Episode Twenty Eight
August 16th 2013
Whenever I have the pleasure of speaking at a school commencement, there’s always been a recurring theme I try to get across to graduates. I tell them that if they remember nothing else of what I say here today, remember this: you only have one chance to make a first impression. I know many of you have stories of blown first impressions or of wonderful first impressions that led to great opportunities. I think it’s worthwhile to share because so many young people go out to interviews for schools and first jobs, or even that first date, and they don’t grasp the importance of that initial meeting, the strong handshake, the looking directly in the eyes, instead of watching their phone in their lap. It's a fun topic. Tell me your story.
Judy says...You only have one chance to make a first impression.
