Experience with video, audio and photography is always a plus for job candidates, says Jane Hirt, managing editor of the Chicago Tribune. Hirt does recruiting and hiring for many of the jobs in the Tribune newsroom. Social media fluency is a requirement no matter the platform, she says. The level of fluency candidates need to show in other areas depends on the job. "Is it required for a reporting candidate to have video experience? No," Hirt says. "Is it useful and a bonus? Yes."
