I recruit for ERP specialists Ireland wide. (functional analysts, ERP implementation/migrations/change specialists, ERP Technical Architects etc)
Make a good first impression with everyone you meet from CTO to receptionist. Employers are always interested as to how applicants treat staff members. One could easily throw away their dream job if you’re rude to any of the staff. It goes back to the old adage “If you want to know what a person is truly like, judge how they treat their lesser not their equals”.
Employers rank first impressions as the second most important factor after work experience when considering a candidate and it is very rare a first impression will be dislodged. Key factors to remember to ensure you put across your best self are: appropriate dress, smile, make eye contact, confident hand shake, be aware of posture and be aware of body language ie. Leaning slightly towards the interviewer displays interest in what the person is saying.
