NEXT | TALKING AROUND QUESTIONS >>
It doesn’t matter if you were up until 3 a.m. researching this hospital and reviewing your clinical skills if you yawn during an interview. A yawn, however innocent, implies that you aren’t taking the position seriously. A yawn can say a lot: That you’re a party animal who doesn’t get enough sleep, that you don’t know proper time management, or that you’re simply bored with the entire interview process.
How to Fix It:
First and most importantly, make sure you get a full night of sleep before the interview.
Have some caffeine before you show up — but not too much. Do some yoga. Stretch in the bathroom. Take a quick walk around the block. Anything you can do to get the blood flowing will not only wake you up, but will also help with your response time to questions.
