The Importance of Professional Dress • Your clothing is one of the first things that people see, so it’s important that you are dressed to impress in the workplace! • Different organizations have different dress requirements, so be sure you know about what is expected—this is part of “cracking the code” of what’s accepted in that environment! • In general, there are three types of dress codes: • Business (very professional) • Business Casual (relaxed professional) • Casual (save this for the weekend) • hey

You’ll be meeting many business professionals, so you want to be sure that your outfit looks professional as well. • You can earn 10 Promise Dollars if you bring in an example of a Career Expo-appropriate outfit—something that is either business or business-casual, so raid your closet, prepare for Monday’s event, and earn some extra Promise Dollars!
