1.
What is your least favorite part of the job?
The candidate should discuss what their least favorite part of the job is, but ultimately should be positive about working through it. They should discuss something that they struggle with or dislike doing and why, but also talk about how over time they see themselves fixing that dislike.

Christina's Answer
"My least favorite part of the job is sitting in an office for so long while other meteorologists are able to get outside. However, I see myself finding more opportunities in this job to get outside and field produce with the other meteorologists."
2.
What is your favorite weather event you have covered and how did your forecasting stack up?
The candidate should discuss a weather event they have covered and how the forecasting measured up to the actual event. They should discuss ways that they forecasted the event leading up to it, and how the outcome turned out. This will show the hiring manager their quickness and accuracy of forecasting.

Christina's Answer
"My favorite weather event I covered was Hurricane Irene. We knew it was tracking up the east coast, and I predicted it would hit closer inland than the projections were suggesting. Sure enough, we saved a few businesses who previously wouldn't have boarded up their windows, and today they are still standing."
3.
How can this station improve their forecasting procedures?
While the candidate should not criticize the current weather procedures in place, he or she should offer some ways that when they come into the office they would improve its overall functionality. Some suggestions could be from organization to updating graphics.

Christina's Answer
"When I get into the weather department, I hope to create more specialty graphics. While I think the department already does a great job of creating graphics for the summer and wintertime, I look forward to adding ones for specific events to keep the shows fresh."
4.
Do you have any experience in front of the camera?
The candidate should discuss any experience they have on camera, if any. Some weather producers hope to be in front of the camera one day, while others specifically choose to stay behind it. The candidate should discuss which one they are and how it will affect the job.

Christina's Answer
"I someday hope to be the meteorologist in front of the camera. However, I wanted to get my start in a weather department and behind the scenes is how I could do that. I hope to gain as much knowledge about weather behind the scenes so someday I can be in front of the camera."
5.
What type of education did you receive to be qualified for this job?
The candidate should discuss their previous education and how it relates to the job. They may discuss degrees, certifications, and even internships and experience they have had to qualify them to work in the weather industry.

Christina's Answer
"I studied in my undergraduate career to get a degree in broadcast meteorology. However, I decided to forgo being on camera so I can work solely as a producer."
