In the recent years, the Interview procedure all over the world has significantly changed. From the practice of one interviewer nowadays, about 4-5 interviewers are judging the suitability of a candidate for that particular post. The companies are not just focusing on the academic of the candidate but also the non-verbal signals that an individual emits during an interview. Few companies are going overboard in this field and they are taking the help of a psychologist for conducting the interviews.
In this current scenario, many candidates face the problem of how to greet multiple interviewers or how to greet a panel of interviewers. So, today let’s discuss the various way in which you can greet more than one interviewer.

Another problem in wishing each and everyone is that if the seniormost person is not sitting in starting or centre then you might end up wishing him/her at the very last and he/she could feel offended by this.
