Below is the list of the skills that are essential for the role of a Video Jockey:

1. The most important skill for the role of a Video Jockey is to know how to express yourself in front of the camera. A number of people make mistakes again and again. It takes years to become a perfectionist at it. This skill is learnt through gradual practice and therefore should be learnt with great amounts of patience.

2. The other important skill for a Video Jockey is to have excellent time management skills. They should know how to plan and divide their time among various tasks and activities in order to be more efficient and productive. Remember time wastage could be the biggest mistake in this profession and you can never afford to do that.

3. Video Jockeys need to have extra ordinary communication skills. They have to be right on the target while having the conversations, shooting or the interviews. The excellent communication skills help them to be more impressive and productive in their work. Therefore the are very much required.

4. Another important skill for Video Jockeys is to have the team management skills. The role of a Video Jockey is to work with the crew and the director in order to produce the quality show for the television. It is therefore important on their part that they learn to get along with people nicely and maintain healthy relationships with everyone. Also they should be supportive enough to everyone and help everyone around while required.

5. Video Jockeys should be able to deal with the pressure situations and tight deadlines. There are many circumstances when they are required to shoot a number of episodes at one go and in that case they will have to stretch themselves for the long hours of work and stay excited about their work. One cannot afford to look tired in front of the camera. That is the first rule. They have to learn that and practice it too.
