Preparing for Your Engaging Missions Interview

I'm really looking forward to our interview. The tips below will help us prepare to have the best quality audio when you share your stories of God's faithfulness. Here are some general tips that will apply regardless of how we're connecting. I have some more specific tips for computers and mobile devices further down.

  1. Go somewhere quiet. If you can hear noise, it will probably end up in the recording.
  2. Try to stay still. You don't need to be a statue, but you'd be surprised what sounds can come through.
  3. Get your stuff. Have some water and any reference materials or notes handy.
  4. Smile and enjoy yourself. People can hear it in your voice.
  5. Don't worry if something goes wrong. Let's have some fun. We edit the interviews before publication.

Tips When Using a Computer

  • Restart your computer and close any programs you don't need (especially DropBox, Google Drive or automatic backup software).
  • Stay about 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) from your microphone.
  • Use headphones if possible.
  • If you can, use a wired network connection instead of WiFi.
  • Turn off notifications or set to Do Not Disturb (DND).
  • Use an external microphone if possible.
  • Turn off your mobile phone or keep it away from your computer.

Tips for a Phone or Mobile Device

  • Don't use speakerphone.
  • Stay about 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) from your microphone.
  • Use headphones if possible.
  • Turn off notifications or set to Do Not Disturb (DND).
  • Close any apps you don't need.
