First Impressions: Guidelines for Job Interviews

It goes without saying that first impressions count for a lot.  Not just in business, but also in life.  A first impression is made within the first four seconds of meeting someone and cannot be taken back.  There are no mulligans in first impressions.  You never have a second chance to make a first impression.  But what is involved in a first impression?  Is it what we are wearing?  The way we carry ourselves?  Maybe even our speech; viz., not just what we say but how we saying it (tone, enunciation, grammar, etc.). 

Finding the Right Job

When looking for the perfect job for you, it is imperative that you look at all the aspects of your new career.  Don’t jump at the first opportunity you receive, because it may not be the best fit.  You should also not select the highest paying opportunity, as it may not be the best fit for you personally.   Weigh all the options and take the time to consider which job is the best for you.

Interviewing Strategies in Business

All businesses need employees.  However, finding employees that work well for your business can be a challenge.  The employees have to be competent, but they also need to be a good fit with your company’s morals, values, and dynamics.  Having an action plan that addresses key components during the interview process will help ensure the right people are working for you.  Spending the time developing interview strategies is a great investment in hiring quality people that will take your business to the next level.
