A successful interview depends very heavily upon making a good first impression.
With the exception of your written application and your visible presence, the interviewer knows nothing about who you are or what kind of skills you have. Combine that with the fact that your interviewer has a limited amount of time to spend with you,
and it is easy to see that a good first impression is critical.
The following do’s and don’ts may be simple, but they are important reminders if you hope to make a good first impression and land the job of your choice. You may want to read them over several times leading up to your interview and once again before
departing for it. Good luck!
Remember: Making a good first impression is critical. The job is yours to gain or lose over other applicants, so present your best effort. Don’t forget to smile!
