Transcript

Welcome to step six, first impressions. Here we go, the receptionist looks up and announces, they're ready to see you or an unfamiliar face. We'll walk through into reception and announce your name and introduce themselves. And this is where it all starts. You stand up and you smile. Why do we smile?

Well, as I mentioned earlier, there is a part of the brain called the orbital frontal cortex. That is a primary purpose to look out for smiles and laughter. If you smile, the other person will see that you're not a threat and will relax and feel more comfortable in your presence. There will also be more likely to smile and return which will make you feel more relaxed. Simply put it smile, they smile. As you enter the room, I want you to make eye contact with everyone who is there and acknowledge them, even if it's just a nod.

If you have the opportunity to address each of the interviewers directly, that's great walk over, shake their hands whilst continuing to maintain eye contact and smiling. At this point, you can thank them for the opportunity for the interview. Then take your seat and sit upright, do not slouch. Do not lean forward on the table with your elbows or forearms, and make sure that you rest your hands casually and possibly a slight cupping. What I don't want you to be doing is playing with a pen. tapping your fingers into locking your fingers or giving any body language signals away the detailing the interviewers that you're uncomfortable or nervous or stressed, though, as we will cover in the next lecture.

I don't want you to look overly confident, as this may create a negative feeling within the interviews as well.
