Look.t the interviewer directly, but don’t get into a stare down! Reach her by email, or follow her on Twitter . Don’t forget to think about soft skills when you prepare for interviews to be sure you demonstrate everything you have to offer the employer. Never whine, gripe or complain about past employers, jobs, classes, etc. This doesn’t just give you the opportunity to visit the loo time spent waiting in the reception area can be very useful if there are publications about the employer or their field of work to read. You want to outshine all other candidates, so “turn it on” during the interview! How do you feel about the company? “Where do you hope to be five years from now?” Sang her answers to questions. Exactly what you need to do will vary depending on your role in the interview.
But the newspaper market over here is completely crazy, in ways that I expected and ways I didnt. What passes for a newspaper in the UK is sometimescoming from the US, its kind of a shock, particularly the tabloids. What will pass for news is kind of amazing. Cable news in the US is what newspapers are in the UKI think thats probably how I would put it. blogWhat will you miss about working in a newsroom? Certainly not the daily dose of news and that kind of rhythm; I wont miss that at all. I havent been doing that for a very long time. I was a newspaper reporter for a lot of years and I have been there and done that. The industry is changing so quickly, I will miss being right there at the heart of it.
