First impressions are everything, and if you’ve ever been into online dating, you’ll understand why. Tinder (a very popular ‘swipe-to-like’ dating app used by millions) uses the concept of ‘first impressions’ as the overall concept the app. If you don’t like what you see in the first 3 seconds, you can swipe a potential lover away forever.
This same type of first impression happens when employers and recruiters check out your social channels. They will form an opinion on you straight away, probably in the initial 3 seconds of viewing your profile. If you’ve been tagged in a series of photos that begin with you necking tequila shots and ends with you hugging the toilet bowl, it’s safe to say their first impression of you may not have been the best. On Stride has created the infographic below on how to create the perfect first impression online.
