Snippets: first impressions

Job interviewers can usually tell whether or not you are an ideal candidate for the job within the first minute. It’s called the first impression. Your personal appearance, outfit, facial expressions and body language can make or break you. To make a great first impression, walk in with confidence but not cockiness, give a firm handshake and not a limp one, introduce yourself in a pleasurable tone of voice, make eye contact, sit up straight, show your enthusiasm and take a deep breath! Always dress for success with a nice pant or skirt suit, even if the position or job is casual. Lay low on heavy cologne, perfume and makeup. And whatever you do, don’t be late!
