nonverbal pitfalls to watch for 小心坠入面试中肢体语言的陷阱
it begins even before you say your first word in an interview. by the time the interviewer walks toward you, an opinion is already being formed. there you sit waiting to spew out your answers to questions you've prepared for, while you are already being judged by your appearance, posture, smile or nervous look.
a study done at ucla a few years ago revealed that the impact of a performance was based 7 percent on the words used, 38 percent on voice quality and 55 percent on nonverbal communication.
look back at speakers or teachers you've listened to. which ones stand out as memorable? the ones who were more animated and entertaining or the ones who just gave out information? this is not to say you have to entertain the interviewer (no jokes, please), but it does mean the conversation should be more interactive. if you say you are excited about the prospect of working for this company but don't show any enthusiasm, your message will probably fall flat. so smile, gesture once in a while, show some energy and make the experience more pleasurable for both sides.
