Lone Star College-Kingwood Showcases "Career Gear"

Lone Star College-Kingwood Showcases "Career Gear"The world may have gone casual but there are still certain expectations for the professional workplace. A golf shirt and khakis may be acceptable on the job, but first, you must get the job and most employers are still impressed by the best dressed candidate. LSC-Kingwood invites you to “Career Gear,” March 25 at 12:30 p.m., a fashion show highlighting what to wear to make a great impression at your next interview.

There is an old saying that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. That is never truer than in a job interview. Today’s job market is extremely competitive and in many cases there may be more than a dozen candidates who have very similar qualifications. What sets them apart? Most employers look for a candidate who will successfully fit into their work environment. That criterion includes a strong knowledge base, past experience, a positive interview and overall impression. While it may not be listed on the job application, appearance of the candidate can strongly influence the employer’s choice and differentiate the candidates.

Good grooming is a given, but what to wear? “Career Gear” has the answer! Join us for a look at outfits that make the best impression for that all important interview. Wardrobe looks are courtesy of our local retailers, White House/Black Market, Jos.A. BANK, and Stein Mart. They will feature a variety of looks both age appropriate and flattering for different body types.

The community is invited to this free event which will be held in the Student Conference Center (SCC) located at 20000 Kingwood Drive. Food and door prizes will be provided.

Visit the Career Center on campus located in the SCC room 205 where you can receive assistance with career exploration, resume preparation, job search - both full and part-time, and brush up on interview skills. Don’t miss the Career Connections Job Fair with numerous local employers on Wednesday, March 26, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the SCC patio, and bring plenty of resumes.
