Overview - The First and Lasting Impression

Being the most qualified candidate does not guarantee you the job! There are many factors that cause a candidate to receive a job offer. Each Hiring Manager is different in this selection process. A Hiring Manager many have several interviews in one day. As he/she reflects on the time spent with each candidate - the candidate that made the most solid, lasting, impression is
always remembered.

The first interview is usually more of a disqualified than a qualifying interview. You will be observed, asked a few questions. The answerers to these questions usually determine whether or not you are invited back for a 2nd interview. The next six (6) pages are not about your experience or your skill set. They are about how to be the "Most Impressionable Candidate"; this is what makes the lasting impression on the Hiring Manager.
