To Don’t Tuesday

Image

Each week our Emerald Recruiters interview a handful of people each week.  Our hope is to help and prepare individuals for interviewing.  Emerald’s “To-Don’t” this week: Use the wrong body language!

Here are a few No-No’s that we’ve picked up on throughout the years…

  • Rub or touch your nose. This suggests that you’re not being completely honest, and it’s gross.
  • Sit with your armed folded across your chest. You’ll appear unfriendly and disengaged.
  • Cross your legs and idly shake one over the other. It’s distracting and shows how uncomfortable you are.
  • Lean your body towards the door. You’ll appear ready to make a mad dash for the door.
  • Slouch back in your seat. This will make you appear disinterested and unprepared.
  • Stare back blankly. This is a look people naturally adapt when they are trying to distance themselves.

GOOD LUCK!
