You can tell a lot about a person from the way they hold themselves and body language can give away a lot about what you are thinking or feeling.
In professional situations such as job interviews and client meetings, it’s important for you to present yourself in the most positive way possible and you want to come across as confident and approachable.
In order to achieve this, pay attention to the body language that you use, as there a lot of common mistakes that people make that can result in you coming across as uninterested, nervous or bored. Here are some of the most common body language errors to watch out for.
1) Avoiding eye contact
You want to appear confident and self assured so try to maintain eye contact throughout conversations.
2) Bad posture
Slouching can give off the impression of disinterest, so sit up straight and give your interviewer your full attention.
Fidgeting or fiddling is often a nervous reflex, however it can make you appear uncomfortable or be interpreted as boredom.
