How should you greet and shake hands with your interviewer?
Greet your interviewer enthusiastically:
- Stand up and extend your hand for the handshake.
- Medium-to-firm handshake — no dead fish, no bone-crusher, and no sweaty palms.
- Ultra-warm smile
- Direct eye contact
- “Good morning, I’m glad to meet you” and “Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a candidate for this position.”
