First, read up on the newspaper, so you have a familiarity with its content, readership, and its history and editor staff. This will also help best choose which writing or photo pieces to bring with you to the interview for samples to show. Second, make sure to supply samples of your applicable work to show. It will give them an idea what department might be a good fit for you. Third, arrive ahead of schedule. The leadership is always busy. You might get in to see them early, but you'll only have so much time to chat. Likely, you may or may not have their full attention, depending on the type of day activities. Finally, always talk in terms of the job you want, mentioning when you've had to be quick on your feet or problem solve when something had to be changed last second or done quickly.
