Conducting Great Interviews

  1. Do not immediately jump to questions focusing on the topic at hand.
  2. Coax, don't hammer. There will be times that the interviewee will have a hard time answering some questions.
  3. Make some questions open ended.
  4. Ask what you don't know.
  5. Let the interviewees wander a bit, but always be in control.

  9. Try not to ask a question that your subject has already answered. It discloses that you really weren't listening after all.
