Abstract The objective of this research was to understand how journalists perceive their trade in major cities of the Colombian Caribbean region; to achieve a mixed research method was used, applying a qualitative and a quantitative phase, which was subsequently interconnected by a triangulation of data. Among the findings it was established that journalists in the Colombian Caribbean region exercising their profession gives great job satisfaction (defined as the pleasure experienced when practicing journalism) but little job satisfaction (which refers to conditions recruitment and remuneration). It was found that there is an intention of journalists qualify, however, with little free time they have low wages and remuneration, difficult for them to this end. Lack of passion for the job and lack of methods for investigative journalism, are examples of this: disagreements within the empirical media between journalists and journalists with professional training in the field wreaked.

Keywords : Journalism; Caribbean Region; Colombia; job satisfaction; job satisfaction.
