Body Language Tips for Acing a Job Interview
Do you think your body language is keeping you from nailing those job interviews? Body language expert Janine Driver critiques a job applicant and then explains the six steps to impress potential employers.
P - Praise. Find something nice about your interviewer -- compliment their jewelry or some aspect of the company.
R - Rapport. Find a commonality with your interviewer -- what do you both have in common? It establishes likability.
A - Attitude and confidence level. "That's a big thing that Julianne was lacking in her interviews," says Janine. "It was obvious she didn't do her research, which sends the message that she really didn't want those jobs, because if she did, her attitude and confidence would have skyrocketed."
I - Informing. Do research about the company and find out a fun fact that will impress your interviewer.
S - Shaking hands. It almost seems overly simplistic, but it can send the message that either you're confident or you have low self-esteem.
E - Eye contact. Maintain your viewpoint in the upside-down triangle of the interviewer's face (between the eyes and nose), and keep eye contact levels around 70 percent -- any more and you are staring which is uncomfortable.
