How do you think that online media has changed traditional print and broadcast media approaches in the past 10 years?
This industry is ever-changing, and all types of media outlets have been scrambling to keep up with the introduction of online media. Talk to the interviewer about your insights when it comes to the changes you have witnessed in traditional media since the introduction of online media.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"Online media has changed the way we digest information. Most people look for content online because it's fast and we can read the opinions of others which helps us to form our own. This content is both convenient and dangerous at times as it doesn't necessarily promote free thought. I think that traditional print media has become lighter and more entertainment-driven because of this."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I believe that online media has rapidly increased the amount of content that we feel we need in a day. Where it used to be that our parents would watch or read the local news once every morning or evening, we are now constantly logging in, and looking for updates on stories that may not even directly affect us. This response means that newspapers are often struggling with sales, and we have global 24/7 news channels."
2.
If you could pitch an idea for a news segment today, what would it be?
The interviewer would like to get to know you apart from your resume. Since there are multiple areas of interest when it comes to the news (current events, sports, politics, etc.), Bloomberg wants to uncover what sparks and motivates you the most. Discuss an idea you would pitch for a news show today if you had full control. Be sure to show excitement and enthusiasm!

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I love to pitch show ideas, and I have a running document with ideas that come to me throughout the day. I am working on smoothing a few of them out right now. One of these ideas is a show on emerging female athletes in our region. I believe there are so many talented girls out there who could use an extra boost of funding and community support. If you're interested, I would be happy to flesh that idea out further and formally pitch it once I begin working for Bloomberg."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"I would love to gain more experience when it comes to pitching news segments. I am very dedicated when it comes to political topics and reporting. I would pitch a news segment giving viewers an insiders' look at how campaigns are built and won. I find this topic fascinating, and am sure your audience would as well."
3.
Walk me through your editing experience. How would you rate your editing skills from 1-10?
Even if your primary role with Bloomberg is not officially as an editor, the interviewer will want to see that you have a solid basis when it comes to language, context, tone, grammar, spelling, and more. Emphasize your solid command of the language, and your ability to pay attention to the small details. Discuss the types of editing jobs you have taken on in the past.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I have helped to edit documents large, and small, including whitepapers, web copy, and sales contracts. I am confident in my language, spelling, and grammar skills. It's rare that a mistake will get past me, as I pay strong attention to the small details."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"Although I have not formally edited a document of significance, I do always make a habit of double checking my emails and other internal or external communication. I have used editing programs such as Grammarly in the past, for assignments and papers while attending university."
4.
Market research is essential to Bloomberg to help us understand where to take our business in the years to come. Rate your research skills from 1-10. Do you enjoy conducting research?
In the media and publishing industry, research and reliable sources are everything. Assure the interviewer that you are capable of conducting robust and dependable research. Draw on your positive references when answering this question.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"One of the reasons why I would love to work for Bloomberg is because of your solid reputation for reputable sources and research. In my previous positions, I have always earned recognition for my great research skills. When you call my references, they will attest to this as well. There is always room for improvement, so for that reason, I would rate myself as an 8.5 out of 10 for research capabilities."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"When it comes to research capabilities, I am most definitely a 10/10. An eleven even, if that is allowed! I love researching a large range of products and am very data and analytically minded."
5.
In your opinion, what is the most influential form of media today?
Bloomberg presents a lot of content to millions of readers every day. They have a significant influence on multiple platforms. Have a meaningful conversation with the interviewer on media influence. With so many forms of media out there, which do you feel is the most influential at the moment? Be sure to back your answer.

Rachelle's Answer #1
"I feel that the most influential form of media today is social media and online content. As a whole, the human race wants fast, easy to consume, entertainment news. Our rate of consumption is unprecedented, and the fastest way to access it is through online content sharing."
Rachelle's Answer #2
"There are many important forms of media today - so many, in fact, that people seem to be getting overwhelmed. I would still say that traditional media, in the form of television and the daily news, is at the top when it comes to the number of people influenced and the quality of the content distributed."
