They say you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Let DealDash help you make a great first impression.
Everyone needs to make a good first impression sometimes. Perhaps you’re on your way to a job interview, or maybe even a first date. Perhaps you’re further along and are planning on meeting your boyfriend or girlfriend’s parents. No matter what the situation, it’s always best to put your best first impression to the forefront and let your personality shine. Next up are some tips and tricks from DealDash to help you do just that.
Dress the Part
Firstly, it doesn’t matter which first impression situation that we are talking about, it’s always important to arrive clean and well-dressed. That doesn’t mean a ball gown or tuxedo, of course, but something neat, clean, and presentable.
Thus, in the case of a job interview, it’s said that the optimal way to dress for your interview is “one step above” what you would normally be wearing if you got the job. So, if the job calls for “business casual” such as a polo shirt and khaki pants, then you would want to wear a shirt and tie with a jacket. Of course, your results might vary, but it’s always wise to err on the side of more nicely dressed.
Put Yourself in Their Shoes
Next, making a good first impression is all about putting yourself in the other person’s shoes – how would you like to be treated if you were them. Thus, if you are meeting a serious boyfriend or girlfriend’s family for the first time at their home you might want to bring them a small gift such as a bottle of wine or some flowers. It will make them feel good and have a better opinion of you since you were putting yourself in their shoes and putting a lot of thought into the evening.
Don’t Skimp on Sleep
Finally, no matter what the situation calls for in making a good first impression, you need to be well-rested. Don’t skip the sleep if you have an important day the next day and plan on meeting new people. You’ll be on your “A” game if you get enough sleep and are well-rested. You’ll be more mentally alert and be able to think on your feet and remember things better as well. There’s no downside to getting enough rest.
