• Follow up questions are always more valuable then the pre written questions then you have previously come up with.
  • Learning something new in the interview
  • Always have those 10 questions, then where possible DON’T GIVE THEM A LIST OF QUESTIONS, put those questions into points/subjects if they insist on pre reading questions. Then in a live interview you can turn those points into structured questions.
  • When they seem excited about an area (MAKE A NOTE DON’T LET THEM GIVE IT ALL BEFORE YOU’RE ON MARK)
  • Eye contact
  • Non-verbal gestures
  • Time – Keep and eye on the time, for example if you only require 5min, don’t interview someone for more then twice the amount of time (so no more then 10min)! You need to remember that you have to edit this!
  • Avoid double barrel questions – Try not to overload the person with questions
  • Listen to the answers
  • Ask them what they mean, if you don’t know.
  • Don’t repeat the answer in your own words
  • Tone gives the impression that the interview has come to the end
