You have a big job interview coming up. This is your dream job! So you put on your worn out jeans, flip flops, and your favorite t-shirt (it’s your favorite because it only has a few stains and holes). Clearly, you are dressed for success and are definitely going to land this job. Just kidding. Never ever wear that to an interview. Ever. In this workshop, we will discuss some “do’s” and “don’ts” on professional presentation.
