Avoid Making A Bad First Impression During an Interview
by Snarky McInterviewer

We all have made first bad impressions, and the most important element in fixing a bad first impression is time.  Unfortunately, an interview doesn’t accord enough time to change a first impression, so here are some pitfalls you’ll want to avoid.

Clothing:  This is as easy as it gets–wear a suit.  Men: white shirt and tie, Women: conservative blouse, few pieces of jewelry and remember, your perfume smells much better to you than it does to me, use little or none.

Anything on your face that God didn’t give you, take it off.

If you might be late, call.  If you don’t call and are late, no job for you.  Today, my time is more important than yours. If you don’t understand that, I don’t want you as a co-worker.

If you show up too early, go get a coffee.  Nobody here wants you hanging around for 45 minutes just so you can demonstrate your punctuality and eagerness.  It’s creepy.

Anything you say to anyone in the lobby before we met, I’ll hear about it.  So don’t be a jerk.  If you think the receptionist is beneath you, you’re wrong.  First of all, she has a job.  Secondly, she’s awesome, you are a twit.

If you don’t know how to pronounce my name, or even worse, you have forgotten it, ask the receptionist, nicely.  I like hearing my name, so get it right.

When we meet, shake my hand like a man, even if you are a woman.  If your hand is wet, wipe it on your pants before the shake.

Impress me with your knowledge of the company.  I will give you opportunities, use them.

If you are sick, call and reschedule.  Here’s something I’ve never said, “I hired the guy who gave me the flu.”

You’re probably better off rescheduling if you have a shiner or some other temporary disfigurement.  As good as a person as I try to be, a black eye is hard to overlook.  And if you got the black eye because of a disagreement over flip cup or a game of quarters last night, lie to me.

Throughout the interview, be interested in every word I say.  It could be important.

Good eye contact is important, staring is disturbing.  If you don’t already know the difference, I can’t help you.

Don’t chew gum and don’t smell like cigarettes.  One is distracting and one is gross.

Shine your shoes.  I’ll probably never look at them, I just always wanted to tell someone that.  One codicil to this, if I can hear your shoes flip flopping off your feet, out you go.  I don’t care how expensive your flip flops were, I don’t care if you wore them to the White House while your national championship team was being honored, don’t wear them to my interview.

Next week:  The dreaded Group Interview

~ ACTIONABLE EXPERT ADVICE ~
FLASH FORWARD –  Is working in reverse secretly hurting your career?
by Jessica Sitomer

When a blackout gives everyone in the world a look at their future, FBI agent, Mark Benford, works “in reverse” to get to the bottom of what the future holds. Characters like Bryce had a back-up plan when he thought his future wasn’t going to come to fruition. He decided to settle for Nicole, who wasn’t his dream girl.

What happens when your back-up plan isn’t your dream come true? What if like so many others, your back-up plan is what happens IF your entertainment career doesn’t work out?

As a coach, there are two stands I can take on back-up plans.
One: it’s responsible to have a plan if you haven’t reached certain milestones by certain time frames.
Two: If you know that back-up plan is there for you as a “safety-net, you may never fully risk everything you must, to make your dream come true.

The later is what this article is about. Bryce’s back-up plan failed because he saw his future. When it became clear he still had a chance to meet his dream girl, he took it. Working in reverse resulted in him hurting Nicole.

Is working in reverse secretly hurting your career? Have you ever considered, daydreamed, or even discussed with someone a back-up plan? If so, knowing it exists could be stopping you from taking the business side of your business as seriously as you MUST, to create the career you want. Think about when you make calls for work. Is it while you’re on a job or once the job is over? If it’s once the job is over, you’ve waited too long. Now what happens if you can’t find another job as your money is running out? You get desperate which makes you less likely to get hired. But, you can always fall back on your back-up plan; working at Starbucks, cashing in stocks, selling your house, or worst-case scenario, leaving the business.

Instead of creating a back-up plan to fall back on, why not create a strategic plan that builds toward your dream? Work forward, take risks, take action as if failure were not an option, as if there was no back-up plan.

Don’t take a chance on throwing away your dream for a back-up plan. Treat each day as if it were your last opportunity to make it and see what shifts occur.

~ ASK THE EXPERTS ~
Questions from our Readers
Answered by Jessica Sitomer

Should I write an objective on my resume? I have heard so many different and passionate opinions, what should I do?

You should do what feels authentic to you and your personality. You should also do your research. People in all areas of entertainment read Cynopsis so I’ll say, anyone below-the-line, or talent, should not use an objective. It makes you look green because the professionals aren’t doing it. For people at the executive level, the objective doesn’t really make you stand out because your objective is most likely the objective of most of the applicants. My suggestion is to call the office where you’re applying and ask (anonymously) if objectives are necessary to apply. Your response will most likely be (if you were speaking to me), “But I’m applying online so there is no number to call.” That tells me you’re sending a cold resume. All the more reason to forget about the objective and focus on a very personal cover letter that will get you noticed. That’s my passionate opinion.

I like bow ties and I know that many people do not. Will wearing a bow tie to an interview make me stand out in a good way or a bad way?

Interviews are about creating rapport, therefore you want to do everything you can to be “like” your interviewer. Like attracts like. I had a camera operator client who wasn’t working and who dressed like a biker (full ZZ Top beard and all). He liked it. It was his look. But people who saw him were intimidated and didn’t want to hire him. It’s not what you like, it’s what’s going to create rapport. Bow ties have a stigma, they’re kind of nerdy. You can continue to wear what you like, but the odds are against you that you’re going to walk into an interview in the hip industry of entertainment and find a like-minded bow tie lover. You may. But my suggestion is: get the job first… then sport your bow tie with pride!
