Pick up the phone

By Céline 10 October 2013 - Categorie: Tips

Interviews are still a practical way to get information. You have identified an expert on Twitter or found on through a research paper… why not pick up the phone?

 To get a good response rate…

  • Know what’s the information you need to gather.
  • Prepare your questions. Open questions will get you more information.
  • Tell the person you are asking for help, how long the interview will take and how many questions you have.
  • Ask for references or other sources of information.

More importantly, politeness is your best passport to a great interview.
