Body Language By using words you can answer to and address the queries of the panel members. At the same time however, your body language (gesture, e, hand movements, eye contact & tone) will also give out a lot more Based on your body language it can be seen if you come across as insecure or self-assured. It can also show if you are a busy or a quiet type and it helps give an impression of whether you are speaking truthfully or not. Body language can show if you not prone to stress. It can show how enthusiastic you are and if you are a nice person, someone who will take his work serious, but also someone who has a sense of humor.
Body Language The panel members will ask you questions, but your answers won't only be oral. The interviewers will not only pay attention to what you say, but also to how you say it! Everybody uses body language, but it takes place mostly at a subconscious level. Through becoming more aware of your own body language & also through recognizing the body language of others, you can definitely increase your chances of getting selected
During the Interview DON'T - Rub the back of your head or neck. Even if you really do just have a cramp in your neck, these gestures make you look disinterested. Rub or touch your nose. This suggests that you're not being completely honest, and it's gross. Sit with your arms folded across your chest. You'll appear unfriendly and disengaged Cross your legs and idly shake one over the other. It's distracting and shows how uncomfortable you are.
During the Interview DON'T Lean your body towards the door. You'll appear ready to make a mad dash for the door Slouch back in your seat. This will make you appear disinterested and unprepared. Stare back blankly. This is a look people naturally adapt when they are trying to distance themselves.
During the Interview Do: Sit up straight, and lean slightly forward in your chair. In addition to projecting interest and engagement in the interaction, aligning your body's position to that of the interviewer's shows admiration and agreement. Establish a comfortable amount of personal space between you and the interviewer. Invading personal space (anything more than 20 inches) could make the interviewer feel uncomfortable and take the focus away from your conversation. Limit your application of colognes and perfumes. Invading aromas can arouse allergies. Being the candidate that gave the interviewer a headache isn't going to do anything in your favor.
During the Interview Do: - Show your enthusiasm by keeping an interested expression. Nod and make positive gestures in moderation to avoid looking like a bobble head. - If you have more than one person interviewing you at once, make sure you briefly address both people with your gaze (without looking like a tennis spectator) and return your attention to the person who has asked you a question. Interruptions can happen. If they do, refrain from staring at your interviewer while they address their immediate business and motion your willingness to leave if they need privacy. aStand up and smile even if you are on a phone interview. Standing increases your level of alertness and allows you to become more engaged in the conversation. Say Goodbye Gracefully..
