  • So youre off to your job interview.

  • Looking good, hot-shot.

  • It’s not just about having the right gear though.

  • Maintaining good body language will help you secure

  • that job interview and make the right impression,

  • without saying a word.

  • You're not hung-over,

  • youre wearing tidy attire,

  • and you've made the effort to polish your shoes.

  • It's a good start.

  • Your manner and your dress sense certainly say a lot about you,

  • but your body language can still let you down!

  • Here's what you need to know

  • before you walk into that interview room.

  • It’s always difficult greeting someone for the first time.

  • Hmm… a little aggressive.

  • Your interviewer knows you want the job,

  • so don’t astound them with an overconfident gesture.

  • Avoid nose-flicks, high-fives, air-kisses or jazz hands.

  • Play it simple and mirror their handshake

  • grip to avoid dominant vibes.

  • The interviewer will show you to your chair.

  • This is the all-important hot seat,

  • and the way you sit conveys a lot of information.

  • Take a moment to position and get comfortable,

  • but not too comfortable.

  • Look relaxed.

  • It encourages your interviewer

  • to feel at ease in your company.

  • However, no matter how informal the discussion,

  • avoid slouching.

  • Youre not at home watching the telly now!

  • An interview is not the time to come over all shy and retiring.

  • Folding the arms across your chest,

  • or turning the shoulders away conveys a nervous,

  • negative and even aggressive attitude.

  • That’s it.

  • Use your upper torso to define an open and honest attitude.

  • Keep the back straight and

  • tilt slightly forward to demonstrate interest.

  • Children cover their mouths when they're telling lies.

  • As we get older this subconscious habit

  • turns into nose touching,

  • cheek brushing

  • or the tweaking of the tool-shed.

  • If youre stroking the nose,

  • caressing sideburns or chin scratching,

  • these actions can make your interviewer feel suspicious.

  • Right.

  • Avoid touching your face by keeping your hands

  • interlocked or relaxed in your lap.

  • It’s important to concentrate during your interview.

  • Stop constant eye movement or

  • repetitive looks to the floor or ceiling.

  • By moving the eyes around the room you risk looking devious,

  • apprehensive,

  • or just plain bored.

  • Give your interviewer your full attention.

  • LOOK and LISTEN.

  • During the interview,

  • don’t transfer your butterflies into reflexes like fidgeting.

  • Watching your legs perform a neat rendition

  • of Riverdance under the table

  • is one distraction the interviewer doesn’t need.

  • Channel nerves into simple yet elegant hand gestures

  • to endorse what you say.

  • Yes, that’s a nice tie.

  • But obsessive touching, or grooming of your garments,

  • conveys an element of boredom or distrust.

  • Even if you're certain there's a speck on your clothes,

  • leave it alone.

  • No-one else will notice but you.

  • Keep your eye contact true and steady.

  • But remember to blink.

  • An interview can be intense,

  • so avoid adopting a serial-killer stare.

  • Instead, create an imaginary triangle on your interviewer’s face

  • and look within that zone.

  • Try not to drop your gaze below the triangle though.

  • Any further south and things start to get a little intimate.

  • Crossing your legs during the interview is agreeable,

  • and will not appear as defensive as crossing your arms.

  • It’s useful if you point to the interviewer

  • with your knees or your feet.

  • This will help position your body so you're focused on them alone.

  • But don’t overdo it.

  • Being physically expressive as you speak

  • shows confidence in what you're saying.

  • Use your hands to roll-out answers,

  • or give shape to your ideas.

  • That’s it.

  • The interviewers think you know what you're talking about.

  • However, don’t exaggerate the gestures.

  • Youre not breaking moves at the local discotheque.

  • And avoid finger-pointing.

  • Instead, motion with your hands palm-up,

  • as this signifies an offering gesture.

  • Perfecting your body language

  • requires practice in a pressure situation,

  • so try to train yourself as much as possible.

  • Doing so will help you iron-out

  • awkward habits and prevent clumsy moments.

  • Well done, you nailed it.

  • Hang tight. Youre career just might be taking off.

So youre off to your job interview.
