“There is no second chance to make a good first impression” as many scholars suggest, most of the opportunities in our careers and lives happen not just because of our sheer talent and skills alone ,but by an excellent first opinion that we frame in our situations. Luckily making an excellent first impression in our instances isn’t that hard if we follow some crucial aspects. Here we tried to elucidate a few of them for your practice.
Keep Calm and Listen first.
People often like to be heard more and particularly in business discussions and interview situations it by far most the vital etiquette to have. A good listener is an excellent strategist and can judge cases better than a single-minded person with inconsiderate views to others opinions. So during interviews by being a good listener, it may literally send a message that you give equal importance to others opinions which create a perfect first impression in the panel’s views.

A Pleasant Smile
A Smile is just so beautiful and priceless that it can almost make or break an opportunity. It is a natural way of expressing our approach ability, mood, and being positive. A smile can open a healthy flow of conversation, and it can happen quickly as it paves an easy way for someone to approach you and begin a discussion. Particularly in interview situations, it casts a charm of our positive image easily. Also, you know what! It doesn’t cost a penny to have this. So, kindly try to carry a pleasant smile on our face the next time at an interview!

Remember their names, please!
A name is an ideal form of reckoning a person. As we humans mostly remember situations in images, we mostly tend to often forget names than the circumstances and physical traits more, from our first interactions. Also, it is an obvious fact that we all like to be remembered more , recognized well and not associating names correctly upsets the other person in such meetings. So a simple act of being more wakeful in remembering your fellow person’s name is another good way to make a good impression in our situations or interviews.
Please be courteous & well mannered
Mostly a proper conduct and good manners go hand in hand. “Please, Sorry, Thank you, Welcome …“, though these words sound very routine, they never get old when it comes to creating a courteous impression of yours in the other person’s views. They convey in a way, your sense of empathy to the social situation and give a perfect first impression.
Always Be On Time
Time is one of the most precious and perishable recourse that everyone has. While attempting for a first-time presentation of yours always try to be “In Time “or at least “On time.” The advantages of it are multi-pronged and long-lasting. We all have unexpected delays and time misses happening regularly, but for the first instance sake, we need to be utmost diligent in managing the schedule. Being on time conveys a sublime message about our punctuality, discipline, interest in this endeavor, etc. all at one go
Be open-mindedly positive
A “No” takes away a lot of positive vibes from your mind, and a “Yes” fills you with much positive energy. Try to keep your thinking more prospective than retrospective in thoughts while heading to any first appointment. This clears the mental blocks if any in mind and will kind of preps you for a beautiful presentation of self.
