Many people are uncomfortable with the interview process…how about you? At this time in America, there are many people looking for work. Part of your professional life will be to experience the interview process and much of your professional success will depend on your interview skills. Although interviews can be extremely stressful, they are an ordinary component of our work lives and something that most everyone will encounter.
Interviews are situations where you are being evaluated and the interview process contains a silent part that actually speaks loudly about you and how you behave under pressure. It is known as the etiquette of the interview.
The etiquette of the interview is as important as the verbal conversation and where you will quietly, but loudly display your polish. As a matter of fact, with all the competition in the job market as a whole, statistics show the respect you show by your dress, posture, gestures, facial expressions and your body language, is actually worth more than your well rehearsed answers.
Polish is not listed on the resume, but must be part of your silent skill set.
