1. My resume
2. My outfit
My mom told me to wear a white shirt, black pants and a black jacket. Although I do like black and white ensembles, I think that's a bit boring for a place like a job faire.
Resumes allow people to brag about themselves, but prospective employers at those kinds of shindigs don't see someone's resume first -- they see the person! Shouldn't someone's outfit add a bit of oomf to their overall appearance to make for a good first impression? I think so.
Here's a breakdown of what I wore:
- White button-up: Target (Converse All-Stars)
- Vintage tie: Crossroads
- Cardigan: Gap
- Pants (not pictured): Target (Merona)
