2. Additional expenses
Pulling out clothes for fashion shoots may seem fun. After all, it’s like shopping without having to pay for your choices. But wait until you yourself do the deed. You will be carrying armloads of clothes, shoes and accessories all in one day or look for unique fashion finds until your feet kills you. And be careful with staining the dress or ruining the material of the shoes. A small damage will mean paying for clothes that are beyond your monthly clothing budget. Some clothes will even be more expensive than your annual income.
3. Socializing with people you don’t know
The job will also entail attending events and parties. This is great for people who love the party scene and those who are exactly into the party circuit. But if you are the kind of person who would rather stay at home and read a book, this job may not be for you. Hobnobbing with the rich and the famous without genuine interest may come out as contrived and false. This is not good for your reputation and for reputation of the magazine that you work for.
4. Overlapping deadlines
If you think you will just be given one assignment in a week, think again. Most writers will have several coverage in a day! And what is more, they are expected to write all of them. If it has a time element, the stories may even be published in one issue.
5. Boring coverage
Not all events are fun and happening. In your job, there will be events that are super boring and worthless. But no matter how bad the event is, you need to write about it as it is your job. So if you are not creative enough to come out with something out of nothing, magazine publishing is not for you. You need to be able to find a connection between things that are not really there in the first place.
Sounds tough? It is. So it's definitely not for everyone.
