42 Broadcast Journalist Questions and Answers:

1 :: Suppose if you had the opportunity to cover any news story in the last 1 year, which one would it be and why?

The news story you mention is not really important, the interviewer wants to see how enthusiastic you are and also gauge your understanding of big news stories. So, make sure you talk about one that you know enough about. Tell the interviewer how you would have liked to cover the story and if you thought any angle was missed or unnecessarily highlighted by the media.

4 :: Tell us which Story Over the Last 12 Months Would You Have Liked to Cover and Why?

Again, wide-ranging knowledge of news are going to be essential here. But you don't need to restrict yourself to current affairs. Having a broad knowledge of science, health, environment, lifestyle, arts and business news will let your potential employer know that you have the ability to cover a wide variety of topics. But don't just grab for the hottest event from the past year. Try to think of something which hasn't been covered as much as you would have liked, which affects the publication's audience at the grassroots level. This will show you're an original thinker. Also, suggest how you would have spun the topic. This will tip off your potential boss that you're ripe and ready to get to work with the confidence to pitch your own ideas.

7 :: Tell me why do you want to become a journalist?

You can talk about your interest in current affairs or your writing skills. If you feel it is your social responsibility to bring to the notice of people any malpractices and corruption, talk about it. Discuss an issue that you strongly feel about, do not give abstract answers such as "I like traveling". Your answer should be relevant and realistic, avoid exaggeration.

8 :: Tell me why do you want to work in this medium?

If you have decided to work in a particular medium, you obviously have your own reasons and should be in a good position to answer this question. Talk about the advantages of the medium and how you think you can contribute to it. Avoid answers like "I did not get a job elsewhere."

9 :: Suppose you may be required to travel to remote places at irregular hours. Will you be comfortable with that?

If you have decided to pursue journalism, then I am assuming your answer to this question would be yes. Tell the interviewer you love people and places and are always on the look out for story ideas. If you have any reservations, then be vocal, there is no backing out once you get the job.

10 :: Suppose if I told you, our writers must write in a blog, would you be okay with that?
