What are recruiters looking for in that minute-and-a-half? Here are some important data points from an infographic from CollegeAtlas.org that shows exactly what can make or break your opportunity to impress a recruiter quickly:
- The way you dress, act and walk through the door (55%)
- The quality of your voice, grammar and confidence (38%)
- The tendency to be overly-fashionable or trendy (70%)
Take a look at this fun infographic, which contains 34 tips for your next job interview. Then adjust your job interview strategy – from how you dress to how you articulate your relevant work experience – so you can pass the 90-second test!
