Most employers who are looking for a journalist will require a Bachelor's degree in journalism, communication, English, or a related field. Although your education is on your resume, the interviewer is asking you to expand on your post-secondary education experience. A few highlights you can focus on are some of the relevant topics you learned about while attending your journalism courses. Discuss how your post-secondary education will help you in this new role.

The courses in this program helped me to develop stronger industry relationships through professional correspondence. I also learned persuasive writing skills which have proven to be incredibly helpful when writing pieces on the hottest topics of today."
"I recently completed my Bachelor's Degree in English, thinking that I wanted to be a content writer for online publications, and social media content. I ended up changing my path slightly, into sports journalism. The courses that I excelled in included Advanced Interviewing Techniques as well as Broadcast for on-air performance, and field producing."
