Planning to look for a full-time job or internship this coming year?
With the beginning of the school year fast approaching take a look at your wardrobe to be sure you are prepared for potential interviews with employers.
Find one that fits you and your budget and when you look in the mirror you say “I feel great in this”. With a suit it is to better to lean toward the conservative side, but for some industries, a bright color would be appropriate. Check out the webpages of the organizations that interest you and see how their employees are dressed in the ads. Along with a suit, you need a shirt, blouse/shell (women you know what I’m referring to), shoes, socks for men that match the color of your trousers, stockings for women (if you wear them), and a tie for men. I suggest 2 shirts/blouses and 2 ties. I’ll leave the socks up to you.
Most of our Career Fairs are business casual dress. This means a nice pair of slacks for men or women, a button down shirt or sweater set (for women), socks and shoes. Women may choose to wear a skirt instead of slacks. Business casual is not blue jeans, shorts, t-shirts, flip flops or sneakers. Men may choose to wear a tie.
Women, have appropriate accessories for the wardrobe you choose…less is more.
Some organizations, many of which are in the tech sector, are totally casual – jeans, t-shirts, sneakers, etc. The clothes are casual, but they are clean!
You’ll feel good knowing you are set to go for that first employer interaction!
