With a university degree in hand, students expect more than simply being able to excel in academics or being one of the top achievers in their field of study. Getting a job after graduation is number one on most students’ list of things to do. Throughout the school year, students get plenty of help beyond the academic realm in finding that first job opportunity, one of which is the annual fashion show for career dressing. The Hardin-Simmons University office of Career Services will be hosting its 6th What Not to Wear Career Fashion Show, Tuesday, April 23, 2013, 6 p.m. in the Johnson Building, Multipurpose Room. At the professional-dress fashion show, students model appropriate business attire to an audience of other students. {{more}} Director of Career Services Kelley Wood says, “The fashion show helps students with real-life polishing skills they may need for that career edge. Students will learn about appropriate and inappropriate attire for professional settings, interviews, and professional attire for on the job.” The event is one of several teaching workshops throughout the year where students participate and receive instruction and tips on how to conduct themselves in a professional manner. During the fall semester, students can participate in an etiquette dinner which provides instruction and tips on expected conduct on dining in professional settings. Other workshops throughout the year concentrate on basic office skills for students. Career Fashion Show Tuesday, April 23 Johnson Building, Multi-Purpose Room 6:00pm – 7:00pm
