Interview Body Language

1. Top 10 interview questions and answers 2017

2. Top 14 tips to prepare job interviews
During an interview, body language reveals important insights about who you are; you don't even have to open up your mouth for a prospective employer to make a first impression judgment about your personality or temperament. Make sure that the hours you have spent preparing your resume and landing the interview aren't blown by bad body language. Stay away from these all-to-common mistakes in body language.

Crossed arms. When you fold up your arms across the front of your body, you are sending the signal that you are unapproachable and closed off to personal relationships - not good in a customer-driven world. Employers typically want to hire friendly, charismatic people who will assimilate well into a team environment. To avoid the unconscious habit of crossing your arms, set them on your lap or the table - even holding your resume or a pen to keep a relaxed appearance.

Wild gesturing. Talking with your hands isn't all bad. In fact, gesticulating can show your audience that you are an outgoing and enthusiastic person. However, in an interview setting hand and arm movements should be toned down to match the mood of the interviewer. If the interviewer is exceptionally bubbly and waives his arms about, it is appropriate to mirror his actions; but if the interviewer is more reserved, keep your gesticulating confined closer to your body.

Chair slouching. Leaning all the way back in a chair conveys disinterest in the goings-on around you. Just imaging a teenager, kicked back in a chair seemingly not paying attention to the matters at hand - you wouldn't want to hire him at all! The best body position for an interview is to sit upright (although not too straight, or you'll look tense) and lean ever-so slightly forward to show that you have interest in what the interviewing is explaining.

Face touching. Stay away from rubbing your nose, swiping at your eyes, playing with your hair. At a minimum, these minor fidgets will make you come off as anxious and nervous. Although it is not necessarily true, some employers believe that touching your face during an interview means that you are not telling the truth. Avoid any impulse to touch your face during an interview by keeping your hands busy by holding your resumes, taking notes on a pad of paper or casually interlocking your fingers together on your lap.
