“The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said” Peter F. Drucker
Most job applicants failed to notice the gestures or the non verbal communication that they do during an interview, mainly because they focus more on what they will say or what to answer.
55% comprises the body language of the interviewee and only 7% focus on their answer. The other 38% comprises the fillers, sighs, intonations that the applicant responds. This was based from a study reported by the CollegeJournal.
Most HR personnel start to observe you the moment you step your feet in the interview booth. In this case, your gestures are first observed rather on how you express yourself. Remember that first impression matters in an interview.
What are the non verbal communications?
Why non verbal communication important?
The way you communicate is as important as non verbal expression. You can hide your true self on what you say but never on how you act. In non verbal communication, your behavioral characteristic is observed as well as the cultural environment that you belong.
Often times, the interviewer does not pay attention on what you say because they heard it a thousand times before. They focus more on how you act to asses how you carry yourself in a formal talk.
To get a job, it’s not always on how you speak yourself. Remember that action speaks louder than words.
