Job interview tips: Strong handshake is just the beginning !!

Maybe your handshake indicates that your an overbearing jerk . An handshake that creates a favorable impression. We’re going to talk about how to do that.
There are three keys to a successful handshake
1.    How you do it
2.    When you do it
3.    Where you do it

How you do it

§  Make sure your handshake is firm. 
§  However, you don’t want to crush the other person’s hand.
§  If your hands are sweaty, give them a quick nonchalant wipe on your pants.
§  When you offer your hand, look the person in the eye and smile.

When you do it

Handshakes involve timing.
Many people avoid offering handshakes because they’re afraid of being left hanging.
If you’re not sure if someone will notice your offer, extend the handshake anyways. Most of the time people will notice your handshake offer and quickly grasp your hand.
Be aware of different social customs. Most cultures have different customs for shaking hands. Some find it inappropriate for a man to shake a woman’s hand and some cultures find shaking hands completely unacceptable. Be sensitive to these situations.

Where to do it

Handshakes are good every where.
Make sure to shake plenty of hands when you go to a social gathering.

Make sure to shake the hosts’ hand when arriving and leaving the gathering.
