When Actions Speak Louder Than Words

We often mention the importance of knowing what to say during an interview.  It’s always good to use positive words, have solid examples, etc.  However, what your body says is just as important as what your mouth says.  Folding your arms can make you seem closed off, and staring off into space and avoiding eye contact can come across as though you aren’t totally focused on the interviewer.  Careerealism has 5 things you should focus on during your interview to make sure your body language matches your verbal language.  Don’t forget, you only get one chance to make a good impression, and with some interviewers, your body language will be your first impression.  Don’t let fidgeting get in the way of a new job or internship!
