A person’s image of themselves is a big part of their personality. Having low self esteem shows and can stop someone from getting a badly needed job. Low self esteem is seen in how the person stands, in their facial expressions and in their voice, and maybe their hands get shaky.
A good candidate for a job will demonstrate certain qualities, more than just the right training or schooling, because personality can play a big part in whether someone is chosen from a crowd. No employer wants someone who speaks quietly, keeps a very reserved body language going on, or doesn’t know the job. They’d much rather have someone with personality – a real person that can learn and grow with the company.
Demonstrating personality shouldn’t be a show of the person’s most outrageous behavior; in fact, employers usually won’t choose someone who is boisterous. But having an air of confidence in themselves goes a long way toward being chosen. The attitude about past experience should reveal skills they could bring to the current job.
Be Confident in Skills and Sit up Straight
Some people just aren’t made for some jobs, that’s true. A shy, introverted person barely musters up the volume for the interview, so applying for a job as a tour guide wouldn’t work. But, this shy person can have confidence in their skills and respond in kind to questions in a job they’re well suited for.
Body language can take a shy person to the top by sitting and standing in an attentive, confident manner. Usually potential employers want to sit while they interview a person, so the applicant should sit straight, look the interviewer in the eye and lean forward just a bit to look more interested. Any speaker will respond to a good listener.
Try to appear confident, even if the insides are shaking.
