The key to a successful interview is very simple. Preparation. Using a good friend, a parent, a pageant coach or even a VCR……you should practice, practice, practice until it feels natural. I have seen so many contestants go in unprepared and it is a recipe for disaster. You have only a few minutes in front of the judges to make your self stand out. I will refer to one of my favorite quotes ……the harder I work……the luckier I get.” What do judges look for in the interview.
Remember, a judging panel is made up of a group of individuals. Each individual has his or her own opinion of what is important. Most qualified pageant judges are looking for a contestant that presents herself in a natural, positive manner and is able to “think on her feet”. A judge can always tell when you are not being yourself. Always be prepared. The great secret of success is to be ready when an opportunity comes. And last, but not least, a good sense of humor never hurts.
