The Interview
(written by Tracey Lee from onaircoach.net)
I was coaching a female Radio Presenter yesterday and something came up in conversation that I felt is important enough to write about.
Well, here’s what’s worked for a few I’ve already coached.
GETTING THE INTERVIEW:
Always better to call than email. Emails get lost , pushed to the side for later or never.

“Success doesn’t come to you, you go to it.” –Marva Collins

THE INTERVIEW:
Nowadays there are more online interviews for voice-tracking gigs etc.
Interviews can be on Skype Video, over the phone or in person!
First impressions – Body Language. Eye contact , firm handshake.
Don’t appear desperate for the job!

Always the “3C’s”– Cool, Calm and Confident!

Ask Questions to first of all show interest but also to find out about the radio station for yourself! Maybe it might not suit you after all!

“Opportunities don’t often come along. So, when they do, you have to grab them.” –Audrey Hepburn

You are the EXPERT!
You are the only one who can do this.
Not cocky, not reserved.. just ‘sure’!
You’re the person that PD wants!
Ok, ready! YOU got this!! Go for it! Good Luck!
(Oh by the way…the latest example of this happened just this week. My client got the interview and immediately has been asked to submit more of her ideas. THIS WORKS!!!)
