The warm up

Mirroring the person

Mirror the interviewer’s hand gestures to get them to like you. It sends out a positive vibe that you both are on the same wavelength. But remember, flat-out copying would just make you look like a creep. If they scratch their nose with their left hand then you touch your face with your right.

Bond with the interview

Interviewers conduct numerous interviews in a day and see a lot of generic faces. The key here is to stand out from the crowd. Finding common ground with your interviewer helps you do just that. He is more likely to remember you if you both had a healthy discussion about your favourite sports team.

Body language

Fidgeting, cracking your knuckles or playing with your pen gives off out a negative vibe. Likewise, if you sit with your hands crossed, you are more likely to get rejected. Sit upright, shoulders back ,chest forward and make eye contact at all times. It oozes out confidence.

Read the interviewer

Speaking of body language, there is a thing or two that you can do to read your interviewer. When they lock their eyes on you, they are expecting you to elaborate on your stance. Raised eyebrows signals discomfort. So watch out for these and similar nuances that will give the appropriate feedback.
