Good morning. It’s Wednesday August 15, 2018 and this is your first early morning Jobs briefing!

In today’s Jobs news: Discovery and Science are on the lookout for a marketing strategy expert; Peacock Productions has an opening for a director of development for factual; and Brendan Yam was named VP and GM of Viacom Digital Studios International.

You know you need to offer a solid handshake when you start a job interview. What other body language tips help make a good impression? 
  1. Express yourself with hand gestures, but don’t overdo it. You want to emphasize your points, not distract from them.
  1. You posture should indicate confidence. If you sit up too straight you risk looking nervous – lean in at points during the conversation to show you’re interested and listening, not just plotting your next question. 
  1. Smile! Avoid nervous laughter, but a smile shows you’re enthusiastic and want to hear more.
