Of Body Language and Sloppy Speaking Singapore's views on job interviews should be as clear as glass to all of you, at this point. We've already posted tons of articles on how you as a job seeker can ace yours with ease. Last month, we talked about first impression in relation to the success of your job hunting. Last january was when we shared our complete interview tips for job seekers.

And we're not finished yet, mind you. There's just so many things to write about job interviews. We find sub topics to share to our followers every day. Yesterday's post was about job interviews, right? We'll ride the same boat today and give you more tips to perfect your next interview appointments. Only, it will focus on body language and why sloppy speaking is a sure-fire way to trash your chances (no sarcasm intended) this time.

Self confidence is our favorite concept for this month. And why is that? It's because it's the simplest way to describe what we want job seekers to do during their interviews. Self confidence is equals to poise and clear speaking. In other words, it's the key to proper body language and speaking. Let JobsDB SG tell you, the way in which you speak will show important information about you. Sloppy speaking will not bring you and your job search any good. Even if you're the nervous type, try to speak clearly and avoid filling words.

Why should you counter your nervousness? Because it will push you to create disturbing actions while you're being interviewed. Your body language will reach an opinion about you. Showing signs that you're nervous will definitely trash your chances up so watch carefully the tense parts of your body e.g. your hands and feet. You don't want to be judged as someone who cannot handle pressure, right?, our training arm, has an article that gives an in depth discussion on body language. Though this is about making presentations, reading is still to your advantage. You can read it here.
