Are you a student trying to take that step from pajama pants in the cafeteria to a suit at a job fair? Read from a fellow student Jennifer Puhr on what she says on the subject.

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.
