You never get a second chance to make a good first impression, especially when it comes to job interviews.
A good interviewer won't jump to conclusions. Sadly a lot of the time those interviewing accountants for roles often have limited experience.
As a result they can often make their mind up quickly about a candidate. Then spend the rest of the interview looking for evidence to back up their initial assessment.
For that reason you have to be ready to make a good first impression when it comes to job interviews.
In the short video below I share some thoughts on making a good first impression in job interviews.
In summary since 2006 I’ve worked with in excess of 6,000 accountants and professionals in workshops, seminars and one to one helping them achieve career success and become better leaders and presenters. Before that I spent 25 years in accountancy climbing the career ladder from Payments Clerk to FD. I’m a CIMA Fellow, Certified Professional Coach and Team Coach Facilitator.
