First Impressions

The first impression you make on the interviewer can decide the rest of the interview. It is important that you introduce yourself, shake hands, and be friendly and polite. The first question is often a “breaking the ice” (establish a rapport) type of question. Don’t be surprised if the interviewer asks you something like:

  • How are you today?
  • Did you have any trouble finding us?
  • Isn’t this great weather we’re having?

This type of question is common because the interviewer wants to put you at ease (help you relax). The best way to respond is in a short, friendly manner without going into too much detail.

Here is some examples correct responses

Interviewer: How are you today?

You: I’m fine, thank you. And you?

OR

Interviewer: Did you have any trouble finding us?

You: No, the office isn’t too difficult to find.

OR Interviewer: Isn’t this great weather we’re having?

You: Yes, it’s wonderful. I love this time of year.

Interviewer: Did you have any trouble finding us?

You: No, the office isn’t too difficult to find.

Here are some examples of incorrect responses:

How are you today?

So, so. I’m rather nervous actually.

OR

Interviewer: Did you have any trouble finding us?

You: As a matter of fact it was very difficult. I missed the exit and had to return via the highway. I was afraid I was going to be late for the interview.

OR Interviewer: Isn’t this great weather we’re having?

You: Yes, it’s wonderful. I can remember this time last year. Wasn’t it awful! I thought it would never stop raining!

You: No, the office isn’t too difficult to find.
