There are quite a few questions that you need to ask yourself if you want to become a reporter. Assess your responses and that will solve your confusion whether you have the right aptitude and interest to become a reporter or not. Below are those questions that you need to ask.

1. Are you curious enough to find the hidden facts and stories behind any event. This is extremely important part of a reporter's job. They have to be investigative in order to gather the facts and information and share that with common public. The more detailed information that you fetch, better your work will be.

2. Do you like to share and discuss the general things with your friends and peers. A reporter's role is about sharing the news stories with the common people and making them aware about it. If you enjoy informing people about anything new, anything that they are unaware of, then this is the right profession for you.

3. How well you communicate? The communication is the only path of achieving success as a reporter. The more communications you make and the better you make them, more successful you will be. You may have to work on polishing your communication skills - be it written or oral communication skills in order to be effective as a reporter.

4. Are you excited about news stories? One has to be addicted to the latest news and happenings around them. That is one thing that drives many reporters. You have to be excited about your work then only you can get job satisfaction in this profession. You will have to go to far off places and dig in to the facts. If you have right passion, you will be able to do that easily.

In case you are not able to discern whether you have that passion and zeal to become a writer you should take a psychometric assessment test and see what it suggests in terms of your aptitude and skills. You can take that test in the website's homepage depending on the qualification that you have at the moment.
