First impressions always count. They have a major role in how the employer will view you as a candidate. What you say in the first moment will often say a lot about you and give the employer a hint about whether or not to hire you.
Most managers actually make the decision to hire someone judging by the first impressions they get by talking in the first few moments. Sometimes it’s all on what the candidate did or didn’t do when they met. Because of this, leadership speakers say that it is very important to observe interview manners and to tread carefully through how you introduce yourself during the interview.
When you get to the interview, make sure you introduce yourself to the receptionist. Simply give your name and the reason you are there. It is essential that you know the name of the interviewer. It will help the receptionist check your appointment faster.
If, by chance, the hiring manager comes out to meet you, take the initiative and introduce yourself with a smile and this time, make sure you mention how much you appreciate meeting them or the opportunity to be interviewed.
Leadership speaker Andy Core says that first impressions may determine whether you will get the job or not.
