Career planning tips lead to professional success

An article in the October 29 issue of the Phoenix Business Journal, which offered body language tips for business success, could have easily been written to find a great job.

The article written by contributing writer, Peggy Parks, was entitled "How to make body language work for you in business." It was a simple review of how to make a strong first impression.

The writer's tips were spot-on, especially when making that first business-to-business interaction. Three tips, in particular, are among the best practices we share when coaching job-seekers.

A good handshake - a nice firm, but not too strong, grip sets a good tone for the initial greeting. This is done simultaneously with...

Eye contact - we advise that you don't look anywhere but the other person's eyes when approaching and exchanging the greeting.

Smile - we're always encouraging both job-seekers and recruiters to smile. Not only does hit help set a positive tone, a smile can be contagious.

Kudos to Ms. Parks for a great article. She helps prove to young job-seekers that first impressions are as valuable in making strong career connections as they are in networking for great jobs.
