Customer Dress Code

Suggestions on what to wear when you come to the Career Center

SLATE MCC is a business setting and since our focus is giving you the tools to attain new or better employment, we require that all participants using our Centers dress in business casual attire. There are employers in our Centers every day to meet and possibly interview potential future employees. For this reason, we want you to be dressed appropriately. You wouldn’t get a second chance to make a good first impression.

Examples of what to wear:

Men: dress slacks or khakis with a dress shirt, golf shirt or sweater, dress shoes or dress boots and socks.
Women: dresses and skirts at or below the knee, dress slacks, or dress suits; sweaters and blouses, dress pumps, dress sandals, boots, or flats.

Examples of what not to wear:

• Shorts
• Provocative or revealing clothing
• Athletic attire
• T-shirts
• Flip-flops
• Slippers
• Pajamas
• Boxer shorts
• Pants sagging below the waist
• Tank/halter tops
• Beachwear

Please realize that our overall goal for enforcing this dress code is to ensure you have every opportunity to get the kind of employment you’re seeking. If you’re unsure about what is appropriate or inappropriate attire, please ask any SLATE MCC employee. In case you don’t have appropriate attire, please let us know, we have resources available to assist.
