When you’re on a first date, you pay close attention to the other person’s body language to see whether he or she is into you.
Does he make eye contact? Does he smile? Does he lean forward when you talk to show he’s interested in what you’re saying?
The same happens in a job interview. Hiring managers watch your body language to learn more about your personality and how excited you are about the job.
A study by CareerBuilder reveals the biggest body language mistakes job applicants make in interviews (not making eye contact, failing to smile and fidgeting).
It also reveals that some applicants have made far worse behavioral blunders than not looking the interviewer in the eye.
