William Woods University students are about to hit the runway to exhibit what’s in, and what’s out, of professional fashion.
Twelve students have volunteered to model outfits for professional dress, business casual clothing, and what-not-to-wear. The fashion show will be at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 12, in Dulany Auditorium.
Amy Dittmer, director of career services and student transition, will host the event, and all clothing will be provided by Cato Fashion in Fulton, Mo.
According to Dittmer, Career Services wants students to realize the importance of knowing what is appropriate dress in the professional workplace in order to maintain positive relationships and respect in the office.
“It is crucial for our students to understand that what they may wear out socially is NOT always appropriate to wear to work,” said Dittmer. “We want to provide them with all the tools possible to succeed in the professional world.”
Career Services aims to educate and empower students and alumni in the development of lifelong career strategies for a diverse world. Career Services provides a wide range of services for students and alumni of the university, such as career exploration and planning, resume and cover letter development, job and internship services, graduate school search assistance, study abroad information, and a library of career resources.
