A first impression on the interviewer helps the interviewee to impress the members who are taking the interview. It is necessary for the candidate to prepare for the interview beforehand so that he can make a good first impression. With a good first impression the interviewer goes slow with the interview asking him questions which might possibly help him enter the arena. Moreover even if the interviewee is not able to answer certain questions properly, then the first impression would make up for the interviewee so that he gets successful (Ronald 2002).
In order to make the first impression appealing it is necessary for a candidate to be prepared. Appearance is counted as the first factor to impress the interviewer as when an individual enters the room of interview his appearance is the first thing which is to be noticed by everyone. Secondly his resume also works toward the first impression by allowing the interviewer to gain an insight into the qualifications of the candidate. The resume should be brief and well organized so that the interviewer can get grasp of all the important things. And thirdly it is necessary for a candidate to reach on time for interviews as it would create a good first impression on the interviewer (Renee 2007).
By following all the protocols of an interview the candidate can be sure that he will make a good impression. A good impression in the current economy helps individuals to get jobs which are otherwise difficult to take. The interviewer judges the candidate from his very first impression and this might be the key to success for the candidate. A good first impression would also help the interviewer to know much about the interviewee as it is important in relation to the aspects of the job. Coming on time, right appearance and the right resume would create a balanced first impression which would help the interviewer to know that the person is fit to work in the position he has applied for (Bloch 1997; Ronald 2002).
