Tips on interviewing

  • make eye contact
  • grin
  • unbutton your jacket (a sociologist says this signals openness)
  • shift in your seat
  • ask an easy question
  • develop a capacity to settle people
  • be old enough to flirt with beautiful women, and young enough for them not to terrify you (30s).
  • confidence
  • timing
  • don't be afraid of silences, let the guest fall into their own rhythm of response
  • listen
  • be curious
  • to prepare ask yourself "Why am I interviewing this person?" (goal)
  • research
