How To Show Confidence In Job Interviews – Part 1

You know it is important to show you are confident in a job interview, but this is often easier said than done. It is likely you will be nervous when attending a job interview. Don’t worry, this is the case for the vast majority of applicants and candidates. However, you want to create the best impression, and we are happy to help you show confidence in job interviews.

So as not to overwhelm you, we are going to break the tips down across two articles. The first tips will help you develop your confidence, so focus on these tips first. Once you feel more confident, head over to our next page, and learn about other tips which will ensure you create the best possible impression at every job interview.

Hold eye contact with the interviewer

When it comes to showing confidence, holding eye contact with people you are talking with is very important. If you look down or to the side, you will create a bad impression, and in a job interview, this may be an issue which sees you fall behind other suitable candidates.

Before you go to the job interview, practice holding eye contact while people talk. You need to hold eye contact while listening, and speaking. A lot of people struggle to maintain eye contact when they are speaking, so make sure you practice this.

Body positioning is important

To show you feel confident, it is best to maintain an open position, and this is true whether you are sitting or standing. Have your arms by your side, and resist any temptation to cross your arms. You should attempt to make your body appear larger, not smaller. By doing so, you will create a more confident aura around you, and this sends out the right signal to the interviewer.

Don’t fidget in an interview

To show you are calm and relaxed, it is best to be still and not fidget. If you tap your hand or feet, it will suggest a nervousness about your actions, which may lead to the interviewer questioning your responses.

You can talk with your hands, and you should show signs of enthusiasm and expression, but when you should be listening, your hands should be at rest.

Smile during the interview

Hopefully, you will enjoy the interview process, and if you do, you should relax and smile. Even if you are unsure of how the process is going, try to relax and smile as best you can, as this will at least create the impression you feel at ease during the process.

These four tips may not sound like a lot, but when you bring them all together, you will look and feel much more confident during the interview process.
