I’m taking news reporting this semester. Its a requirement for my major, graphic design, and it counts as a certified writing class, which is required for The Core (dun dun). Anyway, in chapter two, there is a quiz you’re supposed to take, called ‘Got what it takes to be a reporter?’ While this does not sound nearly as fun as fluff magazine quizzes (ex: ‘Is your BFF really on your side?’ ‘What’s your seduction style?’ lol), I took it anyway.
Here are the possible results:
30 points: Congratulations! You were destined to be a journalist. (Or else you lied, which is a heinous things for a reporter to do).
25-30 points: You’re a solid contender for a successful journalism career. You’ve got the personality and ability a good reporter needs.
20-25 points: Journalism is a good fit for you, mostly–but it may require you to change your attitude or improve some skills.
Less than 20 points: Think we’re grading too harshly? Well, there’s a good chance you just won’t be happy working in a newsroom.
Anyone want to know how many points I got? …18.
Hah. Thank you quiz for telling me what I already knew.
