WHAT TO WEAR: Career Fair

What to Wear

Now that the school year is practically over, the most frequently asked question for college students is “what are you doing this summer?” Knowing that we will be asked these questions a lot towards the end of the year, colleges organize career fairs: an opportunity to explore different internships or even job options. At the career fairs here at Providence College, students have the chance to meet with over 50 companies all in one room! Although career fairs can be a little intimidating, it is a great way to show off your own personal brand and network. Attending one of these great fairs is an amazing opportunity that you will not regret going to! However, because so many students attend standing out is essential.

Because career fairs are more informal than interviews and such, this allows you a great deal of flexibility in what you wear. Although there are so many options, this Fashionista’s look is perfect for a career fair in that it helps her to stand out yet is still professional. With a pair of simple black pants as well as matching flats, the focus is really on her colorful floral jacket.

To finish her look, this Fashionista took her professional outfit to the next level by adding the perfect red lip. Not only does her lip color match her shirt, a bright and classy lipstick is overall a great chic and professional addition to almost any outfit. Finally, like this Fashionista, don’t forget a fashionable tote to carry your resumes and anything else you may need!

One Simple Change: Sticking with the business casual look, swap out the jacket for a black blazer—this look will be perfect for a presentation or even an interview!
