In life, body language is important.
Humans can produce over:
- 700,000 signs
- 1,000 different postures
- 5,000 hand gestures
- 250,000 facial expressions.
Up to 95% of messages are communicated via body language and a first impression is 55% based on body language.
So, how do you get the right body language in an interview?
- Handshake – Make sure your palms are dry during the handshake and be firm and confident.
- Posture – Sit tall and avoid crossing your arms.
- Eye contact – Look in the eye-nose triangle for the majority of the time.
