Professional dress at the LVCCE

Welcome! We are glad that you are planning to come to the Lehigh Valley Collegiate Career Expo. In order to help you make a great first impression (and increase your chances of being interviewed and hired) we REQUIRE professional dress at this event. Check out the sample pictures (click to enlarge) and follow the guidelines below.

While the workday dress code varies depending on the industry and type of work, it is always appropriate to wear a business suit to a job fair. If you donít have a suit, try to mimic that professional look with conservative clothing. If you have any questions about whether your interview attire is appropriate, please contact your college's Career Services staff prior to the Expo for guidance.
