What to wear

What you wear and how you wear it will make a strong first impression. Visit the organization and/or company website to get an idea of what professionals in the industry are wearing. Key: Be professional and conservative.

In order to maintain professionalism and make the most positive impression, the following attire is strongly encouraged: Business professional or business casual dress is appropriate and includes business suits, slacks, dress shirts, ties, blouses, polos, khakis, and knee length or longer skirts.

Avoid transparent and revealing clothing, sandals or open-toed shoes, cologne or aftershave, perfume, heavy makeup, costume jewelry, athletic watches, white socks, and visible body piercings and tattoos.
