While Classic Cleaners dry cleaning professionals weren’t actually in attendance at the November 9th Job Fair at the Hamilton County 4-H Exhibition Center in Noblesville, they had a strong presence at the event.
That’s because many of the perfectly pressed and starched shirts and freshly pressed business suits worn by the hundreds of job applicants – and the interviewers representing their employers – sported that Classic Cleaners professional “look”.
“In an interview,” according to Virginia Tech’s Division of Student Affairs, “your attire plays a supporting role. Appropriate attire supports your image as a person who takes the interview process seriously and understands the nature of the industry in which you are trying to become employed.”
Classic Cleaners knows. That’s why, throughout the year, Classic Cleaners in Noblesville and other locations act as a collection site, accepting interview-appropriate suits and blouses on hangars. Where needed, the clothes are dry cleaned, then delivered to the Indianapolis Dress For Success boutique.
Career.vt.edu offers important tips about interview clothing:
- Conservative colors (navy, dark green, brown, black)
- Solids, rather than plaids or patterns
- Clean and well-pressed
- No dangling threads or sales tags
At Classic Cleaners, we’re in the business of creating that critical first impression that helps applicants actually land jobs!
