How do you shake a female interviewers hand? Firm just as you would a male, or do you lighten up?

    Don't shake hands, don't talk directly to her, don't pay attention. If possible, ask for sandwich.

    P.S.: if there is another male analyst, make sure to ask him "who is this wideclop anyways?"

    Tell her to get in the kitchen and make you some fucking brownies. But in all seriousness, treat her no differently (other than talking about how you'd bang the girl in HR or the secretary).

    On a serious note, if this is a serious question, you want to shake her hand the same way you would shake a man's hand - don't be a bone crusher, and don't treat it like a d*ck measuring contest - she won't be impressed if you hurt her hand anymore than I would if you were shaking my hand. Give a firm handshake that shows your in the room and confident, but don't hurt the person (yes person, male or female). A relaxed, firm handshake goes a long way - use it.

    I choose my doctors based on their handshake
