Business Tip: One More Thing Not to Do in an Interview!


Here’s an addition to my post of 5/24/10 “What Not to Do in an Interview!”

Don’t forget to show up to your interview with a reporter entirely or show up late and remind the reporter that you have another appointment so “We’ll have to keep it short.” Not only does that imply to them that someone else’s time is more valuable than theirs, it’s the ultimate in rudeness, especially if you don’t offer a legitimate explanation, a really good excuse, or a profuse apology.

Keep in mind that giving a reporter a negative first impression of you could potentially have an impact on the story they write, no matter how objective they try to be.
