Interviewing is one the most important tools for journalists. It is the way you receive the information for stories, depending on what the story is about.

Embrace the digital age. “Online tools can help journalists find interviewees, record notes and review them.” Stay calm and remain courteous if you encounter a interviewee that is hard to deal with. You may come across someone that is tough or hostile. Go over your notes before putting away your notebook for a break. If not, you might be able to understand what some of the jumbled notes are later on.

Your reputation is important. Any veteran subject might ask you about yourself and your methods. The best interviewees are those that are eager to learn about others that they meet and those that are curious about the things around them. It is important that you are enthusiastic as well because you need to show that you believe in the purpose of the interview.
