Employers want to work with people who fit into the culture of their organization. To show that you're such a person calls for skills in the art of making a positive first impression. You will identify how these skills apply during an interview or during an informal business event. You will further identify specific steps you can take to develop, and eventually master, the art of making a positive first impression.

Preparing for interview questions does not mean memorizing canned responses. It does not mean reading from a script.

In this module, you'll identify strategies and language you can use to begin to communicate your value to a potential employer.
