What you are saying in a job interview may not be coming out of your mouth. Experts agree that non-verbal elements such as appearance,Chandler Hill: Body Language Can Make or Break Interviews Articles posture and eye contact can account for 60 percent of what you're communicating in a job interview.

"Confidence is probably the number one factor that employers are looking for in an interviewee," said Hugh Priddy, senior campaign manager for Chandler Hill Partners, a career advancement and job search firm. "Most people are communicating their confidence more by their body clues than by what they are saying."

Chandler Hill Partners' professional career consultants suggest that jobseekers always present a professional image while interviewing regardless of the nature of the interview. "Unless you are told not to dress formally-a business suit shows your respect for the person to whom you are speaking," said Priddy.

A firm handshake and looking the interviewer in the eye are only the first step in the communication of confidence. An interviewee must be aware of what he or she is doing and be able to listen clearly to the questions being asked. Chandler Hill Partners suggests that jobseekers practice responding to interview questions in front of a mirror or conduct mock interviews in front of a video camera.

"Preparation is the key to winning interviews," said Priddy. "You must be aware of what you are saying, what you are doing and what the person in front of you is asking."
