Making a Good Impression

I love the book from Lizzy Post called "How Do You Work This Thing Called Life?"
She gives lots and lots of good advice and I like this little tip from her. I know that most of this stuff might be common sense but who doesn't need a good refresher?!

1. Shake hands when you introduce yourself.
2. Sit down only after your interviewer invites you to do so.
3. Stand up when anyone is introduced to you.
4. Say “Thank you”—at the beginning, at the end and once again in a written note.
5. Speak clearly and make eye contact.
6. Smile: It shows you are inviting and friendly, confident but not cocky, able to be relaxed and personable in a potentially stressful or intimidating situation."

I got this book for my little sister and my SIL for Christmas two years back. I hope they liked it! I wish I had kept a copy for myself.
