In every job interview, every candidate tries to create the best impressions in front of an interviewer. Your body language, your dressing style, and how you answer their questions have a much more significant impact on whether you’ll be hired or not but there are also few psychological tricks that can help you to crack a job interview.

Act confident

When you come off as confident, authentic, passionate, comfortable, and enthusiastic, interviewers are more likely to hire you and it increases your chances of getting selected.

Mirror your interviewer’s body language

To appear more likable, trustworthy, and empathetic is by mirroring your interviewer. It happens when you match another person’s expressions of non-verbal communication, like body language, gestures, vocal pitch, etc.

Repeat things back

At first, you listen and try to understand what a person is saying, and then you paraphrase what they said to confirm you understood and emphasise their point.

Ask for a higher salary

When the subject of pay finally comes around, it is the time to encounter an irrelevant number for asking a million-dollar salary because the hiring manager may not give you the same amount but it can increase your offer by more than 10%.
