Interviews: Make a Good First Impression

It's all about the first few seconds. That's right, the first few seconds of an interview are a critical time.

Let's face it, the reason you're being called to attend the interview is because your CV/application showed you have the skills/experience to do the job. The big question, then, is are you the type of person they want on their team?

Studies show you have around seven seconds to make a good first impression. Not very long at all. But what's more alarming is that you have just 90 seconds to make 90 per cent of your lasting impression.

So, if you want to have better success at future interviews you should probably put a lot more thought into how you will present yourself in those first few vital seconds.
