When seeking employment how we present ourselves in person is just as important as how we present ourselves with the resume. It is not enough to give thoughtful answers to the interviewer. We also has to be aware that certain movements of the body can speak just as loud as words, if not louder, to the person sitting across the table from us.
For instance, if we are swerving around in our chair during the interview process this could send the message to the interviewer that we are not really mature enough to handle the job responsibilities. Whereas, leaning back our chair may cause the person giving the interview to believe we are not really interested in the job. On the other hand, sitting with our arms folded might send the signal to the interviewer that we are not inviting. The last thing we want to do is send any wrong impression to the person we are seeking employment from. To do so is to kill our chance of being hired.
We must remember, it is the resume that affords us the job interview and it is the interview that ultimately seals the deal. So it is important to be aware of anything that may stick out to the interviewer as a red flag and to remedy the problem beforehand.
