  • Never use glove handshake, fingertip-grab handshake, palm up handshake, palm down handshake and dead fish handshake in an interview. These handshakes might give a negative impression to the interviewer.


Don’t Talk Excessively
It is better answering a question directly. Do not take too much time for an answer. Over-talking takes a couple of forms:

  • If the candidate takes long time answering a question, then it assumes that the candidate can not get to the point.
  • If your talk shows nervousness, then it interprets you are covering up something.

The candidate can avoid either of these forms of talking excessively, practice answering questions in a direct manner.


Never talk negative about current or past employers/managers
