Career Fairs are your opportunity learn more about jobs and internships offered by companies, government agencies, and non-profit organizations where you might like to work. Some employers and fairs are focused on students from specific colleges or majors, but many are interested in Reinhardt students from any major.

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!
Below are a few tips on dressing professionally for job interviews and job fairs.
|Business suit in a conservative color (navy, gray, or black are preferred); women may wear suits with either a skirt or pants||Khakis, jeans, or sweats|
|For men: dress shirt and tie||Shirt tail not tucked in, stains or wrinkles, neck tie not properly tied|
|For women: blouse that complements the suit; neckline no lower than collarbone; skirt hem should be no more than two inches above the knee||Low necklines or hemlines on skirts more than two inches above the knee; pants above the ankle|
|Clothes clean and pressed||Shoes run down at the heels, scuffed, or not polished, white socks|
|Shoes: for men—wing tips or loafers with dark socks; for women—low/medium heels or flats with neutral hose.||Colored hose or hose with runs or snags in them|
|Too tight or too loose clothing, revealing or provocative clothing|
|Clean and styled||Dirty or unkempt|
|Off your face||Excessively long bangs|
|For men – short hair is preferable; facial hair should be groomed||Playing with your hair|
|Minimal jewelry: small earrings (one pair only), necklaces, pins, etc. (wedding/engagement rings are acceptable)||Excessive or large jewelry|
|Good-quality briefcase or portfolio to hold papers||Disorganized materials|
|Cell phone is turned off||Cell phone rings during interview|
|Visible tattoos or piercings|
|Heavy or excessive scents|
