Audio Interview…

In Uncategorized on February 3, 2009 at 6:27 am

My audio interview was a failure.  I made the gigantic mistake of not asking for the name of the person I was interviewing.  So the audio starts with a man describing what he does, but the listener has no idea who the person is.  I have learned what a huge mistake this was.  This assignment was a challenge for me because the person I interviewed seemed nervous about the audio recorder, and talked unclearly and offered very little detail answering my questions.  I asked him to repeat himself many times, but I could not repair all the “likes” and “um’s” in his speech.  I have learned that preparation for audio interviews is huge, and to make the audio recording device seem unimportant to help the subject relax.  However, I thought the sound quality of my interview was good, and  I didn’t have much trouble using the software.
