10 Subtle Ways to Sabotage Your Interview
NEXT | TOO MANY LONG PAUSES >>
Bad posture during a nursing interview
can give the impression that you are lazy or disrespectful — and who wants to hire a lazy nurse? Reclining might tell the interviewer that you are bored or cocky. Slouching forward gives the impression of nervousness. If you are constantly shifting from one position to another it shows that you are uncomfortable, which in turn can make the interviewer uncomfortable. None of these traits are desirable in a nursing candidate!
How to Fix It:
Relax against the back of your chair. Make sure your feet are firmly planted on the floor and engage your core. Avoid sitting up too
straight, as that can also make you look uncomfortable. It may sound crazy, but practice sitting at home and see how long you can hold a comfortable position without too much shifting around.
