Perception is Reality

What does your profile say about you? It's a harsh reality that you will be judged for the rest of your life by everybody you come in contact with; your appearance, handshake, phone etiquette, even your presence online. So how can you use this judgement to your advantage, especially when it comes to finding your perfect career or job? This presentation will provide what you should do for success and plenty of real-life mistakes that people commonly make to their detriment. Be prepared to laugh, be surprised, but most importantly, to take a long look in the mirror at yourself.
