I came across an interesting study recently that links successful interviewing with a firm handshake. Believe it or not the people with the best handshakes, men and women, are more “hireable”.
What makes for a firm handshake? According to the researchers, good handshakes involve:
-a firm, complete grip
-vigorous up and down movement.
If you’re not sure the quality of your handshake, test it out. Shake a few hands and see if the person gets a more or less favorable impression of you. Find out how to improve your handshake and you may just improve your chances of landing your next job.
