The Art of the Interview

The Art of the Interview

by Tania Ketenjian


Tania Ketenjian has worked as a journalist for almost 20 years, creating documentaries, podcasts, and public art projects. Simply put, she's executed a lot of interviews. In this course, Ketenjian emphasizes a simple misconception about interviews — that they should be treated as everyday conversations. It's common for many interviewers to become stressed about an interview or become starstruck by who they're talking with. However, the simple truth is, if you've done the research, you're ready to go.

By covering everything from correct preparation, finding the right conversational flow, and perfecting tricky interview etiquette, Ketenjian has made this course to help budding interviewers approach these discussions with confidence and ease.

The same chance, and magic, and openness, and curiosity, and instinctual things that happen in great art — also happen in an interview.
