January marks the start of a New Year when many of our patients here at Platinum Dental Care are thinking about giving up smoking or drinking, where to go on holiday, buying a new house or looking for a new job.
Looking for a new job can be an uphill struggle during these difficult times, but did you know that teeth whitening can help to set you apart from other candidates and enhance your chances of landing your dream job.
Here are some reasons why teeth whitening can boost your career prospects in Canary Wharf:
Making that everlasting first impression
Making that first impression is everything, with studies revealing that 38% of employers claim that failing to smile is the reason for many candidates being unsuccessful at interview stage.
Employers love candidates with a warm confident smile, as this boosts your likeability factor and we are all more likely to interact with someone who has a friendly face and a warm smile. Having whiter teeth can give you that confidence, if you don’t already have it, or it can boost your confidence if you are a confident person.
Boosting your Confidence
When you are looking to take on a new challenge, employers love confidence. They need to believe that you are not only confident and able to do the job that they are interviewing you for, they also want you to be a good communicator and great with the clients.
Where do whiter teeth come into this? Many of us have stained teeth and often hide behind that desk too afraid to speak. Having whiter teeth can help to boost your confidence and self-esteem when meeting new people without the fear of wondering if they are staring at your teeth.
Whiter teeth shows that you look after your appearance
Employers like candidates who are not only confident but also clean and tidy. The cleaner your clothing and teeth look, the closer you will be to getting that dream job in Canary Wharf. In a survey, 65% of bosses indicated that appearance could be a deciding factor between two almost-identical candidates. The more effort you put into dressing the part, the higher your chances of getting the job. This includes from head to toe, so make sure your hair is neat and tidy, your teeth are looking shiny and polished, make-up is tidy, your suit is clean and not creased, your hands and nails are clean and your shoes are polished.
Does teeth whitening really improve job prospects?
Knowing that your teeth are white can give you the ability to speak with confidence which can be critical for situations such as a job interview, where you only have a few minutes to show why youare the best candidate for the job. Having whiter teeth can help you stand out so that you are the first person on the employer’s mind when hiring for a new position.
