If you can t meet someone s eye, it looks like you re
hiding something. If gazing into someone s eyes freaks
you out, look at their nose. It works just as well.
Do you want to appear nervous, even out of control?
Do you want to drive your interviewer crazy? If your
answer is no (let s hope so), train yourself to keep
still by breathing deeply and consciously relaxing
Yawning may seem like something you can t con-
trol, but your interviewer will see it very differently
and might think: "He s bored" or "What, she didn t
get enough sleep the night before her interview? She
must not care enough." Remember: you re supposed
to be on your best behavior in an interview.
This is an easy one---set the pen down.
Leave it in the car. Or just shut it off. You won t
need it, and you really don t want it to ring during the
interview. If you forget, and it rings, swiftly grab it and
shut it off, and apologize quickly and concisely. Then
move on. Definitely do not answer your phone or check
your texts during your time at the company.
Come on, are you in high school? Stop biting your
If you have a cold, take a decongestant, or make
sure you blow your nose before the interview. If you
sneeze, simply say: "Forgive me for sneezing, I have
a bit of a cold." You definitely don t want to give the
impression that you re sick a lot, so don t sniffle
through the whole interview or make it an issue in

Eww. Bottom line: The interview is not the place
for personal hygiene of any kind.
Using gestures to punctuate your ideas can be part
of being an effective speaker. But overdoing it derails
your answer and the impression you re trying to
make. This is another area where feedback can be
Fiddling with your clothes communicates discom-
fort and insecurity. The interviewer may conclude
you re not used to wearing a suit or you re not com-
fortable in your dress, and that s not good. An employ-
er wants to hire people who look like they were made
for the job---like they already suit the position.
You bored? Tired? Bored and tired? Wish you were
somewhere else? No problem. The hiring manager
will wish you were there, too.
Yes, it s important to appear congenial and interested
in the interviewer and in the job, but you don t want
to come off like a con artist or a fake. Ask someone
close to you if you tend to smile too much when
you re nervous.
Bet you didn t know there were so many ways to
be annoying! Before your next interview, practice
with a trusted friend or adviser. Or videotape yourself
answering questions. It could be the best thing you
do for your job hunt.
