The Career Expo is held in an effort to offer students, and job seekers in general, a variety of learning experiences to complement their job search efforts.

The Image Consultant/Fashion Show kicks off with a presentation by nationally acclaimed image consultant, Sara Canaday, who will give participants tips and strategies designed to brand a successful self-image.

The presentation is scheduled from 1 – 2:30 p.m.

“Audience members can expect to learn to recognize the importance of developing a professional image by selecting appropriate workplace attire, thus leading to greater career success potential,” said Martinez.

She added that this is the first time an event such as this one is held during the Career Expo and that they are looking at other creative ways to enhance TAMIU students’ marketability.

For those who need a more hands-on approach, free individualized makeovers, hosted by Dillard’s, will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis Wednesday, March 3 from 1 – 4 p.m. in SC 114.
