Congratulations! Your well-written resume and achievements have earned you an invitation from your dream company. Now, all you need to do is prove that you’re worthy of the final interview, and eventually, of being hired. One of the ways you can do that is by letting your actions speak for themselves.
Jumpstart Your Career gives out a few tips on how you can impress your potential employer through nonverbal cues.
1. Maintain eye contact, but never stare.
Follow the 10-second rule: While being asked or answering a question, maintain eye contact and break it off from time to time to look at your notes or to give yourself a breather.
2. Be interactive.
Nodding, smiling, and having a look of interest are great add-ons to your perfect posture. It makes you look like you’re giving the interviewer or interviewers your full attention and focus.
3. Keep your face hands-free.
Leaning your head on your palm is too cutesy for a job interview, so this is a big no-no. Touching your nose or lips gives off a vibe that you might be lying, and it’s also not very hygienic.
