Interview Attire Guidelines
Professional Dress is encouraged.
BUSINESS CASUAL (Not jeans, not a suit)
Here are some examples:

Whatever you choose to wear, make sure it isn't too revealing.
To really impress, wear PROFESSIONAL DRESS!
... basically, that means a suit.
In fields like Accounting, or in many corporate jobs, professional dress is required in the office. Also, professional dress is recommended for any job interview.
What NOT to wear.
... we won't let you in Career Fair if you're wearing...
- Tank top
- Athletic wear
Tattoos & Piercings
Your self-expression through body art is appreciated, but it may not be embraced by an employer wanting to hire you.
This one is your call, but we do recommend covering those tattos and removing body piercings, with the exception of earrings in the traditional ear lobe area.
Large Purses & Bags
Besides being bulky and in the way, you don't want to carry around that heavy thing, anyway!
We know you're a student, so if you need to have your backpack, that's okay. Ladies, pack a small shoulder purse or just keep your car key in your pocket. Less is best.
These are a great way to carry your resumes in a professional way - in fact, we recommend them. You can pick one up at any office supply store or even the Southeastern Bookstore!
One Last Tip...
You know that thing that's always glued to your hand? Yes, your cell phone. You may want to put it away - in your purse, pocket, backpack, car trunk. Employers won't want to interact with someone looking down or interrupted by a text notification. Take a break from the tech and have real-time, live interaction that isn't on Twitter.
