ALWAYS BE ON YOU’RE “A” GAME
  • PICK UP APPLICATION
  • JOB/ CAREER FAIR
  • INTERVIEW
fresh start
FRESH START
  • Take a bath
  • Try on outfit before morning of interview.
  • Get a haircut
  • Don’t go out the night before
    • Red eyes
    • Smell
suits
SUITS
  • Choose a conservative single-breasted, 2-, 3-, or 4-button jacket.
  • Choose dark colors: black, dark gray, charcoal, olive, navy. Avoid flashy or showy fabrics.
  • A good bet for business casual is a navy blazer with dress pants, dress shirt, and a tie.
  • Have your suit pressed every few weeks to keep it looking nice.
  • Make sure your suit is altered to fit properly - sleeves should break just below your wrist.
  • Shop around for the best value in price and quality, and consider sales and clearances.
shirts
SHIRTS
  • Purchase several (7-8) good quality dress shirts (a couple are sufficient for campus interviews).
  • Cotton is the best fabric for shirts - no polyester or polyester-blend.
  • Collars should be stiff but comfortable (too loose looks unprofessional; too tight, you'll feel like you're choking).
  • If buying a shirt with a pointed collar be sure that it has collar stays or can be buttoned down.
  • A price range for quality shirts is $35-60 - remember that you're looking for good quality at a good price.
  • Resist buying brightly colored shirts until your wardrobe has expanded a little more and until you know more about the culture of your workplace.

TIES
  • Ties distinguish your individuality and update your fashion statement. They're also flexible and easy to replace.
  • Colors should work back into your suit or work well with your shirt.
  • Should end at belt line - no higher, no lower.
  • Purchase 1 or 2 to start (a couple are sufficient for campus interviewing).
shoes
SHOES
  • One pair basic black or brown.
  • Make sure they are comfortable.
  • Pricing: $90-150 for good quality leather shoes. Again, buy within your price range.
  • Always make sure your shoes are polished and well maintained.
belt suspenders and socks
BELT, SUSPENDERS, AND SOCKS
  • Your belt should match your shoes.
  • Socks and suspenders can be matched to your suit, shirt, or tie; a solid color is better - preferably black or navy.
  • NO GYM SOCKS - WHITE
  • If you wear suspenders, don't wear a belt.
business casual11
BUSINESS CASUAL
  • Most businesses today follow the standard business casual during the week and casual Friday.
  • Always check
jacket
JACKET
  • Choose a conservative style jacket in a solid, basic color. Save the trendier styles until you are more settled and familiar with the "culture" of your workplace.
skirt
SKIRT
  • Buy the skirt that goes with the jacket, and if possible, also choose a printed skirt that matches the jacket as well.
  • Skirts should be not be higher than the knees.
jacket15
JACKET
  • If the jacket you purchase has pants to match, that's great. Also consider additional pairs in black, navy, or dark gray.
  • Conservative novelty pattern (small hounds tooth or other tight pattern) is acceptable.
shirt blouse
SHIRT/BLOUSE
  • Look for ivory, black, navy, and gray blouses or shells to wear under suits.
  • Remember that blouses are an inexpensive way to change the look of an outfit.
  • Don't wear sleeveless blouses and dresses.
