Dress professionally, as if you are going on a job interview, to make a positive first impression.
Suits are best to wear:
- Black, brown, charcoal, gray or navy
- Pressed shirt/blouse and pants/skirt
MEN - Ties are a nice addition and should complement the outfit, not overwhelm with loud colors or cartoon characters.
LADIES - Skirts should be longer than finger tips when standing. High heels should be no more than 2 inches.
EVERYONE - Closed toe shoes are a must, make sure you wear comfortable shoes, as you will be walking and standing for some time.
- Limit jewelry, cover tattoos and avoid cologne or perfume.
- No gum. Bring breath mints and consume these before meeting with recruiters.
What to Bring
25 clean copies of your resume on quality bond paper to hand out. However, don't be alarmed if some recruiters refer you to their website to apply online.
A portfolio/briefcase to hold the resumes, a legal pad, and a quality pen to write down contacts and notes from each encounter.
A business/networking card to distribute to employers.
