First Impressions Really Do Matter!

By Kathy and Cathy, Rose-Hulman Career Services

You might think that making a good first impression is really about using common sense -- and you would be correct. At the same time, we constantly hear horror stories from recruiters and employers about the unfortunate things job-seekers do -- resulting in extremely poor first (and often last) impressions.

In this interactive session, two career services veterans with over 30 years combined experience will share do’s and don’ts, and tips and tricks to help you navigate first impressions: from getting the job interview, succeeding at the job interview, and then succeeding at your job.

Cathy McGregor Foster recently retired after working at five different universities, both big and small, assisting students with their career search. Kathy Kassissieh has spent the past 14 years here at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, where she is currently the Associate Director of Career Services and Employer Relations.
