6 木 Lesson1 First Impressions (6)
What does a fashion marketing manager do, exactly?
Well, in Bill’s case, the position includes a broad range of responsibilities in creating advertising and public relations campaigns and branding strategies. Bill said he may have to travel quite a lot to prepare for new store openings and customer events.
I assume A&A is looking for someone to replace Bill?
Of course. Lidia has lined up several candidates for job interviews.
So I hope to find a new addition to our staff pretty soon.
Lidia, you said that Bill makes a good first impression. How important is that in the selection process?
And how long does it take for someone to register a first impression?
I read somewhere that s seasoned recruiter needs only three seconds. What do you think?
One study that got a lot of attention when it came out a few years ago said it only takes 100 milliseconds,
or one-tenth of a second, for a skilled HR practitioner to form a first impression.
But now research shows that it takes about seven seconds.
Yes, that’s what I hear too.
