Fair Appearance and Attire

This information was retrieved from MSU Career Services Network Website 2/10/14
Dress Essentials for Everyone
  • Clothing should work for you, not against you. Fit and comfort are important considerations in projecting yourself at your best.
  • Trendy clothing—like short skirts, low necklines, extreme prints or colors—generally do not project an image appropriate for a professional meeting.
  • Crisp, clean, well-pressed clothing is a must.
  • Hair should be clean, well groomed, and away from the eyes.
  • Simple, classic styles are best.
  • Remove extraneous earrings. (Women: one pair. Men: none.)
  • Avoid strong mints, perfumes, or aftershaves.
  • No visible tattoos (cover) or body piercings (remove pins).
What to Wear for this fair
For these kinds of interactions, you always want to dress professionally—no ripped jeans, flip-flops, or T-shirts with obscenities on them.   Consider the items below when you’re picking out what to wear . . .
  • Khakis
  • Sweater
  • Dress pants
  • Dress shoes
  • Loafers
  • Button-down shirt
And remember, when in doubt, check with an insider (your employer contact or Career Advisor, for example) about what the appropriate dress in a particular situation might be!

What you will need for the Fair:
Introduction speech summarizing about yourself: (30-40 seconds)
                Who am I?
                What can I offer the company/organization? (skills)
                Why you are a good candidate for the position? (tailor to position desired)
Padfolio  - to help carry your resume and any additional paperwork
Resume (optional)
Business card (if you have it, for future contact)
