10 Subtle Ways to Sabotage Your Interview

Jeff Hindenach | NursingLink

Not Looking Interviewer in the Eye



Problem: Looking your nursing interviewer directly in the eye shows a level of respect. It conveys the message that you are both on the same page and at the same level. If you are unable to look your interviewer in the eye, it says that you are uncomfortable with her, or worse, gives the impression that you are lying or making things up.

How to Fix It: Don’t keep your eyes locked with hers for the entire interview — that’s just creepy. But a good rule of thumb is to look her in the eye when she is talking, to show that you are actively listening. Also, make sure to reconnect when you are making a point, as an extra emphasis.
