Today I attended a career fair on campus. Another reminder that graduate school is nearly over and the time to start a job is drawing near. Very near.
Equipped with a resume full of experiences, a smile on my face, fancy business cards and confidence in my heart- this morning I had everything I needed to impress prospective employers except for the perfect outfit.
Here is what I came up with:
I was going to wear the pants that matched my jacket, thus completing the suit, but I decided, instead, to mix things up a bit. I think my outfit was appropriate for the occasion, but I'm not sure if my personality came through as much as I hoped it would. But, how much of your personality or style should you display at a career fair?
Whether or not this outfit had a great personality, I did stay true to some of my favorite colors to wear: pastel pink, grey, and navy blue.
Anyways, the career fair went pretty well, and I feel good about the contacts I made. Overall, a wonderful Wednesday!
