This is part 2 of 4.

 

Let’s jump in here.

Ask questions 

When you’re going for an interview you need to make sure that you’re prepared with engaging questions to make it look like you want the job.  Try to prepare stuff like:

  • What are the opportunities for promotion?
  • How can I implement new innovation?
  • What are the multi-agency working opportunities? 
  • When will I be notified if I’m successful,
  • How will I be notified, 
  • When does this role start 
  • Is there going to be a chance of a handover with the person leave him
  • How many people will I be working with 
  • What training is offered 
  • What floor will I be located on 
  • What are the company benefits 
  • What’s the dress code what are the hours 
  • What are the times for x?

 

As you can see the list goes on and on the list goes on and on and on as you see.

  • Thank you note

 

Send a handwritten thank you note or card to the person who interviewed you. Make sure you’re nice you speak and encouraging to everyone.  Leave a good impression the moment you come in and when you leave because the interviewer may even go and ask the person who’s bringing you into the interview room.  So you don’t want to shoot yourself in the foot just by being rude to someone.

  • Your mood or personality 

 

If you are feeling sad,down or tearful… these vibes can come through your voice. So you might need to give yourself a pep talk to get livo and do star jumps or something so you can be at your most hyper energy. 

 

 

 

  • Flaunt your storytelling skills

 

Engage your listeners with great relatable stories , what you learnt or what you will start or stop doing since the experiment

  • Relax

 

Free flow and sound like you are talking to your friends and family.

 

A great speaker doesn’t memorise their speech or constantly think about what they’re going to say next. They’re paying attention to the audience. They’re feeling themselves in the moment. They are completely focused on the task at hand.

  • Know your stuff with passion or when you don’t know say it too

 

So obviously you have a huge following because you know your stuff, got passion for it and keep it real.

 

 

  • Use a shield to reduce plosives

 

There is no way around it the Ps or Bs are always going to hit the mic hard. A way to reduce this is to use a mic shield, drink water to lubricate your mouth and when you are saying words like please,  boss, pleasant etc move your mouth slightly off the mic to reduce the plosive impact.

 

You can do it.

This is part one of my 10 tips on how to improve your podcasting skills  so that people listen to what you say rather than just all of the mistakes or how you’re saying it wrong this is part 1 of 2 podcasting tips.  I left the links below to catch up on what you might have missed. 

 

Shout out to all the podcasts keeping us  educated, faithfully strong, learning lots,  laughing on the commute to work, hitting that morning run or doing the cleaning on a Saturday morning. 

 

The choice is huge for listeners right now , everyone has a podcast now,  it is more unusual when people do not have a pod.

Ok so some tips if you are a podcaster or thinking of starting one. Let me give you some tips to keep your listeners tuned in rather than turned off by your voice.

 

Tips

 

  • Slow down when speaking 

 

The way you speak to your friends,  family or over the phone can often be much faster than the speed for a podcast. 

Slow down, let the listeners enjoy what you say and how you say. 

 

 

  • Use defined pauses to create interests,  or a powerful point 

 

Now don’t feel pressured to fill all the talking time with talking yaaaaaay. The silences can often speak more than your words.

  • How loud do your speak

 

Your voice volume is key to your audience listening and staying to listen to the whole podcast.

 

  1. Do you sound interesting  …have you got rhythm to your voice. 

 

 

  • What is the breathing like

 

 Your breathing controls how you sound. Have you ever tried talking while running fast out on the treadmill or after you walked up 4 flights of stairs. Sound breathy right, control your breathing so you can sound energetic through the whole talk.
