Social media, online publications, blogging, and more! As a journalist, you will be expected to understand how all platforms work together to make up journalism as we know it today. Discuss your knowledge of social media, rating your expertise from 1-10 or from beginner to expert. Then, talk about the ways that you work with social media platforms in your current role, and how your abilities on these platforms can help your potential new employer.
"I consider myself an advanced user on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I post to these platforms on a daily basis, and know how to plan content that works well together, how to create graphics for more exciting posts and the best types of call to actions that encourage sharing and commenting."
"I recently took an online course on Twitter, bringing me to an intermediate level of knowledge with that platform. Facebook I know best, and my Instagram game is strong as well. In today's digital age, I believe it's critical for any journalist to know how to navigate all social platforms."
