Unwritten Rules of Life: First Meeting Matters

A Short First Meeting Is All too Crucial to Getting Hired.

The first interview with a potential employer is normally short, sweet, and to the point. It can be as short as fifteen minutes but is absolutely critical in enabling the employer to make any further investment of time or money in you. Onboarding is an expensive process and the limited time frame of the first interview should illustrate that very clearly.

Given the short nature of the first interview many people might take it lightly. Please don’t fall into this trap and let this episode be a quick reminder of the importance of this part of the process. From do’s and don’ts to a commonly used first interview architecture called the 4C’s we provide you with some tips and tricks to land you that next interview.
