Be Aware of Your Surroundings

Secret #3: Be aware of their surroundings.

After you’ve arrived to the location of your interview, pay very close attention to your surroundings.

Look for details such as the setup of the office, how employees interact with each other, and what the hiring manager’s office looks like. The way the office is designed and how people interact will give you a better idea of how to present yourself during the job interview.

Without a doubt, making a positive first impression is crucial in most pursuits, but never more so than when interviewing for a job. Heather Huhman, writing for Glassdoor, notes that many job seekers are unaware of how to make that perfect first impression.

Most times, hiring managers and interviewers are looking for people whose personality and attitude will be a good fit for their business. If you don't come across in a positive fashion during your interview, regardless of how qualified you are, there's a really good chance you won't be getting a call offering you the job.

Huhman notes that if you want to impress the hiring manager during your next interview, you need to be a likeable candidate, and offers the following five secrets to help you meet that goal.
