5 Ways to Make a GREAT First Impression

It only takes a glance, maybe five seconds for a person you meet for the first time to evaluate you. During that short time, their opinion about you can be influenced by your body language, appearance, demeanor, how you are dressed, and even your mannerisms. In most cases it is not easy to undo or reverse the first impression; this makes first impressions crucial since they tend to form the tone for all relationships that follow. So, whether it is in your social life or career, it is vital to know how to create a positive first impression. In this article, we look at some tips that will help you make a great first impression.

1. Be punctual

Whether you are going for a job interview or a business meeting, being on time is a must. You should live by the saying, “if you’re on time you are late if you’re early you’re on time.” Always make a point of getting to the interview venue at least 30 minutes early; this allows you ample time to get used...

Want the job? Break the rules.

Have you ever wondered why you’re not hearing back about your job applications? You’re not alone. A candidate recently sent us a message on Yelp wondering why, despite her many qualifications, she was not getting any interviews. After reviewing her situation, I realized that this person was making the biggest mistake that I see over and over again. And if you’re not landing job offers, you are probably making it too.  You’re following the rules. The biggest mistake job seekers make is doing the expected - over and over again - and expecting unexpected, extraordinary results. That’s just not how it works. If you want to gain the attention of a recruiter or hiring manager who is reviewing READ MORE

The Questions You MUST Ask in an Interview

You have researched the company and the position you are interviewing for, you have studied how not to blow the interview, and you have prepared your answers to common interview questions – all of which is important, but in reality it’s the bare minimum. If you want to stand out from the crowd you must ask great questions, thereby demonstrating your interest and connecting with the interviewer on a personal level and determining if it’s even the job you want!   Ultimately a job interview is a two-way street. Of course, your primary objective of the ...

If you’re on time, you’re late.

We are trained “clock watchers.”  So why do so many of us have difficulty in showing up to meetings on time?  And are we fully aware of the adverse, potentially disastrous consequences on our business relationships? Consider the consequences of showing up early. It’s the complete antithesis of the impression that you will create if you show up late.  It will set you apart, provide you with a significant competitive advantage and create a winning mindset (and, if replicated contribute to a very important aspect of company culture). Additionally, the rather dramatic consequences of being late (especially if it's habitual) are inversely related to the relative ease with which the problem can be addressed and reversed. Read on to learn:
  • Why chronic tardiness stunts your career growth
  • Simple steps to reverse the behavior
  • A simple mantra for showing up 'on time, fully engaged and fully prepared' - every time

An Inside Look at the Hottest Tech Job of 2016

Move over, Data Scientists. We predict Cybersecurity Professionals will have the most sought-after technology skills in San Diego this year. For some this may come as a surprise. Much of the work Cybersecurity Professionals do takes place behind the scenes – especially when things go well. It’s when things aren’t going well, however, that the mission-critical nature of this profession becomes exceedingly clear. Now-infamous data breaches at Target, Anthem, the IRS and Ashley Madison reveal just how important a company’s cybersecurity is. As corporations scramble to protect their private information from hackers and other online threats, the demand for skilled 'Cyber' talent is heating up. A recent Stanford Journalism report predicts demand for Information Security (InfoSec) Analysts and other Cybersecurity Professionals will grow by 53...
