Tips for Making a Good 1st Impression & The Greatest Place to Work Sweepstakes {+ $25 Walmart GC Giveaway!}

disclosure compensated post

Making a good first impression can be huge.  Whether you’re an employee headed to your first day on the job or meeting your significant other’s family for the first time, that first impression you make can lay the ground work for the future.

A few tips to help ensure that first impression is a good one:

  • Be yourself.  It a high-stress situation {such as meeting someone for the first time} it’s easy to feel anxious and not act like yourself.  The thing is– others can generally see right through this and that won’t leave a very good impression on them.
  • Be on time.  Tardiness never makes a good impression, especially when you’re meeting someone for the first time.  I like to leave earlier than I think I need to, just in case something unexpected {usually traffic} holds me up.  That way I can still be on time.
  • Care about your appearance.  I’m not saying to go out and buy new clothes.  I am saying to look well-groomed and make sure your clothes don’t look like you fished them out from a pile on the floor.  I am fully aware that outward appearances really don’t matter, but the truth is that a clean and put together exterior will go a long way.  People do judge a book by it’s cover, especially where first impressions are concerned.

The new movie The Internship documents this first impression quite well.  As an intern, your life is full of first impressions, as you’re meeting many people within the company and field within which you’re working.
