Internet media are creating jobs, just not fast enough

I found this data from Advertising Age fascinating: Internet media are now the second-largest employer in the media industry, trailing only newspapers. The represent 18 percent of the media industry jobs, according to the graphic that accompanies the article.

While newspapers are shedding 1,400 jobs a month, internet media are creating 400 jobs, according to Ad Age. Digital media now employ more than broadcast TV.

Sounds like a compelling argument for more focus in journalism schools on training students in multimedia journalism.
