Alison,

You make some great points. Here is one more to consider:

7. Using a Cheesy Cell Phone. Nothing enhances your interview image like a partial connection that hisses, pops and drops every third syllable. Instead of this, double-check your coverage, and plan to use a land-line where ever possible. Oh - and just because you can do a phone interview while walking down a busy urban street doesn't mean you should. The honking and traffic noises will interfere with your interview.

Keep up the good work!

Troy
