Our topic for Friday 31 March is “Opening the Interview – How to make a great first and second impression.” I will explain how and why employers make their initial decision on your candidacy before your butt hits the seat in the interview room. No pressure, huh?
Make a good impression, and the interviewers will spend the rest of the time affirming their good judgement. Make a poor impression, and you will spend the rest of the interview trying to change their minds. Which position would you rather be in?
You will learn the three things you absolutely, positively must do to win them over before they start firing questions at you. We will also teach and practice the one true differentiator that will set you apart from your competition – and set the tone for the entire meeting.
To be better prepared for the meeting on Friday, bring a job lead with you – hopefully for an upcoming interview, but at least for a specific job you’d love to land.
