Dressing Professionally

  • Research your career field to see what is appropriate. Discuss this with your career counselor or industry professionals.
  • When in doubt, it is better to be too conservative than too flashy. Dress up rather than be too casual.
  • Have your clothes clean and wrinkle-free.
  • Wear dress shoes, not flip-flops or tennis shoes.
  • Accessories should be kept simple: shoes, jewelry and makeup should present a professional image.
  • Minimize your cologne and perfume usage and make sure you are using the needed amount of deodorant.
