"I want to become a multimedia journalist because I love to tell stories through writing, but also through pictures and video. I feel that I have experience in using multiple types of media to tell a thorough story for our television broadcasts and for our website."
A good answer should include why the candidate wants to perform the job, and why they feel that they have the skills to do it well. A candidate should explain their experience in writing, reporting, interviewing, and editing video and pictures. The candidate should highlight what has influenced them to become a multimedia journalist.
"I believe Albany, New York will benefit from me working here because I am already familiar with the northeast. I love the weather here, and know that snow is a big economy drive in the area. My prior knowledge of the northeast will help me gain insight into the topics that people in Albany care about."
The candidate should discuss their best qualities as they relate to multimedia journalism and how their knowledge of the job will benefit the whole community. The candidate can discuss ways that their reporting, writing, and photography could help spread the word on local issues, national concerns, or human interest stories to boost spirits.
A good response should make the candidate seem like they want to be a part of the community and will strive to get to know the location they are in. Oftentimes in the field, a multimedia journalist must move to a new part of the country that they have never lived in before, and they must demonstrate their ability to get to know a new area quickly.
