Body Language Speaks Even When You Don't
Surprising as it may
seem, your body movements will express quite a bit about you to the well
Some examples for good
and bad body language are:
- Slouching or poor posture may
lead someone to believe that you are lazy and not very well mannered.
- A good posture in both
standing and sitting will demonstrate your respect and seriousness as
well as your enthusiasm.
- Avoiding eye contact may be
a signal of dishonesty or inferiority.
- A weak handshake may
indicate a lack of confidence.
- Tapping fingers or feet are
annoying and immediately noticeable. These habits indicate both
nervousness and hypertension.
- Frowning doesn’t
necessarily please anyone, a smile will add character and pleasantness.
- Arms crossed in front of
body indicate shielding from the interviewer which may cause suspicion.
- Your hair grooming and
personal hygiene will be very important and certainly noticed.
What if they offer me
the job on the spot? Although this situation rarely occurs, it is wise to be
prepared for it, especially after you knock the socks off your interviewer!
When a company offers a job on the spot it may not necessarily indicate a
‘red flag’ as many candidates may suspect. The manager may be just so thrilled
with you that he is convinced that you are the right person for the job.
There are two ways that
you can handle an offer on the spot:
- The first is in the case that the employer
presents an offer that is acceptable. It is not wrong for you to accept
an offer on the spot if you are sure that the job, the company and the
offer is satisfactory to you. So if the offer meets your criteria, then
it is proper to accept.
- The second situation is
where an offer is made, however it is not quite acceptable. In this
case, it is in your best interest to thank the interviewer for the
interview and for considering you to be the right person. Express your
interest and excitement in the position, and let the interviewer know
that you would like to respond to your Executech personnel consultant
after you have an evening to think the offer over.
offer handling methods will achieve far better results than trying to
negotiate single handedly, in a one on one situation, and you won’t be starting
off with your new manager with a tough negotiation over the offer. Always
contact your Executech personnel consultant immediately after the interview,
so that he can get to work right away on any salary negotiation or inquiries
of the company that you may have. If you are experienced or if you are entry
level, we can help you achieve your career goals.
