Body Language Blunders

  1. 1. Body Language Blunders to Avoid!<br />
  2. 2. As the old saying goes “Actions speak louder than words”<br />The same applies to a job interview.<br />
  3. 3. Here’s a list of Body Language Blunders you should avoid!<br />
  4. 4. 1 – Gesturing wildly<br />Keep your hand gestures within the frame of your body<br />If they go out of your body, it looks like you're out of control<br />Gestures should be small and controlled<br />
  5. 5. 2 – Touching your face<br />Touching your face and fidgeting shows nervousness <br />Conveys the wrong messages<br />Also there’s a myth out there that ‘if you touch your face you're lying!’<br />
  6. 6. 3 – Stiff or Slouching<br />You want to be able to look comfortable but attentive<br />Don’t appear too stiff or slouched<br />Relax a bit so that you don’t look inflexible <br />
  7. 7. 4 – Folding the hands<br />Such a pose makes you looked reserved and very passive<br />Interviewers like to see someone more charismatic<br />Hands should be relaxed on the table or on your lap<br />
  8. 8. 5 – Leaning back<br />Leaning back in your chair shows indifference or disinterest<br />It also conveys you have a relaxed and casual attitude towards the interview<br />Conversely, leaning forward conveys interest <br />
