First impressions are CRITICAL in a job interview. A significant part of the hiring decision is made based on non-verbal cues, including handshake, eye contact, clothing, and grooming. Read the Dress for Success guide for tips on dressing professionally to ensure you make a positive first impression.
The purpose of an interview is to build a favorable impression and clearly communicate to an employer the value you will bring to the company. It is an exchange of information: namely yours (your education, experience, related skills) and theirs (job details, corporate culture). Successful interviewing is a skill that is developed through preparation and practice.
Thank you notes can make a difference in the hiring process. You can make an outstanding impression by following up in a timely manner with Thank-You notes, both electronically and through the mail.
