Remember the saying that you never get a second chance to make a first impression? It’s true, and fruit baskets can help you make a great impression on people. Whether you are looking for a new job, trying to find new clients, or starting a new relationship fruit baskets can help you stand out from the crowd and make a lasting impression. Fruit baskets are very economical when compared to other gifts like flowers and are a lot more neutral than flowers, candy, or other gifts. Sending flowers to someone that you are going on a date with, or had a first date with and want to ask out again, can be misinterpreted and leave a bad impression. But sending a fruit basket before the date as a way to let that person know you’re excited to go out with them or sending a fruit basket of delicious healthy oranges or grapefruit after the date lets them know you had a great time in a friendly way.
In the current job market small gestures like sending fruit baskets can mean the difference between getting an interview and not getting one, or getting the job or not getting the job. If you have a couple of companies that you want to interview with but haven’t gotten a call back after sending in your resume try sending citrus fruit baskets to the hiring managers or the heads of the HR departments at each company. Let them know you appreciate their considering your resume. Sending fruit baskets is a great way to get their attention and make your name stand out from the sea of applicants that they have for each job. Current statistics say that there are hundreds of job seekers for every open job so unless you do something to stand out you will probably not get noticed. Sending an elegant fruit basket lets the HR manager or the hiring manager know that you’re serious and you want the chance to interview for the job.
If you have gotten as far as the interview but haven’t been called back since sending fruit baskets will remind the hiring managers who you are and let them know you’re still interested in the job. When companies can choose from so many workers they will be looking for one that is really willing to go the extra mile and sending fruit baskets shows them that you are creative, determined, and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.
