  1. I answered all the questions 100% correctly but I couldn't stop waving my hands around. It's really difficult not to use my hands, even if I hold my hands together. HELP !

  2. could you help me on few things. How to react to an Interviewer 1) when I don't know answer for the question, 2) what should I say if He or She asks about my Expected Salary?

  3. I have done all this gestures in a job interview and actually works. Self-control and confidence will increase the chance to get the dream job you want.

  4. These are all great tips! Why dont interviewers take into consideration the stressful circumstances of a job interview? The candidate is merely human too.

  5. this world is fucked up. i followed your exact advises and got screwed up. In interviews, they want you to be unreal and flawless, they even want you to fake that you are happy and excited. I hate the interviews part, its just lame.

  6. 1. adopt an engaged posture
    2. appear clam & relaxed
    3. use the right hand gestures
    4. mirror the interviewer
    5. get your eye contact right
    6. avoid lying signals
    7. give the perfect handshake

    Thanks mate.

  7. thanks cognitive group for this social video.what a bravo brief explanation about the body language really appreciated

  8. Absolutely loved these tips, very informative. Had not known about the lying signals – learn something new everyday(smile). Good job !!

  9. Keeping eyes in one spot is really hard for me, same with sitting still. But, of problems that I think is one the biggest I have is the handshake. I can't stand handshakes and get angsiaty (Sp) attack almost.

    Also, what of those interviewers when comes to handshakes that seem to have the hand crush type shake. I've encountered a hand full of these guys/gals. One older lady actually was hard enough that she left deep imprints for a bit in my skin (later I found she had actually cracked another lady's hand with that grip). Or this thick texan like guy trying to do the same, I became rather angry at it and told him off with him laughing at me about being a "MAN". Obviously I didn't get that job, but glad I didn't seeings he was a whole level of jerk. I do find fairly often men that seem to try and go for hard of squeeze as they possibly can and I find it sometimes all I can do to keep my hand from not collapsing down in their grips.
