Do Interviewers Give Off Signs?

Dear Experts, When in an interview, are there any physical or verbal signs the interviewer can emit that will show what she/he is thinking? I want to know if there's anything I can look out for that will let me know how I'm doing. Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#414 Head nodding or a thoughtful smile is always a good sign an interviewer is listening / thinking. (@tmonhollon) Q#414 Interviewer's impressions are like porn-you know it when you see it! Focus on being in the moment. (@marysevinsky) Q#414 One sign: Interviewer talks too much about co; generally means they're trying to "sell you" on co/job. (@teenarose) Q#414 Try not to spend your time looking for signals. Instead, focus your energy on giving the best interview possible. (@gradversity) Q#414 A good clue is in the length of the interview itself. If I like someone, I keep them engaged / talking longer. (@EmilyBennington) Q#414 Interviewers R people too. Read them like U would any one else. Best "defense" is preparation. Be interesting & engaging. ( @DawnBugni) Q#414 Depends on recruiter, stage your in. Usually good signs: they lean 4ward, make eye contact, laugh w/ you. (@juliaerickson) Q#414 Some do and some don't. One of my HR coworkers can keep a straight face. I can't. :-) (@beneubanks) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the interview situation one of our viewers, Remi submitted. He was in an interview and was asked the question: How many cows are there in Canada right now? - What a weird question but this is a technique that some hiring managers are using these days.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Kevin submitted. He is a college student who's working a part time job to make ends meet. The manager/owner of the company has become a micro-manager who watches him work on camera and reads his company emails. A bit over the top wouldn't you say?
