The past two weeks in the United States, we have had two political conventions. Each having speeches from politicians who have been thoroughly coached on how to speak in public and gain acceptance and likability. It is interesting to see how they use their body language to express themselves in a manner that will gain votes.
With the job interview candidates in this video,from our e-course, Ace Your Interview, each has body language that is fairly easily read. Let's talk about each here.
How to Read Facial Expressions and Body Language
*The first candidate, although impeccably dressed, does not deliver the right message. He does not address the receptionist at all. His body language suggests that the person speaking is not worthy of his time. His phone call is all that he is interested in. He does not make eye contact and sends a shooing hand motion to the young lady.
*Our next interview candidate is dressed very well, like the previous. She seems very sweet but shows body language that would indicate that she is sad, dejected and not confident. Her shoulders are slumped, she leans on the receptionists's desk. This body language is very telling for the candidate and not body language that one should use.
*The candidate who comes in poorly dressed and takes over the room reveals a great deal in his method. His attire is inappropriate for any job candidate. The undershirt being worn as a shirt is not how to dress for an interview. Not only his volume, but his body language expresses a disrespect for the office culture and the receptionist. His loud takeover creates an energy that is chaotic and not fitting for work environment.
*The final candidate demonstrates body language that exhibits a calm confidence. He is well dressed, open in his body language, appropriate in volume and tone. He has excellent body language and presents as an ideal candidate.
This form of communication is most effective and can be changed to help you present well. As we saw in the political and job candidates, this can be tweaked. Not all of the speakers at the conventions were top notched speaker when they began. There were forms of body language that they used that were aggressive and unflattering in the beginning. The candidates were coached and replaced those behaviors with others that made they seemingly nicer. You have the power to address how you communicate with your body language and we can help!
