Did you know a simple act can help your job interview so much?
Have you ever heard the expression “先手必勝” (sente-hissho) in Japanese? “先手” means first action, “必” means certain and “勝” means win. So this idiom means “first move will surely win”. This proverb wants to advise you that if you act before others, you will have a higher chance of winning.
There is another variation of this idiom that I just heard, “先手必笑” (also read as sente-hissho) “笑” means to laugh. When you go to an interview, the first thing you should do is smile. First impressions are always important. With a bright smile, you will leave a very good first impression on the interviewer.
Always keep in mind this “fairy tale” when going for an interview!
