Specific styles of journalism
The style is direct and precise with a focus on reporting facts, events, and information in an unbiased manner. The story can be for print, broadcast and online news.
The style includes reports and articles for all types of periodicals, but fashion and celebrity features are the most popular with magazines. The story is much more conversational.
The style is detail-oriented and factual with a focus on reporting statistics related to a sporting event. Also, the style includes interviews with celebrity sport-stars.
The style is nonprofessional reporting in which everyday people can contribute information and/or report on news events by using blogs, websites, media posts, YouTube, and other online formats.
The style presents news stories through the use of pictures and images.
Focus on career highlights as opposed to a “life story,” and add a professional summary as opposed to an objective statement. In journalism, experience trumps education, so make related experience the focal point of your document. If you have ever impressed anyone in the media/broadcasting business, list them as references (typically included at the bottom of the resume). Potential supervisors would rather hear from someone in the business than someone who is not.
