Lots of studies claim that a hiring manager or human resources representative will make their hiring decision about a candidate within the first few minutes of meeting them (“90 seconds,” “3-to-five minutes,” “instantly” are all the timeframes quoted); that is, before talking to the candidate, learning about them, questioning them, etc. It is simply human nature to react to something by evaluating the visual information we receive. That’s why we sport a clean shirt, spiffy suit, and neat hair when meeting a hiring manager for the first time. But consider the condition of your teeth and/or gums when presenting yourself to a prospective employer as the best you that you can be. We brush, of course, and perhaps pop a breath mint before the meeting, but are these enough?
