You’ve probably heard of power poses – they change your brain chemistry to give you more confidence. Well, the same is true of your body language during an interview.
- Walk tall and relaxed, then adjust your seat so that you can make eye contact with everyone in the room.
- Scooch back and lean slightly forward to look engaged and interested. Breath slowly and deeply.
- Keep your feet on the ground and try not to cross and uncross your legs.
- Look at your interviewers directly but don’t have a forced stare. Let your eyes move slightly around their face.
- Relax your jaw and try to maintain a gentle smile. Picture a pleasant scene occasionally to relax your body and mind.
- Practice speaking with open hand gestures so that they come naturally. Keep your hands relaxed and in view.
