As we all know the struggle of navigating dress codes, the Career Center is looking for students to help us create a catalog of what the different kinds of professional attire look like. We want to help you tailor your professional wardrobe to your taste and your needs so that you feel comfortable and confident heading into that interview or networking event. For this purpose we are looking for students who represent a diverse set of body types and dress tastes to feature in our catalog and Instagram campaign on how to Dress To Impress! We will be consulting the models on their preferences and curating outfits which they will wear for a photo shoot.

If you want to do something new and experience a day in the life of a model please contact s_koleva@coloradocollege.edu or kdunner@coloradocollege.edu
