First Impressions - A Second Look

Synopsis
A complete remake of the 2004 programme FIRST IMPRESSIONS - A SECOND LOOK, covering basic interview skills for quite inexperienced, younger candidates. There is a lot of evidence that many recruiters make decisions in the very first few minutes of interviews, based more on intangible "gut feel" first impressions of people rather than specific answers to questions. Creating the right first impression - and maintaining it throughout the interview - is what this video is designed to achieve.Through dramatisations, the video covers the areas of: researching the company; planning what you want to get across; preparing for tricky questions; the practicalities of getting to the interview on time; personal grooming and presentation; demeanor and mannerisms; basic body language. The video contains 100 separate, easy to grasp training points which are expanded upon in the accompanying "Training Notes" booklet.
