They say first impressions count and this is certainly supported by an infograph of a survey of 2000 bosses, recently released by the Career Development Association of Australia (CDAA). So how would you impress a potential new boss in 90 seconds? First start with a simple smile and make eye contact, as these are highlighted as the most common mistakes interviewee’s don’t do! Surprisingly 70% of the interviewed bosses said that they did not want to see applicants neither fashionable or trendy – and yet 65% say that clothes would be the deciding factor between two equally matched candidates. Confused? ‘Love Your Works’ simple advice – research the industry you’re applying to work in -dress accordingly -for example the on trend denim might be ‘cool’ in advertising … less appealing at a Big 4 bank!
