Purpose of an Interview

Purpose of a Video Interview

When most people think of an interview, they think of a talk-show interview where the person is selling something.  But there are interviews during which a person actually educates and, if they’re really good, entertains.

Dave Isay takes a different viewpoint |

“The interview itself is the purpose of the work [not the story].”

  1. Ask the big life questions.
  2. Pour your attention into the interview.
  3. Be an active participant in the conversation.
  4. Remember it’s not the “story” that matters.
  5. Say thank you.

Do you agree?
