Mirroring. Copy your interviewer's subtle mannerisms, pace of speech, tone of voice.

I do this all the time with people I meet in business. It's highly influential, because it gives the other person a false sense of agreement and friendship.

Everyone has facial hair in my office except one guy. Not sure I would've been hired without it. :-)

At least shave your balls... that way, you know, if your interview turns into a pr0n video, you're good to go.

We need to become best friends.

 

it WOULD be cool to have an old-school pen pal...says the guy who currently only has a mailing address nearly 300 miles away since I just rebooted my life today with this job.

 

I hope you get it.  I just wouldn't stress about it.  Be at ease, be yourself, don't worry; if you don't get this, you may get something else.

Only do this if you can pull it off whole sounding and looking genuine. I would not recommend trying this for the first tine in a job interview. May not go over too well.

But that being said, there is a lot you can glen and do from their mannerisms.

For instance, if they appear very driven and direct, sitting back passively can come across as uninterested and lazy. But, if they are more of a cerebral introvert, being aggressive and gung ho in the interview could also come across as too "in your face".

Best advice is to be yourself.

Putting on an act may get you a job. But, you won't keep it for long if the fit is not right.
