This is an Interview for Pete’s Sake!

I recently interviewed a candidate who sat across from me with his seat pushed back from the table and a foot on the seat of the chair. During the interview, he told me that his current boss was “annoying, but it is probably because I slept with her.”

The inappropriate disclosure of his sexual activities coupled with overly casual body language was enough to tell me he was not our guy. Don’t underestimate what body language can tell you.
