Interviewing Excellence 1. INTERVIEWING IS AN “ART” WORTH MASTERING! (Think Christiane Amanpour, Mike Wallace) 2. Don’t overschedule—2 or 3 in depth interviews are a solid day’s work. (More than that is lunacy and will lead to shallow results.) 3. Save, if possible, the “Big Guy”/Gal until last—that is, until you know what the hell you’re doing! 4. Find a comfy/“safe”/neutral setting. THIS IS ALL IMPORTANT! (Worst case: You on the other side of his/her desk.) 5. Start with a little bit (LITTLE) of local small talk. But get some tips on the interviewee ahead of time; he may be one of the “brusque ones” who considers any small talk a waste of his Imperial Time. 6. DO YOUR DAMN HOME WORK! (On the interviewee, the subject matter.) 7. Concoct a … LONG LIST … of questions. (You’ll only use 10% of it, but that’s okay.)
