Professional dress in the job search

You've worked hard to get where you are - your academic performance, your experience, your involvement on campus and in the community - they are all impressive. And these are the experiences that will help you get you an interview for the job you want.

But when you meet an employer, in person, all of your hard work can be undermined by unprofessional or inappropriate attire. Your goal should be to make a positive first impression with your appearance. 

To help you make good decisions on what to wear to a career event or interview, the staff of Career Services asked employers to give their impressions of candidate attire.
