10 Body Language Mistakes That Could Cost You The Job10 Body Language Mistakes That Can Cost You The JobWeak handshake.Invading personal space.Crossing your arms.Playing with your hair.Bad posture.Lack of eye contact.Looking like you're not interested.Not smiling.Fidgeting.Hiding your hands.

Mon, 5 Dec 2016 08:00:00 -0500

Your perfectly manicured résumé, flawless cover letter and brilliant responses to tough interview questions might make you a strong job candidate—but forget to smile, slouch in your chair or fail to make eye contact during the interview, and you could be out of the running. Here are 10 interview body language mistakes that could cost you a job offer.

Before you shake hands, rise, walk up to the hiring manager with confidence, make eye contact and smile. “Make sure your handshake is firm, but don't crush the hiring manager's hand,” says body language expert and author Patti Wood. "The secret to a great handshake is palm-to-palm contact. Slide your hand down into the web of theirs and make palm-to-palm contact. Lock thumbs with the hiring manager, and apply as much pressure as he or she does.” But remember that the appropriate amount of pressure varies from culture to culture.

Be respectful of the hiring manager’s personal space. Don’t stand too close and certainly don't hug them.

That can make you look defensive or uncomfortable. Instead, gesture with your hands. That way you'll appear more enthusiastic and engaging.

“It’s a stress comfort cue that can make you look childish,” Wood says. You don’t want to distract the hiring manager with this body language gaffe.

Sit up straight. “Asymmetrical body language can make you look confused or dishonest,” Wood says.

“It’s okay for the candidate to look away when he or she is talking,” Wood says. “It’s normal to look around when you’re speaking because you’re accessing different parts of the brain by moving your eyes. But be attentive and make eye contact when the interviewer is speaking.” Think of eye contact as a connection tool.

“It’s fine if you have an expressive face,” Wood says. “It makes you more likeable.” But be aware of your facial expressions, and don’t check your watch or your cell phone during the interview.

You can all too easily appear nervous or unfriendly. Smile, but keep it subtle.

Don’t touch your face, play with change in your pocket or bite your nails. Fidgeting is a distraction and a sign of anxiety.

“Don’t sit on your hands or hide them in your lap,” Wood says. “Place them on the arms of your chair or the desk or use them to gesture. Gesturing makes you look more expressive, and the interviewer can read how open and honest you are by looking at your hands.”

Given how important financial skills are to navigating life, it’s surprising that our schools don’t teach children about money. As a parent, however, you can teach your child important financial lessons as he or she grows up. Here are some tips appropriate for each age group from Beth Kobliner, author of the New York Times bestseller Get a Financial Life, and a member of the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability who spearheaded the creation of Money as You Grow, which offers age-appropriate money lessons for children.


“This is a hard concept for people to learn of all ages,” says Kobliner. However, the ability to delay gratification can also predict how successful one will be as a grown-up. Kids at this age need to learn that if they really want something, they should wait and save up to buy it.

1. When your kid is waiting in line, say, to go on the swings or for his or her birthday, discuss the importance of waiting.
2. Create three jars – each labeled “Saving,” “Spending” or “Sharing.” Every time your child receives money, divide the money equally among the jars.
3. Have your child set a goal. Every time he adds money to the savings jar, talk with him about how much he needs to reach his goal, and when he will reach it.

At this age, it’s important to explain to your child, “Money is finite and it’s important to make wise choices, because once you spend it, you don’t have more to spend,” Kobliner says.

1. Include your child in some financial decisions. For instance, explain, “The reason I chose the generic grape juice rather than the brand name is that it costs 50 cents less and tastes the same to me,” says Kobliner.
2. Give your child some money in a supermarket and have her make choices about what fruit to buy, within the parameters of what you need.
3. When you’re shopping, talk aloud about how you’re making your financial decisions. Say things like, “Is this something we really, really need? Or can we skip it this week since we’re going out to dinner?”

Explain that compound interest is when you earn interest both on your savings as well as on past interest.


1. Describing compound interest using specific numbers is more effective than describing it in the abstract. Explain, “If you set aside $100 every year starting at age 14, you’d have $23,000 by age 65, but if you start at age 35, you’ll only have $7,000 by age 65.”
2. Have your child do some compound interest calculations on And have them read this inspiring example of someone who
