First Impressions

First impressions.

Two of the most underrated words when it comes to job searching. Everyone has heard the phrase “You only get one shot to make a great first impression” and as much as that is true, a lot of people fail to realize that the phrase doesn’t just apply to the person interviewing you.

At Friday, we work collaboratively to help you find the perfect employee or the perfect employment opportunity. Our staff work as a team and each member is just as valuable to our operations as the next. Every day our recruiters interview candidates for roles. The interviewee will check in at reception and wait to meet with the recruiter. Every so often a candidate will come in and treat the receptionist with disrespect only to politely smile when the recruiter comes out to meet with him or her. This behaviour does not go unnoticed and could cost that person a potential job offer.

Situations like these don’t just happen at our company. A co-worker sent me this article from CNET Magazine today. The headline reads “Developer curses at man on subway, meets him again in job interview” ( The headline alone paints a pretty clear picture. No matter where you go and no matter who you meet, always strive to make a positive lasting first impression. You never know how those connections can impact your future.
