10 Little Things That Make a Big Difference to Hiring Managers

Did you ever wonder about the impression you make on potential employers? Seemingly small things, like how you look when you walk in the door, to your social media footprint, can give a hiring manager a reason to pause…and perhaps not want to go much further. The good news is that these little things are easily corrected and can make the difference in someone making the hire versus taking a pass.
