    These are some great tips to ensure that you're have a great body language in an interview. Shaking your hand with confidence is particularly important because it shows that you're willing and quite confident in the job. Keep a smile to make sure that you're really interested in the job. Keeping your back straight shows that you to make sure that you're in a comfortable position. Employers and interviewers hate that you are moving your hands about in the interview, so I suggest you end up keeping your hands still.
