How to Make a Great First Impression at Job Interview

One of the keys to success in interviewing for a job is your first impression. Here are some tips for your review before going for a job interview:

  1. Keep yourself fit.  This does not mean your physical shape. Your energy level must be in a good shape such as if you look tired, it could lead to bad impression.
  2. Timing. Few things give a worse impression than showing up late for an important meeting. Allow yourself plenty of time to get to the interview in case you have trouble finding the office.
  3. Send Clear signals. Your appearance immediately communicates to other people. You should look neat and presentable as well as dress appropriately for the job you are interviewing
  4. Greeting. The first handshake is a key part in giving a good first impression.
  5. Good use of body language. Make sure your body language during the interview projects a professional image such as eye contact, facial expression, and posture.
  6. Thank you. Always send a thank you note not just for good manner but to get the job.
