Before heading into an interview, you probably spend lots of time preparing. You print extra copies of your resume, you prep your outfit, and you feel ready for almost every interview question that may be thrown at you.

However, those small quirks can become big mistakes in an interview if you’re unaware of them. Flip through CraftCV’s SlideShare before going to your next interview so you can keep all these body language messages in mind.
