To become a successful journalist you need to have following work values:


1. You should always be ready to face the new challenges. The job of a journalist is not about comfort and relaxation but it is a very challenging one and therefore one needs to be on their toes all the time. The job requires you to get out of your comfort zone and face the problems. Therefore one must be always willing to face them boldly.

2. A journalist has to work with their team members and not individually. Therefore they must be motivated to work with other people and help their team mates in order to provide their valuable contribution. The journalist role is so much about the team work that they need to be extremely good at it otherwise they cannot succeed.

3. As a journalist one has to be enthusiastic about the facts and figures and should always be willing to dig in to the details of an issue. He or she has to be investigative in nature. The more analysis that goes behind a particular story the better it becomes and therefore the role of research is extremely important in their work.

4. The journalists have to be really careful about the time. Time is an important deciding factor in the news or stories. The journalists have to cover the stories at the earliest. They cannot afford to cause any delay that will affect the whole coverage and hence the news agency's reputation.

5. The journalists have to be responsible and should be able to tackle the difficult situations. They should not require any external motivation but must be willing to work with great effort an energy. The job requires a lot of effort and commitment in the day to day work.

6. The journalists should be able to bring the fresh stories in. Therefore they should be keen enough to look for something new all the time. That is what differentiates the good journalists from the average ones. They need to find the right stories and bring it to the public.
