Etiquette, in general terms, is often defined as a code of "polite conduct and proper behavior." It refers to the rules that indicate the "proper and polite way to behave" to avoid offending or annoying other people. Job interview etiquette is no different. A successful job interview begins long before the initial meeting. Research, planning, effort and preparation must first take place prior to the first handshake. No matter the type of meeting- in person, telephone, over the internet, business meal, etc.- you need to make a positive and memorable impression. Because you want the job you have to impress the interviewer, not just with your skills, experience and other qualifications, but the overall package- that is YOU.

In this seminar we'll help you identify ways that will make you stand out and appear confident and in control from you cover letter to your thank you note.
