It indicates that you don’t care about what’s currently happening and you aren’t fully committed or engaged. 

  • Speak clearly and with an even tone. Not too loud or too quiet, as you could come across as dominating or shy.
  • Using filler words such as ‘um’ or ‘so’ or filling in gaps with ‘like’ or ‘you know’ will make you seem less knowledgeable. Pay special attention to your usage...

When you’re nervous, it shows in the way you’re standing or what you’re doing with your hands. The same goes for when you’re confident. Standing tall and making eye contact shows confidence. 

Being late always equals a bad first impression and is one of the hardest mistakes to recover from. When in doubt, show up early. 

Know the appropriate way to dress so you won’t be underdressed or overdressed.
