The 2-Minute Drill: Make Your Way Through the Interview's Crucial First Moments

Best Case

Joann feels prepared and confident as she waits in the lobby for her interviewer. She knows she looks good, and she feels good. She has practiced and prepared and knows she can do this job. She’ll concentrate on selling herself as the solution to the employer’s problems. As her interviewer approaches, she stands and continues to smile, looking directly at him. She looks him in the eye as she extends her hand. She gives a firm shake and smiles. “This is a very confident woman — someone who shows real promise,” thinks the interviewer. The first impression has been made, and it is a positive one.
