Niedrich: First impressions last forever - Opinion

Niedrich: First impressions last forever - Opinion: "A new trend in business is the lunch interview. The lunch interview can take one of two forms: a job interview over lunch or a lunch that takes place after a job interview in the office. Both types of interviews serve the same purpose: they allow your interviewer to get to know you better by how you act, eat and treat service personnel during lunch.

Collette Murray, chairwoman of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, is one such business professional who conducts lunch interviews with these aims. Collette asserts that 'Frankly, there are some people out there who would not get high marks on their social graces. It's important to find that out. People can be rude to a server, and it shows how they treat people.'"
