Making a Confident First Impression

  • Have an open posture. Be relaxed, sit or stand upright and place your hands by your sides. 
  • Use a firm handshake. But don't get carried away - you'll likely come across as rude or aggressive.
  • Maintain good eye contact. Try to hold the other person's gaze for a few seconds at a time. 
  • Avoid touching your face. There's a common perception that people who touch their faces while answering questions are being dishonest.
