We've all heard that you only have five minutes to make a good first impression and here's some evidence of exactly how employers look at you when you turn up for that job interview.

A POOR handshake and tardiness are just two of the reasons why jobseekers are failing to impress potential employers in interviews and these are two things that relate directly back to your BODY LANGUAGE.

A survey by employment law firm, Peninsula Ireland found that: 

* 89% of employers make up their mind about applicants within the first five minutes of an interview. 

* 78% of employers admitted having made a bad recruitment decision. 

* 66% of employers admit rejecting applicants because of a bad first impression. 

The survey also found that Irish employers found candidates not wearing business attire was the most disliked aspect of interview behaviour. On the flipside, it showed 63% of Irish employers do not realise they can be taken to tribunal over interview discrimination. 

The top five “what not to dos” were: 

* Failure to wear business-like attire. 

* Lateness.

But imagine if you could release the weight of the world at bedtime. Automatically, too, so you don't even give it a thought. And without taking a single pill, either.

SELF IMPROVEMENT AND SUCCESS

Everything that happens to us happens in purpose and sometimes, one thing leads to another. Instead of locking yourself up in your cage of fears and crying over past heartaches, embarrassment and failures, treat them as your teachers and they will become your tools in both self improvement and success.

I remember watching Patch Adams – It's one great film that will help you improve yourself.
