The day has finally arrived. You have an opportunity to show your best in order to obtain the job of your dreams but did you know that the ideas you might express during an interview might be the opposite of what your body is communicating at that moment? Do you know what your corporate language says about you? Here we explain it for you.
When you arrive to a job interview, the recruiter will be looking at your education and professional experience but also at your corporate language. It is important that in these moments you show yourself as confident and that you hide away the nervousness or anxiety you might be feeling so that you don´t transmit this to the person who is interviewing you.
At the OIE we want your interviews to be a success for your professional career and to help you in that process, we give you some key advice so that you can arrive confident on that day.
Have you ever thought that certain movements you make might be interpreted the wrong way by the interviewer? For example, looking down can be interpreted as not believing what you are listening, crossing your arms at the height of your chest during the interview transmits and defensive attitude, or rubbing your hands together can show impatience.
However, there are certain gestures that a recruiter might value in a positive way such as slightly tilting your head which for example can transmit interest for what you are hearing or even just walking straight which is a symbol of confidence in yourself.
Remember that your body can back up, emphasize or it can even deny what you are saying. Learn how to use it in your favor so that you can show an open attitude when you are in front of the interviewer!
