Dress Code

Many of our events require members to dress business professional or business casual. Unsure of what to wear? Take a look at our findings or reach out to any officer for assistance. 

*Rockwell Career Center offers Bauer students the opportunity to borrow suites and separates for both men and women for events such as career fair, interviews, and other professional events at no cost! They even cover the dry cleaning cost. If you’re interested, visit the Rockwell Career Center during regular business hours.

Basic Guidlines

Men

  • Hair: Should be clean, neat, and recently trimmed. Shave off beards or trim other facial hair; this includes nose and ear. Pull back longer hair or dreadlocks.
  • Jewelry: Probably only one pierced ear is acceptable, depending on the job and the field. Piercings other than the ears are not recommended for the interview. If you are going to wear a watch, wear a dress watch.
  • Tattoos: Should be covered.
  • Smells: Go light on aftershave/ cologne/ aromatic oils. You want them to listen to your words, not think about how you smell. Be freshly showered and use deodorant.

Women

  • Hair: Clean, neat, and recently trimmed. If you fiddle with your hair or it gets in your way, pull it back off your face. Natural looking colors are more widely accepted. If you have dreadlocks, pull them back.
  • Jewelry: In most cases, wear small, unobtrusive jewelry. One set of earrings, a necklace, watch, etc. is recommended, unless you are going to a “creative” job. No noisy bracelets, bangles, etc. Piercings other than ears are not recommended for the interview.
  • Tattoos: Should be covered.
  • Smells: Go light on perfume/ cologne/ aromatic oils, or do not wear any at all. Be freshly showered and use deodorant.
