HOW TO DRESS FOR A JOB FAIR

While the term “professional dress” means different things in different occupations, one thing is certain: You must look polished when you attend an interview or job fair.

Some students make the mistake of dressing for a job fair or interview as they would on the job. In many cases, you can dress much more casually on the job than you should for an interview or job fair. Remember, you have to get the job before you can dress like someone who already has a job!
