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.
