It is said handshakes are exchanged more the currency. It takes only five seconds to make an impression, so why not make it right! Your handshake speaks volumes – it may say, “I’m standoffish,” “I’m overbearing,” “I’m insecure,” or “I’m confident and glad to meet you.” The handshake that is confident and positive is one that is a web-to-web shake. In other words, the web between your thumb and index finger should touch the other person’s web. It should not be a fingertip handshake or a limp handshake. It should be firm but not bone crushing. Send the professional impression from the start by following these simple steps to a great handshake.
