Interviews are always nerve racking however, your body language is just as important as what you say when being interviewed. Here are our Top 6 Non-Verbal Interview Tips:
1) Dress to Impress.
Always dress smartly, it makes you look professional and prepared for the job. First impressions count!
2) Do not be late and know where you are going
Plan your route ahead of time and leave enough time to find somewhere to park, be at your interview five minutes before it starts.
3) Understand what the company does.
Research the company solidly before hand. If you don’t know about the company, facial expressions can soon make this clear to your interviewer.
4) Make eye contact.
Eye contact makes you seem confident, honest, interested and lets be honest, its rude not to.
It’s your first impression so make it a good one. Smiling shows confidence, breaks tension and remember, it’s easier to recover from a mistake with a smile.
5) Avoid making too many hand gestures.
Rest your arms on the table or chair arm. Placing your hands on your knees is also a good way to stop you fiddling or waving your arms around.
6) Think about your posture.
Slouching makes you look nervous or arrogant. Relax and sit up straight to make you look interested and comfortable.
GOOD LUCK IN YOUR INTERVIEW
