Preparing for Your Interview Sessions
As you embark on this meaningful journey of sharing your life stories, we want to ensure you feel confident, comfortable, and well-prepared for your interview sessions.
So, here are some tips to help you make the most of this experience:
- Explore Photo Albums: Stroll down memory lane by perusing your photo albums or digital photo libraries. Photographs can be powerful triggers for your stories and memories.
- Create a Timeline: Write a simple timeline of your significant life events, milestones, and memorable moments. This will be a helpful reference during the interviews.
- Write Down Your Family Tree: List family members, friends, and individuals who have played significant roles in your life. Having their names at your fingertips will ensure you remember their stories.
- Read the Interview Questionnaire: Before each interview, we’ll send you a set of thought-provoking questions to guide the conversation. Review these questions in advance to reflect on your responses.
- Stay Hydrated: During your interviews, keep a glass of water within reach.
- Find the Tissues: Emotions often surface during storytelling. Having tissues nearby can be reassuring if you become emotional during the interview.
Remember, there’s no pressure to have everything perfectly organized. Your unique perspective and stories are what truly matter.
Likewise, our experienced interviewer is here to guide you through the process, making it an enjoyable and memorable experience. We can’t wait to capture your life’s beautiful moments.
Camera and Technology Tips
A smooth tech setup ensures your interview experience is enjoyable and visually pleasing. Therefore, here are some tips to make sure you’re ready:
- Camera & Computer Setup: You’ll need a computer with a built-in camera or one mounted on your screen. Make sure it’s in good working condition, and if you’re not familiar with video calls, practice using it beforehand to become comfortable with the camera controls.
- Zoom Software: We’ll send you an invitation with a link to download Zoom for your interview sessions. To ensure a seamless experience, download and install Zoom before your first interview.
- Choosing the Right Space: Select a quiet room with minimal background noise, allowing you to fully concentrate on sharing your stories. To sum up, natural light is ideal. So, position yourself near a window if possible.
- Lighting Tips: Good lighting is essential for a great video. Sit facing the natural light source, which provides soft, even illumination. In addition, avoid strong backlighting or harsh shadows on your face.
- Dress for Success: Wear solid, muted colors when on camera. Avoid busy patterns, bright colors, or overly reflective jewelry, as these can be distracting on video. That is to say, simple, classic attire often works best.
- Background Matters: Check your background to ensure it’s neat and visually appealing. Remove any clutter or personal items you’d prefer not to share on camera. A clean, unobtrusive background will keep the focus on your stories.
