Dress for Success: A Workshop


Laura Coutts, Associate Director for Career Services, Duke Biostatistics and Bioinformatics

While workplaces have become more casual since 2020, there are still expectations of what "professional dress" looks like in different industries. This workshop will address first impressions, dressing authentically, and tailoring your professional image. We will discuss how to determine an organization's unofficial dress code, dressing appropriately for the occasion (career fair, coffee chat, networking event, interview, etc.), and shopping on a budget. Attendees will have the opportunity to put what they've learned into action in a short exercise. Bring your questions!

This event is part of the Careers Beyond Academia Series and Academic Job Search Series sponsored by The Graduate School and the Office of Postdoctoral Services.
