The "Dress for Success" fashion show was held at Grand Valley State University.
ALLENDALE, Mich. (WZZM) -- How do you dress for success? Experts say dressing professionally is the way to succeed.
The "Dress for Success" fashion show was held Wednesday night by Grand Valley State University's hospitality and tourism management students. The event was intended to give other GVSU students a chance to see the right way to dress for a variety of jobs.
"With the job market the way it is right now, it's really important for students -- for anyone looking for a job -- to go in and make a great first impression," says image consultant Meri-Beth Verhulst.
"A lot of times, you can't get into the inner office if you don't present yourself in a way that's confident or professional," she says "That doesn't mean paying the most money for your clothes, but simply taking care. Just as you would take care to make your resume -- you should take care putting the right outfit on and take care with the little details."
Students were also able to select free work and interview outfits, which were donated by GVSU professors and other employees.
