Posture and Body Language

We’ll start with posture. This is important whether this interview is over the web or in person; the way you sit speaks volumes about how you feel about yourself – and remember – confidence is key. Are you sitting with your back straight, shoulders relaxed, and your head level?

These are indications of self-confidence and comfort and will not only project these feelings but enhance them within yourself as well. If you’re at home on the web, think about sitting on a chair that doesn’t have a back, so that you can’t slouch.

Consider the opposite: hunched back, tight raised shoulders, and head bowed downward. Does this look like the posture of a physician with whom you would entrust your healthcare? Try both postures out yourself to see how they feel. You’ll notice a difference right away – and so will the interviewer on the other side of the desk or video conference.
