How important is body language in an interview?
Answer added by: UDAI 1 year ago
Yes, body language is very important in an interview. It is a key to creating a first good impression along with your dress. When you enter the room for your interview, taking permission to enter, the way you walk in & greet, how you shake hands with proper eye contact & sit down tells a lot about your confidence, preparation & enthusiasm with which you approach the interview. While answering questions your body language should support your answers. Avoid fidgeting, shuffling of feet, pulling ears, etc. Nod your head & smile. Sit straight & feel comfortable. While leaving wish appropriately & walk away smartly. Remember your body language lingers on long after the interview is over.

As an interviewer, I strictly give importance to soft skills, presentation and body language, as rest is available in the CV. A blend of these three skills assists me dramatically for making decision. An individual with inappropriate body language will not be considered as a suitable individual representing the respective organization. Thus, body language is very important for jobs that include representing oneself physically.

Since it`s believed (according to the studies) that body language and non-verbal communication account for more than% of the message being delivered. Therefore, body language is considered a key component in any communication process. Consequently, an interview is also a form of a communication. Thus, your body language can have a positive or a negative influence on the interview.
The problem is that in most of the time the candidate- and even sometimes the interviewer- are not aware that their body language is affecting the outcome of the interview.

A bad first impression is difficult to overcome, no matter how solid your credentials. But with a little
work and practice, you can buff up your body language skills to boost your chances of nailing the
interview and taking the next big step in your career.
Pay attention to little things, like posture, sitting up straight, planting your feet squarely on the
floor, hand position and making eye contact with the interviewer
