One site that is helpful to women when determining the type of outfit to buy for your career fairs, interviews, and networking events is from www.bizme.biz - Best Interview Outfits: Suiting Up For Game Day.
The Career Services Center also has our own suggestions in a "Dress for Success" handout, located in our Online Library
- It is important to project a professional image. (My two cents: much safer to overdress than underdress - even if you are doing and informational interview and there isn't an immediate "job on the line" type situation.)
- Employers may assume that this is the best you will ever look.
- Unfortunately, making your way into the world-of-work means that you may be judged on the way you look and how you present yourself. This may not always be fair. There are a number of things you can do to feel confident about yourself in an interviewing situation. Because, as you know, you only get one chance to make a first impression.
- Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.
|The goal is to feel great about what you have to offer the company. |
Feeling confident about your professional outfit is one easy way to do this!
