Earlier this month I was preparing to attend a career fair. While preparing for the career fair I realized I didn’t have the proper attire, so I decided to go to Goodwill to look at clothes. I already had plans to donate a bag of my clothes and shoes, so I just decided to actually go inside and shop for blouses, slacks, and blazers.
I have slacks, flats, heels, and a few nice shirts for interviews but I have needed to add more to my professional clothing. I ended up spending $33 and I bought 3 blouses, 2 shirts, 1 pair of slacks, and 1 blazer.
On the day of the career fair it was raining so I got soaked after attending, but I did hand out resumes and I think it went really well. So no one important saw me soaked. Lol. After the career fair, I got called for interviews. I think my outfit had a lot to do with that besides my resume and my conversations with company representatives.
If you guys are interested in interview tips, career fair tips, and resume tips let me know. How many sets of professional outfits do you guys currently have?
