You need to learn the following things as a fresher so that you can get the jo of a journalist:


1. You need to have very good research skills. You should be able to do the investigation really well so that you can dig in to the facts, collect the information do your research and come out with the data and information that no one has ever come up before. This makes the story very intriguing and therefore will help you a lot in building the reputation as a journalist.

2. As a journalist you should be really good with your analysis. The kind of analysis that you use, ultimately determines the results that you derive from the information that you have fetched. Therefore you should be able to do the analysis right. The logic and right interpretation of facts is very important. Because every one will have the access to the facts and information, what makes your story more compelling than the others is how you use those facts to derive conclusions in your story and therefore more interesting one. Thus you really need to sharpen this skill.
