The Los Angeles Urban League Young Professionals (LAULYP) are working with the Crenshaw High School students to understand the importance of dressing for success. We will be providing tips and advice on what to wear to work and to job interviews.
Purpose: In job-hunting, first impressions are critical. Remember, you are marketing a product — yourself — to a potential employer, and the first thing the employer sees when greeting you is your attire. Will dressing properly get you the job? Of course not, but it will give you a competitive edge and a positive first impression. With cover letters, it's the opening paragraph and a quick scan of your qualifications. With resumes, it is a quick scan of your accomplishments. With the job interview, it's how you're dressed that sets the tone of the interview.
When: Saturday, April 16th, 2011 9:00 a.m. -- 3:00 p.m.
Where: Crenshaw High School -- Library 5010 11th Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90043
Volunteers: Volunteers needed to dress in "what not to wear & what to wear" business and business casual outfits. Volunteers would participate in a "Fashion Show". After the "Fashion Show" volunteers would chaperon and guide students through shopping for clothes.
