I start evaluating everything about you from your first contact with me. If written I notice grammar, spelling, syntax and politeness. If by phone, attitude, philosophy (i.e., it’s a numbers game how many clients do you have?), grammar and our communication styles with each other. This is such a personal endeavor it is important that we communicate well with each other. As I’ve said many times on this site, I turn down more people than I accept to represent based on a wide variety of factors.
I had a woman call me and leave a message. So I returned the call promptly and didn’t hear back. (I do not chase after clients like other Denver Matchmaking Services. I want to see your level of interest, reliability and motivation) Months later she called again leaving another message. Again I returned her call promptly and again never heard from her. This shows me a number of things about her and none of them are good. IF she calls again I probably will not work with her. My clients deserve people who are sincerely motivated and reliable and that’s what I try to give them. She has already made a bad impression.
More than likely you will only meet with me face to face once, at your initial interview. When you dress for the interview remember I am your representative, agent, promoter, confidant and coach. I am your advocate, I’m on your side to facilitate the best result in your quest. So just like a job interview you need to make a good impression at this one opportunity. That means visually as well as personality and attitude. The more you cooperate, collaborate and follow through in a timely manner, the better our relationship will be.
As with your pictures you need to put a lot of thought into what you wear to the interview. Also if you are difficult, indecisive or combative throughout the interviewing process that does not make a good impression. This is an interview like any other so put your best foot and attitude forward. The nicer and more appealing you are the more I will be apt to recommend you over someone else and push someone towards you when they are on the fence!
