  5. 5. EMPLOYERS NOTICE!▪ We’ve all heard it, “You only get one chance to make a 1st Impression.”▪ You are not the only game in town, so practice beating the interview competition.▪ Learning Example: ▪ You go to the grocery store. You have a selection of canned vegetables. One of the can’s has a dent. You pick over it and chose the nicer looking can with no dents. ▪ Moral: If you are going to pick over a dented can won’t other people do the same?▪ Dress to impress so you are the one that is picked. A nice enough suit will cover up any “dents”. DRESS TO IMPRESS!

HERE’S LOOKING AT YOU!▪ Ask a friend to critique your clothing before you leave for the interview or to attend a job fair.▪ No matter what type of job you want, or that you get an interview for, dress for success. Go back to Slide #3…at least business casual.HARD FACT #1: How we dress also says a lot about how we see ourselves. If I believe I am successful I will look successful.HARD FACT #2: An employer wants to believe in you and he or she can only believe what they see. The first impression YOU GIVE THEM needs to be better than your competition. DRESS FOR SUCCESS!
