13 木 Lesson1 First Impressions (5)
You should give the impression that you’ve given each question serious and thoughtful consideration-even
if you think the questions are inane and obvious.
One thing that creates a poor impression
when I meet someone for the first time is an unprofessional-sounding email address.
I met a woman at a networking party the other day whose email address was “sugarpie1212.”
That’s highly unprofessional.
Anyone who’s serious about networking uses a sober-sounding email address. Using your real name is recommended.
I was somewhat surprised that not everyone sends a thank-you note after interviews.
If you want to stand out among the candidates, the least you can do is write a thank-you note to a potential employer.
I’d send a handwritten one.
I’m OK with a digital think-you, but it’s more difficult to throw away a sincere handwritten note.
It also gives a candidate a chance to remind the interviewer of their interest in the job on offer
and how their qualifications will help the company succeed.
Remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
