Common Nonverbal Mistakes Made During a Job Interview

By Janice Burch, Co-founder, Pro Resume Center, LLC


You fidget when nervous, curl your hair with your index finger or tend to bite your lip.

We all have little nervous habits but if we can become aware of these, we can work toward not sharing them during a job interview.

This is the time to put your best foot forward – and while what you are saying may be the most eloquent, thoughtful and impactful thing the interviewer may have heard all week, he won’t hear it if he’s preoccupied with paying attention to your toe tapping, leg swinging, and lip biting.

Check out this excellent infographic below for more reasons why you should pay attention to your body language during a job interview or any kind of  presentation:

    Do have a site where I can view interviews. I think it would be helpful to see what a good interview looks like and what a bad interview looks like.

      Hi Lee, great question! Currently we do not have a video library of resources for these types of topics. However, if you are not already, make sure to sign up for our email list. Late 2017/early 2018 we are launching 2 new sites! This main website will be completely revamped from the top-down – and we will also be launching a “client site” where we will be housing our new video libraries. At that time we will slowly start rolling out videos and video coach series on many different topics.

      Stay tuned!
