Actions are more powerful than words. Many times our body language speaks more than our words. This could be a very important thing to notice when it comes to a job interview. Candidates lose or get hired for the job offer as to how they behave during the interview round. With this blog we would like to introduce the best body language tips for interviews for fresher and experienced professionals.

Before the interview 

Groom yourself

Grooming is very important for everyone, one night before the interview trying to groom yourself properly so that the next morning you may have the best look for you. This includes unwanted facial hair removal, nail cutting and a beauty sleep of 8 hours so you will look fresh at the time of your face2face round of interview.

Get dressed properly. 
In India, for male candidates it is advised to dress up in formals like a check shirt, formal trousers, leather shoes, sober wrist watches and ties if possible. For female candidates it is advised to be in formals like shirts and skirts. It has also been seen that any sober Indian attire will also work out perfectly for interviews.

It could be possible that your hands are a bit sweaty, so try to wash your hands with cold water for at least 30 seconds. This trick will cool down your hands and actually work nervousness too.


Give them a steady handshake

When your hands are cool then you are ready for the next phase, which is your first handshake with the interviewer. Try to make it a firm handshake because it defines your personality. Be strong and confident in doing it.

Maintain body posture and smile.
