The transition from college to a career allows us to expand. Expand our skill sets, our knowledge, and for many of us, our closet. The clothes many of us wear to classes do not fit the dress code at many of our future jobs. When it comes time to interview for positions, or attend Career Fairs, it is important to make a good first impression. Like it or not, much of the first impression comes from appearance. Even if the position you are applying for is with an organization that dresses quite casually, it is necessary to dress up for your interview or networking opportunity if you want to make a good impression. Investing in a conservative, solid colored suit is a wise decision. Your appearance is more than just what you are wearing however. Making sure your nails are trimmed and your hair is neatly groomed is also important. For further information on appropriate interview attire for both men and women go to THIS WEBSITE. You can also schedule a MOCK Interview with a counselor at Career Services and wear your interview attire to get a professional’s opinion.
