With these various events approaching quickly, Labor Day Weekend is the perfect opportunity for you to update your professional wardrobe, whether it be picking up a suit from home, borrowing from a friend, or purchasing one. For anyone who has not had experience in compiling a professional wardrobe the Career Services Center has created a business attire guide that can be found on the AU Portal under the following link:

First impressions are important so make sure you are dressed appropriately for an interview or meeting. Note that some occasions require business professional while others may only require business casual so be sure to research beforehand which is appropriate for the event you are attending. If you are just starting your professional wardrobe, pick up versatile pieces that can be used to make a variety of different outfits. If you are interested in purchasing professional attire here is a list of places that offer male and female attire at reasonable prices:

  • JC Penney
  • Kohl's
  • Burlington Coat Factory
  • T.J. Maxx
We look forward to seeing you at these events looking great in your professional wear!
