6) Make sure that your eyes sparkle

It's all very well having good eye contact at your interview, but if your eyes aren't looking bright and interested then you're making life difficult for yourself! Make sure that you have a good night's sleep your interview. Remember - this is a very important day - you need to look your best and have no bags under your eyes! If you want your eyes to sparkle then it's worthwhile getting some whitening eye drops. It doesn't cost much but it will work.

It's important to be subtly positive at your job interview. You need to demonstrate that you're actively taking part in the interview.

Top 10 Ways To Improve Your Interview Body Language - Part One

interview body languageThe following article summarises the top 10 ways to ensure that you show good interview body language. Make sure that all the preparation you do for a job interview isn't in vain. Your body language is key to job interview success.

The top 10 ways to improve your interview body language are as follows:

1) Eye Contact

There's nothing more off-putting to an interviewer than the interviewee being unable to make regular, good, strong eye contact. The interviewer may think that because you're unable to do this, you either have something to hide or you may not have the conviction of your beliefs. If you're struggling to concentrate when looking straight into someone's eyes, then try looking in-between their eyes. They won't be able to tell that you aren't looking straight into their eyes, but you'll find it easier to maintain focus. Try it with a friend first to see what I mean.

2) Smile

You need to practice a strong, sincere, smile. A good smile has the power to say, "I'm a happy, confident person and I'd love to work here". Try practicing smiling in a mirror. Practice a smile that puts people at ease. It's just as much your responsibility to ensure that there is a relaxed atmosphere during the interview. If you're embarrassed about your smile, see what a dentist can do about it. It might not cost too much to fix your teeth - and it will save you a lot of money if you get the job!

Veteran Career Opportunities in San Diego

Are you a veteran? Do you live in (or near) San Diego? If so, read on.

We try to keep up on any and all veteran-specific corporate hiring initiatives. Today we're sharing an effort we recently came across taking place in the San Diego area. Qualcomm, the technology company, is guaranteeing jobs to "post 9/11 veterans."

Now the guarantee isn't for a permanent position. But the company is committing to paid training for veterans followed by 6 months of full time employment. If all goes well, the company says, permanent employment would follow the 6 month period. 

We found this story on a San Diego new site, which has further details about the program, including the fact that all interested veterans must apply by the end of December. Read the news story and visit Qualcomm for more.
