Chances are that, at some point in your career, you’re going to need to interview people.
A little tip that I have for you today: you want to respect your guest’s time.
I have been hosting podcasts and conducting over 350 interviews or so now and something I’ve absolutely learned is to respect your guest’s time.
Start on time. End early.
Before you start, clarify the stop time, and make sure the guest doesn’t have anything scheduled immediately after you. If they do, pay attention to that. Try to stop early so they have enough time to transition.
If you do need to go over, make sure to check first. That type of stuff goes a long way.
