‘First impression is the last impression” and its significance is apparent in a job interview. Cracking an interview
is not an easy task, it takes a lot of effort to go through the process. But, do you know that the recruiter can build an opinion about you in just 5 minutes? It takes only 5 minutes for the interviewer to decide if you should proceed to the next round of interviews. This is known as the “halo effect”, a tendency to reconcile the judgments with the introductory observations itself.
