Sometimes we fail to make a good impression when we need to. I found this handy tips in Good Housekeeping online which would help to make a lasting impression, especially when you are meeting somebody for the first time...
1. Be pleasant and full of praise.
2. Have a balanced conversation.
3. Dress to make the right impression.
4. Convey interest.
5. Get real in your introduction.
6. Contribute to the conversation.
7. Make eye contact.
8. Know when the conversation is over.
