Awareness of Invisible Communications In An Interview
The power of body language.
During the interview, body language and open communication is important to making a professional impression.
- Do not cross arms; this means that the candidate is not open to hearing what the interviewer is saying.
- With confidence, look your interviewer in the eyes.
- Do not be afraid to ask questions in order to make the most informed decisions.
Etiquette After The Interview
After the interview, follow-up with a phone call or a thank you letter to acknowledge the interviewer for their time spent with you. The follow-up after an interview is a professional gesture that demonstrates consideration. This is an attribute that employers look for in candidates.
