5 BODY LANGUAGE INTERVIEW BLUNDERS

Looking lazy or aggressive

Do not lean back – you will look lazy. Do not lean forward- you will look aggressive. Just sit naturally – straight -you will look alert and comfortable. Also do not cross your arms. This shows defensiveness — like you are holding yourself back.

Avoiding eye contact

Look calmly at the interviewer during the conversation. Do not stare or look away while speaking. Understand that you can say a lot through eyes too.

Constant nodding

Do not be in the habit of nodding and agreeing to everything the interviewer says. This shows you are more of a ‘yes’ person.

Weak handshakes

There is nothing worse than a weak handshake to start off or end an interview. A firm handshake is a sign of authority and confidence.

Looking at the clock

Some interviews can drag on for a long time. Still, if you want to have the job, avoid peeking at the wrist watch or the wall clock while you are in the middle of a conversation with the interviewer.
