No offense to Woody Allen, but we think 80 percent of life is showing up in the right outfit. At Career Connections Day on Oct. 17, you’ll want to dress for success. To do that, you’ll need to dress to impress the more than 40 employers that will be in attendance.
So let’s go over what to do and, more importantly, what NOT to do, shall we?
You don’t have to go all Barney, but a pressed suit with simple accessories that fit your personality will take you far. Stick with a muted palette (black is flattering on everyone).
But … a word to the wise:
Hang up those jeans
They’ll be fine without you for this one day, we promise.
Trade that onesie in for a 3-piece suit
Yes, it’s soooo comfortable. But it’s soooo not professional.
Leave the Ballcap Behind (and the Tank)
They can keep the jeans company.
Save Your Club Look for the Club
When overdressed = underdressed.
