Body Language On The Interview
Body language is a form a non-verbal communication. Many interviews fail because of ineffective nonverbal communication. Here’s what you need to watch out for:
- Facial Expressions. Before you head to the interview, take a good, long, hard look at yourself in the mirror. Examine how your face looks when it is “at rest.” Sullen, confused, or even mildly hysterical expressions don’t exactly inspire confidence. Don’t forget to add a smile! A genuine smile lets the interviewer know that you are happy to be there.
- Posture. Stand tall, walk tall, and most of all, sit tall. Posture signals confidence.
- Gestures. Don’t use artificial gestures to try to heighten the importance of a topic during the interview. When you do use gestures, make sure they are natural and meaningful.
