DO look atrepparttar interviewer when you speak. DON'T look atrepparttar 124501 camera, no matter how greatrepparttar 124502 temptation.

DON'T imbibe before your interview, even if you think a glass of wine would calm your nerves. Alcohol can also redden your face and lower your inhibitions. You are trying to sell your product or service or yourself; makerepparttar 124503 best impression you can.

DON'T advertise. Your interviewer wants good information forrepparttar 124504 station's viewers, not a blatant commercial for your services. If you are likeable and knowledgeable, viewers will look favourably on your product.

DON'T speak in a monotone, but also DON'T try to place artifical-sounding inflections into your voice. Be natural. DO use normal speaking volume. DON'T raise your voice, as if afraidrepparttar 124505 microphone won't pick you up.

DO consider all possible questions you may be asked and DO have appropriate answers ready. DON'T answer questions as if you have memorizedrepparttar 124506 answers. Make your answer, even if it's well rehearsed, sound as if you're saying it forrepparttar 124507 first time. If you need facts and figures, make sure they are well organized so you DON'T have to fumble for them.

If you are being interviewed because of a negative event (say, for instance, your bottled water has tested positive for E.coli contamination), DON'T be belligerent. Be grave, be sympathetic and explain that investigations are under way. DON'T say anything your lawyer can't work with.

DO make sure your microphone is dead before saying anything you wouldn't

want repeated. It may look as ifrepparttar 124508 interview is over,repparttar 124509 camera is off you, but your mike may still be live.

And finally, DO have fun, unlessrepparttar 124510 interview follows a negative occurrence. You'll come across as a personrepparttar 124511 viewers want to know.
