PART 2: THE INTERVIEW
Take a few minutes and imagine what the ideal job interview would be like. You are confident and relaxed. You have dressed appropriately and arrived on time. After introducing yourself to the receptionist, you take a seat and patiently wait for your turn to be interviewed. You have come prepared with any information you may need to answer questions or fill out forms. You have a copy of your résumé in case the employer asks for it. You’re ready. It’s time to make an impression. Watch the video to find out how.

To use body language to your advantage:
• Use good posture. Sit up straight but comfortably.
• Make frequent eye contact with the interviewer.
• Don’t let your eyes wander to things in the room or on the interviewer’s desk.
• Avoid nervous movements with your hands, such as twisting a ring or clicking a pen.
• Smile and be pleasant.
Most importantly, concentrate and stay engaged in the conversation. Listen for opportunities to express ways in which you could help the company achieve their goals.
