Computers Reporting and Web Design Business
While still in school, I always knew that I wanted to work in computers, reporting, and web design and development. I came to know about this because I always liked telling other people’s stories. I also loved photography. These are some of the primary things that involves computers, web design, arts, and the journalism business. Furthermore, I always excelled in debates; since I have the talent of expressing different points in a simple manner.
However, because of this it was almost obvious that I would choose journalism as a career. I enrolled in a journalism college where I taught more about it. As well as advertising and marketing. I got a job as a reporter even before completing college and that is when I first experienced being in computers as well as the internet.
There are different standards of web development and the media
Nonetheless, I am still involved in field reporting on computers. I go to different places and correct stories. Later, conveyed to the people. Working in the web development business as a career has been both enjoyable and challenging for me. When I am reporting helpful and happy stories on computers, they’re the most enjoyable parts to me. I get to interview as well as speak with different kinds of people some of whom motivates me a lot.
Notwithstanding, the main challenges of working on the media, as well as a field reporter includes; covering sad stories. Sometimes I have to report stories on the computers. Such as disasters, accidents and other similar sad situations. In such situations I am required to have enough inner strength; since I have to cover the stories exactly as they are. Some of these stories sound so touching that I fail get ample sleep after covering them. But while undergoing training I was trained on how to handle such situations. Therefore I am able to handle most of these sad stories in a better manner that a person who is not trained.
What exactly is involved in my line of work?
Be that as it may, we go out as a team to cover the stories. Some of the stories we cover are prepared prior to the precise day we go to the field. Other stories take days to cover. Therefore, they require proper preparation. Emergency stories are required to get into the field within the shortest time possible; to cover events as they happen. This is the main reason why we have to stay prepared at all times. The team we go out with includes me. As well as a number of camera men. I am the one responsible of doing interviews. And guiding the camera men on what to capture.
Nevertheless, while on the field; I am required to cover the different stories, in the most impartial manner as possible. This means that I am not supposed to have an opinion; since I am required to cover the stories just as they are. I am also supposed to report the stories in a professional and responsible manner. This means that I am supposed to ensure the people who get the news are not irritated by some of my comments. As a result, I always choose my words carefully with an objective of ensuring what I report is professional.
In this career I am required to travel regularly
However, this is mainly because I have to go to different locations to cover the different stories. I even get to prepare for journeys that take hours. Sometime I even spend days in different locations. At first it was a bit challenging. This is because I was not used to traveling so much. But with time I have come to enjoy it so much. Especially because I get to meet new people and see different places. The stories I cover are the ones that determine where I travel to.
In my line of work, I have had different types of experiences. With most of them being pleasant experiences. Most people I meet want to get their stories known through web development as well as computers. This is especially while doing interviews; where nice people hope that their stories will be documented. Majority of the people I encounter tend to be very kind and helpful. It is rare, that I find a person who does not want to answer questions.
As a person who naturally love journalism. As well as a person who has been trained; I know how to handle different types of people. Through my work, I have been able to meet great people who have become my friends. I have also been able to meet different important people in the society; including celebrities. Therefore, I can proudly say that by working in computers and web development. I have been able to live my dream. Also, I hope to continue working in this field for many years to come.
