigative journalists get jobs in newspapers, magazines, websites and news channels. A lot of them work as independent freelancers as well.
