If you are interested in media research jobs, look no further!

If you have always thought that you might like to be involved in the media, but wouldn't like all the attention that comes with being on the very front line in the public gaze, then you might be interested in considering media research jobs instead. Today we're going to take a look at what you can expect from working in this field.

Before any kind of TV show, news report, magazine article or radio programme makes it to the public there is a huge amount of work that needs to be done in order to ensure that everything is as accurate and up to date as possible. This is the main responsibility of those employed in media research jobs.

Before you decide that this is the right career path for you, it's important to be aware of the qualifications that are necessary in order to get started in the industry. For the most part, you're going to need to have at least a bachelors degree in a relevant subject such as journalism, communications, English, politics or public relations.

If you meet these requirements, then you'll also need to be able to display a strong aptitude for research, excellent attention to detail, top class communication skills (both verbal and written), the ability to work in a team and excellent time management skills. The ability to work to tight deadlines is essential in the media, so you need to be able for that kind of pressure.

Your job will involve researching a whole host of topics relevant to any given story. For example, you may be required to authenticate quotes for an article, double check facts and figures and get in touch with anyone referenced in the story to ensure that what is being printed is as accurate as possible.

They may not have the same level of attractiveness as the more mainstream media positions, but media research jobs play a hugely important role in the operations of every kind of modern media. If you have always wanted to play a part in the flow of information, then it may well be worth a look. And with wages that start off at around £23,000 per year and go as high as £60,000 per year depending on experience and employer, there's no reason to feel that you're accepting second best!
