Non-Verbal Communication In Job Interviews

[wpvideo kDHPgZ3Z]

This week on KUSI’s Good Morning San Diego, I talk about the important role nonverbal communication plays in a job interview. When interviewing, nonverbal communication and body language are just as important as the words you say. To make a good first impression, it is critical to have your nonverbal communication messages match your verbal messages. In the segment, I point out that many job interviewees may not even be aware of the nonverbal communication messages they are conveying to potential employers, such as nervously nodding, staring and crossing your arms. I also stress the importance of a good first handshake as well as provide some practice recommendations to ensure your nonverbal communication will be in check for your next interview.
