May 11, 2007, Newsletter Issue #110: Interviewing options

Tip of the Week

The best way to interview is in person. You can audiotape, get a sense of the person in their natural environment, and interact with them on a more relaxed level. However, for the shy or time-pressed, phone interviews are often a good answer. YouŽll need to prepare just as if you were meeting your source in person, even though you donŽt have to change out of your pajamas.

Email sources can be an option as well, if youŽre having trouble landing a meeting with the source. I personally like to save it for follow up questions, but if you donŽt need extensive information it can be a quick way to get some questions answered.
