Yes you really have to be very good at your interpersonal skills if you want to become a journalist and excel in this career. Below mentioned points with the explanations will help you understand how these skills can be of great help in the career journey as a journalist:


1. As a journalist you will have to interview a large number of people in your career. Some of them will be prominent personalities and other public figures. The point is when you are interviewing such people you really have to show some respect and at the same time you need to do the conversations professionally so that you can extract the best information out of the interview while ensuring that the other person is comfortable talking to you. You cannot afford to offend the person you are interviewing and thus you will have to be careful.

2. The journalists are required to go out and meet a large number of people so that they can conduct their research and dig in to the details so that the right information could be extracted. This needs them to interact with a number of people every day and interact with them in such a way that they can extract the right information out of them. This skill is crucial and can only be learnt if one is good with his or her interpersonal skills.

3. The journalists have to coordinate well with their team members so that they can smoothly present their stories and there are no lags or delays in the whole process. If only they are good with their interpersonal skills and able to coordinate with everyone nicely, then this can be accomplished.

Therefore it is clear that the interpersonal skills play an important role for any journalist and one really needs to work on them if they want to succeed in this career. Also these skills take a lot of time to be developed in any individual and thus one has to be patient while learning them. Only practice can make you perfect.
