Professional Tip of the Week
A good handshake is one way to help make someone remember you. Always shake hands whenever greeting someone or saying goodbye and speak up. Shake palm to palm with a medium-firm grip; a limp one suggests hesitance while a too-firm grip might convey being overly enthusiastic. Also know when to let go after 2-3 seconds to avoid that awkward situation.
