The most wonderful time of the year is amongst us – football season (even if it is just the preseason). The preseason offers players the opportunity to really shine and potentially earn a full time position in the regular season. Take for example the current battle for the backup quarterback for the Houston Texans – T.J. Yates vs. Case Keenum. Both have really brought their A - game to the preseason and are letting the fans know that they’re putting up a fight for that coveted spot (although as a fellow University of Houston alum, my vote goes to Case Keenum! – I hope Bob McNair is reading this).
The interview process should be viewed in the same way, as the preseason – this is no time for fumbles or interceptions. This is your shot to be on the roster for your dream employer. One big mistake in the interviewing game is not utilizing proper body language.
Below I have included a list of body language mistakes that could cost you the job.
· Invading personal space
· Crossing your arms
· Playing with your hair
· Bad posture
· Lack of eye contact
· Looking disinterested
· Not Smiling
· Hiding your hands
By avoiding these body language mistakes your future coach will know you’re a professional and committed to the team.
