1.
What is your greatest strength? How does it help you as a Voice Writing Reporter?
The candidate should discuss what they believe is their greatest strength and why this helps them on the job. Whether the strength is something that directly relates to the career, or is something more personal about their personality that makes them a great fit for the company, the candidate should talk about why this skill or strength makes them a great fit.

Christina's Answer
"My greatest strength is my ability to work with a team. I am a great team player, which makes me a good fit for this job because I am willing to work with clients who hire me to transcribe interviews, and I am a good communicator to the rest of the team on the progress of my work."
2.
What is your typing speed?
A professional typer should be able to type upwards of 60-75 words per minute. The candidate should be sure that they are able to type at least this fast with little to no errors so they can do the job properly.

Christina's Answer
"I am able to type at 70 words per minute with little to no errors. I have been working up to this speed my entire life, and I feel that I will be able to type anyone's speech at this rate."
3.
How helpful is the digital sound recorder?
Oftentimes, technology is known to fail. While digital voice recorders help voice reporters catch parts of what they are transcribing that they missed, there is always the chance that the recording will fail and they will miss that section of the transcription completely. The candidate should discuss how much emphasis they put on a recorder in their job.

Christina's Answer
"I find that the best voice writing reporters do not use a recorder because technology is known to fail so often. I have trained myself to be able to transcribe without one, but always have one running in the off chance that it becomes useful down the line."
4.
Are you a detail oriented person?
A hiring manager is looking for someone who will pay close attention to detail and strive to produce error-free work while they are listening, typing, and editing. The candidate should talk about how they have progressed throughout their career in terms of being clean and concise in their writing and finding errors before the product is released to the client.

Christina's Answer
"I am a very detail oriented person, which I believe is a necessity to do this job well. Over the years, I have watched myself progress to someone who is overly cautious in my writing, and that has helped me rise in status in this career."
5.
What are your long term goals?
While the future is never known, and many things can change as time goes on, the candidate should talk about what their ultimate career goal is, and how this current job will help them get there. They should talk about what skills they hope to gain and improve on during this job and how this will make them achieve their future goals.

Christina's Answer
"My ultimate career goal is to become a voice writing reporter at the White House. In this job, I believe I will gain the trust to pursue larger clients, but for now I am excited to get better and faster at typing and producing work."
