As with any aspiring journalist, you need to take a keen interest in people, current affairs and have good general knowledge. Developing your oral and written communication skills is vital so as to get your story across in an interesting and factually correct manner. Language skills are often useful, especially if you would like to travel as a part of your career. Attention to detail is a must. In writing, the fluency of language is vital. That helps deliver your message successfully.
Interpersonal communication skills are other important skills to be successful in this line. It will help you create a bond with your interviewees, the public and help you climb up the career ladder quickly.
If you want to get into the technical side of broadcast journalism, you need to have a thorough understanding of the types of AV equipment used as well as editing and other software. Be tenacious, confident and methodical in your work and we guarantee you will be successful.
Good photojournalism skills will help you to explore the field much deeper. Other than taking photos, to be able to write stories that communicate what the photo is all made of is something amazing.
