presentation Dear Students, Want to Dress Like a Professional? Learn from a Fellow Student

So I’m taking this project/presentation-oriented class this semester.

You know the type. You do one or two solo presentations, then your professor puts you in a group and the presentations continue.

Our professor requires us to dress in business attire for all presentations.

Naturally, when it was time for my presentation, I tried on all the business-appropriate outfits my closet had to offer until I found the perfect one.

You can imagine my surprise when the student who presented before me chose blue jeans – yes, blue jeans – to wear during his presentation.

His ignorance to the real meaning of business dress and Career Days being today and Wednesday inspired me to write about this matter.
