What I Wore Today: Career Fair Edition

Today I attended a career fair and got to have a little fun in the wardrobe department. They were telling us to keep it semi-business formal. What does that mean. There really is no such thing as semi-formal. You can't straddle the fence in matters formal.

I and most people took it to mean you can wear a suit but your only expected to wear an odd jacket and dress pants. As usual I prefer to wear suits when most dress down. I also wanted to send an informal tone yet business. I ended up wearing my lucky suit with my new sweater vest. The rest was just plain fun. I stuck to wearing stripes and didn't really consider the colors I was wearing. I just made sure the colors didn't fight each other.

Sometimes it is easier to avoid consciously choosing the colors you wear. I just went with my mood. This can lead to discoveries of color combinations that work for you. A recent one I discovered was pink and darker oranges. Another is dark green can match most colors, stick to the hunter green-ish colors. Chew on that for awhile and see where it takes you!

Pig cufflinks for good luck.

Neat cuff links. What kind of work are you looking for?

The Eccentric Orange Gentleman said...

Thanks, I'm like Noah; collecting animals in silver two by two.

I'm looking for a position in management. I'm in management now but the growth op.s with the company are slow and take a long time to progress financially. I was particularly looking forward to management training program for AT&T and Verizon. I love tech. and I can manage sales people well. After all I do it right now.

Very true. I've heard IBM also has fantastic employee training and a lot of opportunities for advancement within the company. I have an aunt that worked there and she said it was more valuable than her degree from Princeton. Good luck with the job search!

They currently are laying off. Times are indeed tough. I'm not even concerned with money, I just want to learn and gain some experience before business school in a few years.

I'm waiting on scheduling for an interview with AT&T. I'm pretty confident I'll make it through to the other side.
