Students, need a refresher course on what you should or shouldn’t wear to a job interview?

Roanoke College’s Alpha Kappa Psi business fraternity is hosting a fashion show on Feb. 6 to show students what’s appropriate and what’s not appropriate to wear when interviewing for a job.

At the show, the fraternity also will accept clothing donations for local Goodwill stores.

Roanoke students, faculty and staff will be participating in this fun filled fashion show from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Colket Center’s Wortmann Ballroom.

The idea behind the show stems from Ashby McGarry, a Roanoke senior and president of AKPsi. She wanted to organize and bring the event to campus in order to better prepare students who are going into the work force.

The pageant will feature student models who will be judged based on three different outfit choices.

1.            Representing the major – An outfit that students would wear in their work field

2.            Outfits not to wear on a job interview

3.            Clothing that is appropriate for a job interview

The judges will be three Roanoke faculty and staff members. They are Amy Foster, assistant director of Career Services, Richard Bond, an instructor in the Business Administration & Economics department, and Dr. Brian Chisom, associate dean of students.

All attendees are asked to bring old clothes to donate to Goodwill stores.

“This show will be the funniest way to prepare the student body for their future,” McGarry said.
