Don’t get us wrong, it’s great to be prepared, but we see many people showing up with full pages of scripting and notes, and it can really mess with the natural energy of an interview.
We recommend having a general idea in mind of talking points you want to hit and the direction you want to go in. Recruit a friend to run some practice questions by you beforehand. But, unless it’s been decided that this will be a scripted interview, leave the cue cards at home.
2. GET COMFY
A general rule is if you feel uncomfortable in an outfit, you’re going to look uncomfortable on camera. Find a few outfit options you love and maybe even have a little photoshoot to see which one makes you look and feel the most confident and comfortable!
3. Have fun!
Take it easy, and don’t put too much pressure on yourself! Any mistakes can be edited out in post-production, so really, it’s most important for you to relax, have fun, and treat the interview like a conversation.
