Job Interview Question and Answer



Job Interview Question and Answer :




Eye Contact


Maintain normal eye contact with the interviewer and try to control (even if unconsciously) the tendency to stare or look down. You should remember that the eye is the mirror of the soul.


What you should Avoid…


The interviewer will be aware that you are nervous and make some concessions. However, if you are given to nervous twitches and habits like…


Biting or chewing your lips

Scratching your nose, ears, chin or neck

Wringing your hands

Tapping the floor with your foot

Fiddling with a pen

Handling your hair

Biting or picking your nails


Or some other expressions of discomfort and nervousness, you must contain yourself as they can be distracting and irritating. You may be unaware of these habits. Ask someone who knows you well to observe and conect you.
