For Some Journalists, Leaving and Coming Back Was the Right Decision

From a story on poynter.org by Elizabeth Djinis headlined “Why leaving journalism and coming back was the right decision”:

Journalism is an industry that is as much a self-identifier as it is a profession.

Some say it’s a calling. Others treat it like a self-selecting Myers-Briggs type. Whatever the chosen designation, this view of journalism tends to take on sacred overtones that mask what it actually is — a job.
