Dress for Success: Making a Good Impression Without Saying a Word

Dress for Success: Making a Good Impression Without Saying a Word

Twice in mid-October, several students attended a workshop entitled “Dress for Success: Making a Good Impression Without Saying a Word.” The workshop began with a discussion about first impressions and how long it takes to form them. Research shows that we have a mere tenth of a second to make a first impression, and so we have to do everything we can to make that impression good, even before we open our mouths and say a word!

Several topics were covered in this workshop, including standard dress codes for different events, such as debates, class presentations, and job interviews. There was also lots of conversation concerning the context of these events, especially when it came to culture. In the end, both the students and the workshop leader learned about how to make good impressions across different cultures.

This workshop was part of a series that is meant to help students prepare for their professional and academic futures as well as give them opportunities to practice listening and speaking in English.
