Seven Easy Steps to a Great Interview

 

STEPS 1-5

 

1.   Your interview with Edward Zellem will be conducted primarily by e-mail.  The goal is to keep it fun and create a great product to promote you and your work.

 

2.   To begin, please provide one or more of the following:

  • A short personal biography;

  • Resume or CV;

  • Links to your webpage and/or Facebook page;

  • Links to previous media stories about you;

  • or other basic information about yourself.

  • This will help us create 6-8 personalized written questions for your interview.

 

3.   We will send you an Interview Worksheet (click here for sample)

  • Includes 6-8 interview questions and basic instructions.

 

4.   Please provide at least 6 photos to publish with your interview.

PHOTO TIPS:

  • Include captions if appropriate.

  • One photo should be a portrait or other "head shot" for the lead paragraph in your interview.

  • Action shots help get readers interested.

  • Sending us more photos is better - gives us more good choices for your interview.  (We don't have to use them all.)  

  • More photos tend to make a more popular interview.

    • Note:  You must have the rights to republish all photos or be able to obtain rights from the owner.

 

5.   Answer the questions on your Worksheet in 1-3 paragraphs each and return it along with your photos
