Career Services at WWU offers a lesson in professional fashion

William Woods University students are about to hit the runway
to exhibit what’s in, and what’s out, of professional fashion.

Twelve students have volunteered to model outfits for
professional dress, business casual clothing, and what-not-to-wear. The fashion
show will be at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 12, in Dulany Auditorium.
 
Amy Dittmer, director of career services and student
transition, will host the event, and all clothing will be provided by Cato
Fashion in Fulton, Mo.
 
According to Dittmer, Career Services wants students to
realize the importance of knowing what is appropriate dress in the professional
workplace in order to maintain positive relationships and respect in the
office.
 
“It is crucial for our students to understand that what they
may wear out socially is NOT always appropriate to wear to work,” said Dittmer.
“We want to provide them with all the tools possible to succeed in the
professional world.” 
 
Career Services aims to
educate and empower students and alumni in the development of lifelong career
strategies for a diverse world. Career Services provides a wide range of
services for students and alumni of the university, such as career exploration
and planning, resume and cover letter development, job and internship services,
graduate school search assistance, study abroad information, and a library of
career resources.
