Job Fair Top 10’s

After today’s visit to a sizeable job fair, I’ve come to the conclusion that there are some things people just must not know—otherwise they would not do them. So to help clear up any ambiguity, here’s today’s list of …..
Top Ten Things People Should Know Before Going To a Job Fair:
• That overly died, permed hair is no longer flattering
• That a royal blue sweater, tan pants (too short), and RED socks don’t match
• That even if the clothes aren’t totally appropriate, everything can benefit from being pressed
• That well fitting pants look better than ones that are too tight across the derriere
• That lip rings are better off left at home
• That posture counts—straight up is better than slumped and shuffling
• That bright and energetic works better than dull-eyed and dour
• That not all recruiters know how to carry on a conversation, so you’d better be ready with some openers and questions
• That going from booth to booth with a friend in tow is not a good idea
• That cell phones should be turned off at the door
