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.

Time will be allotted for participant questions, and pizza will be provided; bring your own beverage to enjoy.

This event is part of The Graduate School's Professional Development Series and the Careers Beyond Academia Series co-sponsored with the Office of Postdoctoral Services. All Graduate School students and postdocs are welcome.
