I was asked about my freelance work, with the understandable implication that it would be difficult to juggle my time in the position with other writing outlets.

1 Answer

I told them the position would come first and that I wasn't likely to continue freelancing if it became tough to manage.

Why should we choose you?

1 Answer

They asked about problems I'd helped solved, stories that had stumped me and how I'd worked through them, and some fairly basic newsroom stuff. ("What sources would you get a hold of?" etc.) They asked about what beats I was following, where I got my news from, and what my story ideas were.
