Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.
The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
Journalists keep people updated about the latest happenings around the world. They get information from their sources and sometimes they travel to the site to get first-hand information. They then assemble the information together and write compelling stories that interest readers. As part of their job, journalists spend several hours every day gathering news, writing and editing copy, proofreading, researching and verifying facts and liaising with editors, photographers, and other journalists.
Journalists are typically employed by newspapers, television networks, magazines and other publications. Although a degree in journalism is not a mandatory requirement, it will boost your chances of getting hired by an established publication. Perseverance, determination, enthusiasm, stamina and outstanding verbal and communication skills are essential attributes for journalists.
At your interview for a job as a journalist, be prepared to explain in detail why you chose this particular career, what are your strengths for this role and also what are your weaknesses as a journalist. You may also be asked how you would approach certain situations and what are your skills as an interviewer. The best way to showcase your writing skills is to carry along some clippings of your best journalistic pieces. Answering all questions confidently is the key to a winning journalist interview. Knowing in advance what questions to expect can give you the edge. You can find these at mock interview questions for jounalists.
