Making a First Impression

Making a positive first impression is essential in a job interview. An employer’s opinion of a candidate is not only based on individual skills, but also on how they present themselves. By dressing professionally a candidate can show employers they mean business. That was the message heard by over 40 business students on Wednesday evening.  

The college kicked off the spring semester with its first workshop, Professional Appearance of the Student Professional Development Program, moderated by program coordinators, Thomas Bingham and Vanessa Meling. The workshop showcased the dos and don’ts of getting ready for an interview, tips on workplace attire and how to accessorize and groom to achieve a polished image.

Representatives from Bealls, Macy’s and Men’s Wearhouse presented classic styles that are timeless and affordable and also provided tips on how to make the most of your current wardrobe with versatile pieces. Each store representative handed out a complimentary gift bag containing store discounts and giveaways to all attendees.
