First things first

Posted: Sunday, February 25, 2007

Research suggests if an interviewer forms a negative impression of you within the first five minutes, your chance of landing a job offer approaches zilch. Michael Farr, author of "Seven Steps to Getting a Job Fast" (Jist, $8.95), offers these tips to help you get off to a good start: Be early; dress and groom like the interviewer is likely to be dressed; be kind and respectful to the receptionist; follow the interviewer's lead in the first few minutes; do some homework on the company beforehand; make a good impression before you arrive by making your resume and cover letter free of errors.
