Picture This You are preparing for an interview. You have been through all the technical information related to your field. You have researched the company’s background. You have even brushed up on your general knowledge. So, are you thoroughly prepared to face the interview panel?
What about keeping a check on your Non-Verbal Communication?
Things to Know Your interview begins even before you say your first word As the interviewer walks toward you to shake hands, an opinion is already being formed As you wait to answer questions you've prepared for, you are being judged on your appearance, posture and smile
Maintain eye contact with the interviewer Avoid constantly looking around the room while you are conversing with the interviewer Looking around can convey nervousness or a lack of confidence in what is being discussed. Eye contact – confidence, is the only aspect of your interview apart from what you say and write that you can be assessed on
Fidgeting is a clear sign of restlessness You don’t want to come across as restless in any interview It is very annoying for interviewers to see candidates playing with their hair, clicking pen tops, tapping feet or unconsciously touching parts of the body.
Preparing what you have to say is important, but practicing how you will say it is imperative. The nonverbal message can speak louder than the verbal message you're sending. 65% of all information in speech is not in the words but in non-verbal communication The same thing holds for 90% of all ‘emotional’ information.
