The saying goes, “you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression”. Before we give you a few tips on how you can make a great first impression, please think about the traits of others you’ve recently met for the first time that you really liked! Were they interested in you as a person? Were they engaged in getting to know you? Did they ask you questions? Did they complement you? Did they look good, smell nice, dress cool? How about someone you recently met that you didn’t really click with. What was it about that person that didn’t work for you? Maybe they avoided eye contact with you? Did they talk about themselves the entire time without regarding to ask you questions? Did they seem insecure or stuck up?
