It doesn’t take long for a potential employer to assess if you’re suitable for the job within just the first few seconds of meeting them. Presentation is everything. Three of the most common interview mistakes are lack of eye contact, inappropriate clothing, and appearing disinterested. If you act like you don’t want to be there, they’re not going to want you there working for them.
What people can tend to forget is that this is your one and only first impression, so you want to make the most of it. Yeah, you want to be professional, but be friendly and approachable at the same time. This could be your potential employer so the more you get on with them now the more chance of you building a working relationship with them.
So relax, smile and try(!) to enjoy the experience as much as possible.
Remember one door closes, another opens!
