Telephone journalist

More and more print interviews are being carried out on the telephone.

That’s why we increasingly incorporate this format into our media training courses.

If you have experience of carrying out print telephone interviews, and would be interested in working on a freelance basis, we’d love to hear from you.

You’ll need to be able to turn copy around quickly as we always aim to provide delegates with a write-up of their interview by the end of the course.

You will also need to be able to provide honest, detailed and constructive feedback, both verbally and written.

Our clients come from a wide range of sectors and delegates can vary from media savvy CEOs to new starters who have not faced a journalist before, so you will need to be able to tailor your interview style accordingly.

Sometimes you will be in the role of a trade journalist and at others you will be from a national tabloid. You may just have one person to interview, or you could be tasked with putting three or four delegates under pressure in quick succession.

Confidentiality, as you can probably imagine, is at the heart of everything we do, so you’ll need to be willing to sign a master services agreement.
