About our discussion he says, "'In this tough-to-get-a-job' economy, showing up for an interview is not enough anymore. A judgement of a hiring manager of an interviewee is made within 5 - 7 seconds. The decision NOT to make a hire is made within 20 seconds! Showing up on time with a resume is not enough anymore. Although, 'you don't judge a book by the cover,' everyone does and everyone will. The key is to MANAGE the hiring manager's PECEPTION of you. Learn how to do just that."
