“Your strength as an interviewer is that you listen to what your interview subject is actually saying. You may come into the room with questions to ask but you listen to what the interview subject says and you pick up on that and your line of question may go into a complete different direction. That is very appreciated. When you are an interview subject and you understand that someone is actually listening to what you are saying as opposed to ticking off questions in your head that is a nice feeling. “ Ron Waksman, Global News: Director – Online News, Current Affairs, Editorial Standards & Practices
