Body Language For Interview Success

Alexandria Joy - Monday, September 14, 2015

Are you looking to land a new job? Then you have to use your body! I'm not just talking here about how you suit up, I'm talking about how you show up and communicate through your gestures, facial expressions and movements we make with our bodies that indicate what we think and feel.

The way we walk, talk, sit and smile is part of our everyday communication and it becomes even more critical in all important job interviews, because everything we do is scrutinised more closely and because due to natural nerves, are often exaggerated more than ever.

There are several ways you can effectively use your body at a job interview from making a confident entrance as you enter the building, to giving a warm, friendly, not a bone crushing handshake on entry into the interview room. 

Watch this week's episode of UQTV for three more body language techniques to help you put your best foot forward and be your best self in an interview situation.


Remember at the end of the interview to also leave a good impression, rise calmly, pick up your things without fuss, smile and nod your head to the panel. If shaking hands with everyone isn't convenient, at least shake hands with the person who brought you to the interview space or seeing you out.

Good luck!
