Today I am at a career fair for my new job. It’s a bit surreal to be back doing what I had done pretty exclusively for the last 4 years, but from a completely different perspective and with a largely different objective.
I pulled out the old profesh clothes, dusted off my recruiter shoes, and tried to make myself look both approachable, yet knowledgeable. Hopefully, I was successful, because I talked to a ton of people and would hate for them to have all been disappointed.
The (professional) little black dress was always my go-to for recruiting, and I wore my teal shoes pretty often (you’d be surprised how much teal goes with) because they are comfortable, but cute and unexpected. The tights were to keep me warm (although, they are hole-y, so they didn’t keep me THAT warm), but also to add some pizazz. And, of course I accessorized with products from our store – that’s just good marketing sense (I know marketing – I watch Mad Men).
BTW – the scarf, headband, and shoes all have the teal accent color – that just made the 12-year-old-who-used-to-wear-all-one-color-from-head-to-toe inside of me very happy.
