What kinds of hand gestures are appropriate in job interviews?
Some hand gesture guidelines for job-seekers:
- Gestures should be subdued, but make sure you have some gestures.
- Smaller than for a presentation and not distracting.
- If you can’t keep from talking with your hands and using big, distracting gestures, keep hands in lap or hold pen.
The key takeaway here is that too many hand gestures — or too big hand gestures — are distracting to the interviewer.
