Body Language In Interviews


									Do not get bored reading the various tips on what to be prepared when
facing a job interview. In addition to the letter of graduation and the
various experiences you have, there are many other considerations noted
by the interviewer to get you as their employee. One of the important
considerations is your body language. Yup, body language became one of
the keys to your success.

Nervous and anxious, for some people is a natural thing at the time of
the interview. But to vent their nervousness and anxiety in the form of
scratching my head will lower your chances of escape. What’s more body
language that makes you look a minus, for example, shaking a leg or foot
stomping sound tight. Most likely your resume will end up in the

Based on a study conducted, interviewers often ask us a request to tell
prospective employees for 10 minutes. In that time, the interviewer is
actually not really listening to what you tell me, because 85% which they
consider is your body language. They will assess the sound pressure, the
way you sit, where you put the hand, and your facial expressions.

Thus, the body language of a thing you should look as much as, even more
than the clothes you wear or how your hair. Greg Hartley, a body language
expert with over 20 years experience and many times the interrogation
team for the United States armed forces to share tips on body language is
good for you.

1. Show Kindness and Your Smile

When you meet with a team that will interview you, give the best smile
you can give, their handshake with a confident (not weak nor too strong).
Even if you are nervous, smile will make you more relaxed. Give greetings
to them, such as “Nice to meet you all,” to show that you be polite and
enthusiastic about the interview. Remember, smile! Not to laugh or
“giggle” but nothing is funny (really funny though, hold your thunderous

2. Keep Eye Contact

With a sense of nervousness that comes, not necessarily the views you may
continue to toe staring at you during the interview. Eye contact is a
valuation by 60%. Do not be tempted to glance at the decor or anything
that could distract your eye contact. Focus on the triangular face
(eyebrows, nose, lips) the person who interviewed you. It is not good if
you answer their questions but your eyeballs walk around staring at what
is happening outside the window.

3. Avoid Touching Face

The interviewer will also assess how you adapt during the interview. It
would be better if you are nervous initially, but gradually became more
relaxed and answer questions confidently. Even if you are still nervous
during the interview, avoid touching your face, being it nose, mouth or
neck. Why? Because the interviewer will assume you’re hiding the truth
(lie). Although not always so, avoid touching your face during the

4. Fingers and Your Hands Say Who

Not just your face and your lips will be noted that the interviewer, the
position of finger and hand you say who you are more than you imagine.
Both fingers clasped each other showing you a private person. Thumb rests
on another show you should always be convinced before doing anything. The
best position is to put your hand on a table with an open. You will imply
the self-confident and open. Even if you are confident and not nervous,
do not ever cross your arms in front of the interviewer! That attitude
will make you seem arrogant, bored and not interested in the interview.

5. Body Posture

Your posture is also a valuation during the interview, not how your
height, but on how you position. By the time you sit down, pull your
shoulders slightly back and make an upright position on your back. That
position will make you look strong and confident without overdoing it. In
addition, the position will make your breathing more regularly and help
you overcome the anxiety that comes when the interview took place.

For better results, it would be better if you practice how to sit up well
and put a hand on the table so as not to seem stiff. Enjoy your
interview; keep smiling and success to you!
