If you’re one of the thousands of people who get their start in tech journalism by way of an internship, it’s a real shame that the industry is so devoid of the most important skills required to be successful.
The following are 10 tips that we’ve compiled to help you become a tech reporter without ever working in the industry.1.
You have to be yourself.
A lot of people are intimidated by the idea of working for a large company and they want to sound confident and self-assured.
But you’re not alone.
As soon as you get into a room, you will encounter people who are intimidated and are afraid to speak up.2.
Don’t give up.
If you’ve never worked in a large, established tech company, you have to learn to give up on the idea that you can just work for free.
There is a reason for that.
A big company is a big place, and once you’re in, you need to be there.
You need to learn how to keep the company afloat, which requires a great deal of energy.
If your boss or HR person says, “I’m sorry, we can’t offer you a salary, but we’ll keep you in the office for a day,” you will think, “Ok, I’ll do it, I’m going to be an HR person, so I’ll get paid.”3.
Get your head out of the game.
As a journalist, you can never take the easy way out.
No one wants to work for someone who doesn’t want to work, or isn’t interested in working.
There are a lot of great interviews available online, but they all need to give you something in return.
When you interview, you are being paid to talk.
It’s important that you give people a chance to be genuine and to get to know the person who you’re interviewing.4.
Find a team.
You can’t be a journalist if you don’t have a team, and you can’t do a job as a journalist without a team to help guide you through the process.
A great startup is a team of five or six people, but a good news source is a community of 10 or more.
A good news organization has a team that knows the people who will be doing your job and who will also be the source of stories.5.
Don and I have been journalists for a long time, and we have found that our passion is often what gets us the best interviews.
We can all agree that there are a few things you can do to make your interviews more engaging and personal.
But if you want to be in a position to write great stories, then your job is to show people you’re passionate about what you do.6.
Ask for feedback.
You’re not just an intern when you’re making your first story.
You are an employee.
So if you’re a young intern or a young journalist who is struggling to find a good team, it will be your job to get your team’s feedback on your story and on your process.7.
If it’s not your first time working in a tech newsroom, you’ll get used to a lot.
But don’t feel bad if you get a few questions in about the process, the process itself, and the technology you use.
If people don’t want the answer, you shouldn’t be asking them.
That’s not journalism, that’s business.8.
When a reporter interviews a person, they want the opportunity to be able to get their questions answered.
They don’t expect to be asked a lot, but if they ask questions and the person is not open, that person will be treated like they’re a jerk.
And when you interview a person who’s not open and doesn’t know how to answer your questions, you’re also asking a lot from them.
And if they don’t answer your question, it means you didn’t take the time to listen to what they have to say.9.
If a journalist asks a question, he or she can say, “Here, I’d like to ask you some questions.”
Or, they can ask, “Is there a particular part of the article you’re interested in?”
But the most common question you get is, “Do you know if we should include a disclaimer?”
The answer is yes, but only if it’s written in a way that makes the statement clear.10.
A few years ago, I got a job in tech at a large technology news outlet, and one day I was working on a story on how Amazon was using artificial intelligence to target ads to people who bought books.
I started to think about how we should do that.
We should use a technology that makes it easy for a customer to buy a book and then find a review of the book that’s
