I'm told I "lack presence"
I'm on the job hunt. I'm landing interviews but not offers. I was recently told by an acquaintance that I "lack presence" -- that I didn't leave a particularly memorable or engaging first impression.
Okay. Fair enough. I get a little nervous meeting people for the first time. I'll admit I don't have a really chummy personality or amazing gift of gab. So I'm nervous he might be right. And worse, I do honestly fear that it's hurting my job prospects.
Any thoughts on this. Anyone here know anyone equally plagued by "lacking presence"? What can I do to improve?
