3 Nonverbal Queues that can ruin your chances of getting the JOB you want

When going through the process of fielding job applications online and offline, finally start landing some interviews, the process can be daunting and sometimes frustrating. I understand all too well how looking for a job is truly a full-time job. Keeping your mind positive and continue to take action just one part of the process. The other part is to know what to do and the career tools to use once job/career opportunities begin to materialize. The job search becomes even more exciting when you start landing interviews…

Interviews means you are one step closer to landing the job or career opportunity, so you want to make sure you prepare with the right career tools, possible questions and responses to the questions. You also want to be aware of how you communicate nonverbally, especially during the interview. If you are looking for additional help with preparing for your next interview, check out the interview help resource interview help resource where you can get the tools you need to DOMINATE in your next interview.

Your nonverbal communicate can speak more loudly than your words in an interview, so it’s important to be aware of what you are communicating to the interviewer. Here are 3 nonverbal queues that could jeopardize your chances of landing the interview…

1st Queue Not speaking clearly or loud enough for the interviewer to make understand what you are saying. It’s so important to speak loud enough, but not too loud, like your at a ball game screaming…well, you get the point. Your tone of voice is also important. Speaking in a monotone voice can communicate to the interviewer that you are bored or uninterested in the position you are discussing. Even if you say the right things, the monotone voice can kill your chances. If you are looking for more customized help or coaching through the interview process, check this resource to get your industry specific interview coaching to handle your next interview like a BOSS!!

2nd Queue Shrugging your shoulders with your head down, especially when speaking with the interviewer(s). It’s important to present yourself like a confident candidate, even with virtual interviews. It helps communicate to the interviewer that you are confident with your experience and demonstrate how your unique qualifications help their organization. Believe it or not, your body language is more than fifty percent of your communication.

3rd Queue Facial expression that expresses negativity. Your facial expression speaks volumes without saying a word. If you face looks like you just smelled some disgusting garbage, you will not be received well by the interviewer. You have to be mindful of your facial expressions especially when someone says something you don’t like or agree with. You always have to keep positive and slight smiling face, which I refer to as keeping your “game face” on. If someone’s face is not pleasant, do you want to keep looking at them? So why do you think the interviewer wants to look at your facial expressions when it’s unpleasant? I just want to bring that point the fore. If you looking for more customized help with your interviews, check out this interview resource, so you can truly set yourself up to WIN in the job market.

3-Before your next job interview…AVOID doing these 6 things….

Hey beautiful people! This is the third installment of the interview series.

Listen, I know you may be nervous and jittery about your next job interview, especially if it’s for an awesome opportunity you’ve been looking forward to. Whatever you do, please AVOID these six actions I’m about to discuss…if you have any hope of landing this job or career opportunity.

Avoid #3 – Bringing your mobile telephone interview with the ringtone on. There is nothing more rude to interviewers than having the mobile telephone rings in the middle of an interview. The ringing disrupts the flow of the interview and may cause you to loose the opportunity. It sounds simple…but I’ve seen it happen. If there is a possible chance you cannot place your phone on silent or vibration mode, just leave the phone in the car.

If you’re struggling with your interview process, and need additional in-depth resources to help you with your next career/job interview? Schedule an interview coaching session to obtain the “industry specific” strategy and tools to DOMINATE in your next interview or if you’re truly motivated and move at your own pace, find this resource helpful.

Avoid #2 – Dressing inappropriately for the interview, even if the interview is not in-person.
I was taking to one of the facilitators in the career workshop I attended about a year ago and she shared how one of her clients was interviewing a candidate through Skype. The candidate apparently asked to be excused for a moment to use the restroom during the interview. What the candidate seemed to forget that he only dressed for the Skype interview from the waist up. The candidate only had his underwear on from the waist down and forgot to close the computer or cover the camera as he went to the bathroom. He practically mooned the interviewers going to the bathroom. Needless to say, this candidate did not get the job opportunity, all because he did not dress properly. It sounds simple, but being aware and taking the appropriate action will always work out better for you in the long run.

Listen, I know you may be nervous and jittery about your next job interview, especially if it’s for an awesome opportunity you’ve been looking forward to. Whatever you do, please AVOID these six actions I’m about to discuss…if you have any hope of landing this job or career opportunity.

Avoid #1 – Being late for the interview(s).
It doesn’t matter what type of interview it is…phone interview, in-person (one on one or panel), video or audio conferencing. The result of being late shows this employer you are not responsible with your time and will reflect badly on their first impressions of you. Remember, this is the beginning stages of forging a professional relationship, so timeliness is absolutely critical in forging your connection.
