At the end of the session you should be able to:

Present possible areas of personal development in context of non-verbal communication during interviews.
How much do we
others without words?
Listen to Donald.
Now let's see how
much we would
understand if it was
Matt speaking to us
in a foreign language?
What is non-verbal
Definition: The process of
sending and receiving
posture / body pose
Clothing and hairstyle
Architecture, colours, temperature,
noise, and music affect the behaviour
of communicators during interaction.
Proxemics: the study of how people use and perceive the physical space around them. The space between the sender and the receiver of a message influences the way the message is interpreted.
Speed of speech.
Intonation and stress
I CAN'T believe he did that
I can’t believe he did THAT
Most importantly - smile. It's easy to focus
too much on appearing professional and
coming across as VERY SERIOUS.
Offer a firm handshake when you enter the room.
You will also make an impression if you repeat this
at the end of the interview.
Listen actively - show that you are interested
and listening by nodding your head and asking questions if necessary.
Don't speak too quickly. Take your time
when answering the questions. It's not about the speed of your answers but about the quality of them.
If you have more than one person interviewing
you at once, make sure you briefly address both
people with your gaze.
Sit up straight, and lean slightly forward in your chair.
If there is a table or desk - keep your hands
on top of it rather than underneath it. Try and
not fiddle with things.
