Interview Tips: First Impressions are Key!

Interviews are probably the single most important step in the job search process.  Proper preparation is critical.  In order to interview well, order you need to be able to know what you have to offer, what an employer is seeking, and the kind of opportunity you want.  Being able to answer questions succinctly with relevant, precise examples in a conversational manner (not stilted or forced) is key.

The good news is that there are many things you can do that can dramatically improve your chances for success.  How you present yourself and the initial impression you make is critical — and many of these factors are within your control.

First Impressions are Important!

Many interviewers will know right off the bat whether they will like you or not.  This is because much of the interview depends on the first impression - the initial few minutes they spend with you.  What do you want the recruiter to think of you as?  Prepared? Confident? Energetic? Reponsible? Part of making a good impression is how you approach the interview.  Plan on arriving 10 minutes early. Dress appropriately and avoid any “loud” fashion that draws attention to yourself. Avoid cologne or perfume that is distracting. Smile, act natural, and make good eye contact.
