Ad Lib Questions

No matter what my plans, in my best interviews, I never follow them completely. Good interviews move around considerably, include digressions (often loaded with information that circles back and becomes useful), and are refreshingly predictable. So I also plan for both new and follow-up questions as part of my interview. By planning to ad lib I'm not tied to my script and can follow a new lead wherever it seems most fruitful: "What exactly do you mean by that?""Could you expand on that just a bit more?" "What else should I know?" Remember, it's the prepared questions that help you identify when it's time for the other kind!
