About This Course

Hiring for a key role within your company is a crucial decision. You want to make sure you are attracting the top talent. The #2 reason job seekers pull out of the recruitment process is a poor interaction with a recruiter or hiring manager. So, what is it that causes a poor first interaction? How can we improve that first contact to encourage and invite the best talent to move forward with us? Jeff Baird helps answer these questions and walks you through research-backed tips on how to ensure a positive first interaction.

Earn 1 PDU in Strategic and Business Management with this eye-opening course. Jeff Baird helps you level up by exploring biases, explaining how our brains make shortcut assessments, and revealing nonverbal impacts on a first impression.

This course is ideal for anyone involved in the hiring process or anyone looking to improve their ability to make a positive first impression, whether that be at networking events, delivering presentations, reporting results to senior management, or even within your social circle.

From Our Customers

Testimonial Headshot image of Claire Struthers
Velociteach is doing a great job of helping me earn my PDUs through the courses offered to me. I am most enthusiastic about project management and the Agile methodology that is garnering a lot of attention. Kudos to Velociteach and Neal Whitten to take this on and provide more information to PMI PMP's such as myself. It helps me to take the course on my own pace and when it serves me best to get on the computer to learn it.

I used Velociteach course material in preparing for my PMP exam years ago, and Velociteach has been my go-to for online courses thereafter.
