How to Answer

The interviewer would like to know the types of topics and work that interest you the most. Then, they can better gauge where they could place you, or the kinds of assignments you would most like to deliver. Discuss your topics of interest while also ensuring that they align well with some of the work you would be asked to perform in this role. Show enthusiasm for writing and journalism over a handful of topics rather than sticking to just one.

Professional Answer Examples
