By: The Park Avenue Diet
March 9, 2009 - PRLog -- NEW YORK, NY – According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ monthly jobs report, employers cut 651,000 jobs in February, bringing the number of unemployed persons to 12.5 million and making this the most competitive job market since 1983. Furthermore, the 2.6 million jobs lost over the past four months is the biggest loss over that time period since 1975.

“Your comprehensive image is more important than ever in this ultra-competitive, and discouraging, job market,” stated renowned image expert Dr. Stuart Fischer. “If you’re looking for a job in this environment my advice is that you consider not just how your resume looks, but how you look and act. In order to cut through the crowds and land the job, you’ve got to have the social skills, self-confidence and personal appearance to make a strong, positive impression.”

Advice on image improvement for job seekers is available in Dr. Fischer’s best seller The Park Avenue Diet. In the book entrepreneur and contributor Tinsley Mortimer along with six other experts and Dr. Fischer explain all aspects of image and how they interact to make a person successful. They also offer tips on self confidence, food choices, fashion, and more. For example:

Interviewers make their first impression of you within three seconds.

-   Once you’ve made it in the front door, Dr. Fischer advises that “acing the interview requires a proactive and comprehensive approach to your personal image. It’s known that most interviewers make their first impression of you within the first three seconds of meeting you based on your overall appearance, etiquette, poise, fitness level, weight, and fashion sense combined. I offer tips in my book on how to improve yourself in all these areas over a period of six weeks.

Tinsley Mortimer, savvy businesswoman and one of the most famous faces on the New York social scene, explains the importance of social interaction and manners in a job interview. For example:

Don’t monopolize the conversation.

-   Tinsley offers this advice about conversational skills from the book: “Think of a conversation like a tennis match – simply put, you talk, they talk, you talk, they talk, etc.”

-   Job experts agree that the interviewer will feel the interview was the most successful when they speak equally or more than the interviewee.
