Making a Great First Impression

May 24, 2023, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. PT/ 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. ET

Did you know you only have 7 seconds to make a first impression?

Learn how to make those first few seconds count at PLT’s Making a Great First Impression at a Green Job webinar on May 24, 2023 from 1–3 pm PT / 4–6 pm ET!

First impressions are important—they set the tone for the relationship, and they can make a difference in whether you land a job or not. What you wear and your body language, tone, and mannerisms all contribute to that first impression.

Join PLT’s Making a Great First Impression at Green Job webinar to learn how you can put your best foot forward in professional settings.
