First Impressions

217625680_917be60fdc_mThe young man drove an hour to the interview.  He walked in and announced he was here to interview with Human Resources.  No one knew he was coming for the interview - what do you think his first impression of the company was?

Even better, the VP of Operations set up the interview and told no one.  Then he walked up when the young man arrived said hello and walked away - another great impression.

This company may have blown an opportunity to hire a star performer.  Do you have similar stories? 

It is human nature that first impressions impact us tremendously and that changing that first impression is not just a simple snap of the fingers.  I would encourage you conduct an evaluation on what type of first impression does your company make?

Remember you only get one shot.  If you do it wrong, you will loose customers and employees.
