Career Quick Tip, The Handshake

Strike a balance between a weak or random handshake and an overly firm, hurtful handshake, since both leave an equally negative impression. A good handshake will have both participants’ thumbs hooking with a firm, yet relaxed grip. Shake up and down once or twice and release. 

Learn more about how to make a good first impression with employers at Career Services. Schedule an appointment today! Phone: 970.339.6508 E-mail: careerservices@aims.edu In-Person: College Center 226.
