Experts say that it takes human beings just seven seconds to make a first impression. “It’s true,” said Wendy Dwyer, instructor at Indian River State College. “Within seven seconds of meeting someone, you typically decide whether or not to like them, trust them, develop a relationship with them, or work with them. When you’re looking for a job or career, don’t you want to make those first seven seconds – and all the ones thereafter – count?”
