So I managed to fracture my right hand and I have two interviews scheduled before I get the cast off. Any tips for the awkward handshake and looking presentable while I'm limited?
Sorry to hear that. Senator Bob Dole had a war injury to his right arm from WWII so it was paralyzed and he shakes with his left hand. I think you would do best by extending your left hand as you enter the room and then make the up and down motion quick to the point. Practice with friends and family.
No interviewer will hold the broken hand against you, but they will probably all ask about it, so you'll have at least one easy topic of conversation. Hopefully there's a good story.
