Making Introductions
Have you ever questioned your introduction skills? If
not, you should, since making a proper introduction is a
form of business etiquette and sets the tone for how others
will perceive you. Learning proper introductions not only
enhances your business image but boosts your selfconfidence. Grasping corresponding introduction skills and
techniques as well as knowing about some introduction
manners will also be of great help in your interview.
