Posted by James Patrick Kahler on November 6, 2014

Have you ever seen a preview for a movie before? Of course you have (If you’re reading a blog on the internet, then there’s a good chance you’ve seen plenty of previews). Anyways, I’m sure you’re like me when I say it usually only takes me a matter of seconds within seeing a preview to decide whether or not I will want to see the movie. The same can be said about conducting interviews.  bad_candidates_mini

According to the article “First Impressions” published in Psychological Science, two psychologists said that it only takes a tenth of a second for a person to make an impression from a stranger’s face—or in our case, a candidate’s face.
