Three random things that determine how successful you are!
Here we go.
1) Your face...but not just how good looking you are. A mature looking face makes you look more competent.
2) Your name. If you have a name that is hard to pronounce, the odds of you getting the job, are shortened.Better first impression if they don't trip over your name.
3) How popular you were in high school. In one study, researchers had kids list the top three most popular kids in their class. then 35 years later, researchers checked back with everyone. The top 15% in popularity were making an average of 10% more than everyone else.
My bonus tips: Act interested-be on time-stay late when necessary-get along little dogie- clean up the kitchen and let people see you doing it.
