First Impressions Count! -- when it comes to interviewing for a job, going on a first date, or merely meeting new people.  When it comes to these types of first encounters, what do you know to prepare yourself to put your best foot forward?  When it came to interview for jobs out of college, I made a point to dress for the job I was applying for, as well as studying up in advance of the interview about the company and job, so that I make the best impression possible.  Event though it has been years since I interviewed for a job, I recently found myself feeling the same "first impression" jitters when joining different "Mommy and Me" meetups, and attending group activities with my girls.  You would think that making friends would be easy, especially when you get older. I don't know about you, but I find it more difficult.  You want to impress people, while also not losing sight of who you really are, as you hope people will like you.  I remember meeting new people with my husband when we moved to CT. I found myself with sweaty palms and clamming up when asked about my hobbies, likes, etc., just like I had experienced during job interviews years early.  And, now, 10+ years later, I am back at it, trying to make the best first impression, as I connect and build relationships with other moms, to not only benefit the social development of my girls, but also gain new mommy friends I can turn to for parenting advice or just to have an adult conversation with.  Do you have tips you could share about making the best first impression, as it relates to applying for a job, meeting new people, etc.?  Please share them in the comment section below.

When you are done sharing your tips, make sure you head on over to Walmart to enter the Walmart AXE Hair - The Greatest Place to Work Sweepstakes, inspired by the DVD release of the movie, The Internship, which stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.  This is one movie my husband and I got to see in theaters, and we couldn't stop laughing.  We both left the theater wishing we worked at Google as an intern or employee, as it looked like the best place to work.
