What Should I Wear? 

Dress to Impress


You may be wondering how you should dress for the Career Fair.  Here are some of suggestions:

Men:  Dress as you would for a career interview.  A shirt and tie is very appropriate, and a sport coat or suit is even better -- especially if you are in a business or professional field.  Individuals in technical trades can be a bit more casual, but clothing will need to look clean and neat.  Personal grooming and cleanliness in either case go without saying.

Women: Dress as you would for an interview.  A blouse and skirt or dress slacks are appropriate, and a business suit is even better -- especially if you are in a business or professional field.  Individuals in technical trades can be a bit more casual, but clothing will need to look clean and neat.  Makeup and jewelry should be kept to a minimum.  The event involves a great deal of time standing and walking, so flat shoes would be a preferred choice.

Remember that the employers in attendance are usually dressed professionally and expect the same from you.

Keep in mind that first impressions tend to be lasting ones.  When you make contact with a potential employer -- even at a Career Fair -- you are being evaluated from the very beginning.  Being properly prepared and "dressed for success" help you make a favorable first impression.
