How To Make A Great First Impression
When it comes to starting a new job, walking into an interview or meeting someone new, first impressions count. How to handle yourself and how to behave are all key to making a great first impression and in this article, we’ll take a look at 3 key points when it comes to making that memorable first impression.
Making a great first impression you may think is made up of some fundamental basics, however, there are many ways that you can make a great impression. Let's get straight into it with point number 1…
Be warm and show empathy
When walking into a room and meeting new people it’s important to be warm, welcoming and empathetic. All of these traits make you immediately more likeable and can help people gravitate towards you. When it comes to an interview environment, yourself as a person is considered as highly as your knowledge of the role in question so consider your approach in the interview room.
Have a positive outlook
Having a positive approach is the key to success. When starting a new job, tackling it head-on in a positive manner is the key to success. Equally taking a positive approach can help you integrate better with a team. Positivity is infectious and any negative attitudes can quickly affect a whole team. No one likes a negative influence so being positive and upbeat is the best way forward.
Have your time management nailed
Our final point is around time management. Whenever you are going for an interview or starting a new job, being on time is of paramount importance. You need to start as you mean to go on and being late without reason is always going to raise concerns.
