Lawrence, Kan. (Vocus/PRWEB) March 08, 2011
Dressing professionally is an important, but costly, aspect to finding a new career. The way you dress can have a profound effect on the interview process – and it’s a part of the interview experience that you can control.
Pinnacle Career Institute (PCI) understands having the right skills and education is not the only factor to landing a job. On March 12, PCI is hosting an event to address the importance of dressing professionally for an interview or new job without going over your budget. The “Dress for Success on a Budget” event will be held from noon to 2 p.m. at its Lawrence campus.
“Employers read a great deal into the way you look, and the way you dress can impact that way you carry yourself which can influence how you perform in an interview environment,” said Jeremy Cooper, Executive Director of Pinnacle Career Institute – Lawrence.
Attendants will learn ways to maximize their dollar when shopping for a new wardrobe. Some of the topics that will be addressed include:
- How to purchase interview clothing within your budget
- How to work with the items that you may already have in your closet
- How to make your wardrobe go further in the first few weeks of work
- Shopping on a budget
- New looks and different ways to wear the clothing that you already own
Tickets can be purchased in advance for $1 or at the door for $2. Snacks and beverages will be served. All proceeds will go to Pinnacle Career Institute’s Ambassador Club, which helps students with financial need. For additional information about the “Dress for Success on a Budget” event, please contact Pinnacle Career Institute at 785-841-9640.
