Job Search Tip: The Limp Fish Handshake

July 26th, 2011 | Interviewing | No Comments »

It’s every interviewer’s worst nightmare. They go to shake your hand, introducing themselves and asking how you are, and in return they receive your limp hand that’s barely worth shaking.

What does a limp fish handshake say about your character? It certainly doesn’t portray confidence or professionalism.

So get firm with yourself and put some muscle into those handshakes. It will show that you’re serious about the job and are ready to give it all you’ve got. It will make your first impression on the interviewer much more positive, and will set a better tone for the whole interview.
