I’ve been told that when you meet someone new they form an opinion about you in less than 30 seconds. I’m not sure what the science is behind that statement but I tend to believe this is true with most people. That being said, you better be ready to make a great first impression or forever be known by that person as the guy with a wrinkled shirt or girl with lipstick on her teeth.
I think it is important for all of us to keep this in mind when going out into the world because you never know who you may meet at Starbucks that may be just the person that can help you get to that next level in your career. This is especially important for candidates we are sending out in the field. Not only does their first impression affect themselves but it also affects the recruiter, sales person, and ultimately Theoris. As a newer recruiter this is something I am going to have to keep in mind while sending out candidates. We all are hungry to get a placement but must remember our personal brand is on the line as well. I think a part of the challenge of this job is keeping that balance of a quick placement and the best placement. I am looking forward to learning the tricks of the trade and creating a great personal brand through the impressions I am able to make on those around me.
All of this being said yesterday was my first day here at Theoris. I was definitely impressed by everyone’s friendly and helpful attitude. I am excited to be a part of this team and learn from whomever I can! Thank you for the warm welcome!
