The Dress for Success trip was an educational shopping trip held the weekend before the Career Fair for the College of Science and Engineering. At this event, we had SWE leaders volunteer to help younger students find appropriate attire for the career fair. In addition to finding professional clothing, the group discussed conversational tactics and elevator pitches for the event. This educational event promoted the professional development of many young women and gave them confidence before approaching company representatives with their resumes.
